My Ultimate British

No, not the Queen! You cannot buy her, decorate her roof with an union jack (in lieu of the crown) and proudly drive her down the streets  of..anywhere. Even constructing that sentence was nonsensical. I said you cannot, do not even think about it 🙂

Not the doubledecker, not Mr. Churchil (I am sorry, sir Winston). Not Prince William, nor Katerin, Kate Moss even not Stephen Fry. Not the London Eye, nor the fish and chips. And not the Tea time.

Not even this young gentleman:

No, no, no….

Let me introduce you to one of my loves.

A true baby, a sweetheart, a dream.

The Mini.

The Mini has won many awards over the years, perhaps the most notable include: “Car of the Century” (Autocar magazine 1995), “Number One Classic Car of All Time” (Classic & Sports Car magazine 1996) and “European Car of the Century” in a worldwide Internet poll run by the prestigious Global Automotive Elections Foundation in 1999. The Mini managed second place (behind the Model T Ford) for “Global Car of the Century” in that same poll.

The Mini is not another motor vehicle. It is … a statement. A toy. A delight for the soul and the senses.

Come as you are little thing  – old one, new one, One one, Cooper one, red one, blue one, just come my way.

    Wish I could get my hands on one, too! Beautiful little cars. Not quite the same, but kind of the same love was my 1975 and a half MGB convertible (the first ones out with the “rubber baby buggy bumpers”.
