    Just a silly

    But the Grandson is going to be a happy camper in a couple of weeks, me thinks!

    I get a lot of fun comments about that one and the one on the other side which says, "Kiss My S." A ladyfriend who also has a Cooper S has one on hers that says, "You Just Got Beat by a Girl." Small, but naughty quick they are, they are.

    I may be mistaken but it looks like the yellow one is towing the red one. Cute, Chris!

    Beautyfull present Chris!
    you will enjoy driving with your grandson!

    anyway, I think, it will be a sad day when your grandson will be too tall to fit in the yellow car... but it will be more sad when he will not fit even in the red one! and looking to how much today's children are growing it will happen soon!
    just kidding!

    AAAAAAHHH! Cute! What a great gift, not only for the child, for me as well, I had a good chuckle and it made my day! You would'nt be related to this old gentleman, Santa, by the way?

    really? an Autobianchi in Canada??
    do you remember the model? A112? Y10? ...?
    if it were an A112 and you still own it, you can sold for about 12000 USD (the "Abarth" model of the early 80)

    Many of our Mini owners are well over 6 foot tall and they fit just fine...in my red one, you would have to be 6 feet, 6 inches to have your head close to the headliner or feet touch the firewall, and then just barely...decpetively roomy.

    Hello Nicola, it was in Germany, I bought it from an old gentleman and used it to learn to drive, it turned on a dime, took 4$ of gas, it was great (A112) spiffed up model, mag wheels, sport steering wheel, sheep skin on the seat(added by the old gent.). Sorry man, I sold it back a year later, the old guy was trilled to have it back!
