Mini Cooper

My favourite. The Mini Cooper... My first car. It was white and had nicknames: Didine and Pitchounette...

Love me a Mini Cooper, the car I learned to drive in, also one of the cars the ex used to rallye in!

I've never had a Mini Cooper, but I've thought they would be fun.

Randy said...

I am so jealous, I would love to have a Mini. Old or new I am not picky.

Before leaving the States I went to a "minis" garage with a friend of mine to have her car repaired: I regret to this day not to have taken a picture of the parking lot full of dozens of minis: what a view!
Hooray to the Mini Coopers!

That is what I call a cute car, both inside and outside!:)
- Happy weekend!

VP said...

A favorite of mine too, my (elder) cousin had one of these and going around with her was my first approach at driving.

Love the old minis Ceil, I had a Morris, bright red with yellow wheels, everyone called it a 'Noddy' car. The first car is always the best oui!

Lucky you! I would love to drive a Mini Cooper around town! Not sure how I'd feel on highway shared by enormous trucks, though.

The Mini Cooper, nice car indeed. Some days ago I've seen in Turin a very old one: it looked so sweet and odd in the traffic, with those funny little wheels...!

Lowell said...

The Mini Cooper has become a relatively popular car here...you see lots of them on the road. I've not been in one, but they intrique me. Cute shot!

@ Lowell: this isn't the BMW Mini but the original...

Birdman said...

Not a cooper guy, really. What is the history of the car over there?

Dianne said...

A really classy Mini-Cooper Ciel ... and I just love that RED!!
Great car for zipping around in traffic .... I'm pleased you liked my Ferrari.

I'm quite fond of the original 'mini' as well as the cooper. I've never driven one, but I understand they are very fun. Nice color on this one!

Jack said...

Nice image, Ciel. Love the Union Jack pillows and model car. I never got interested in Minis, because I am tall and didn't think I would fit. But, recently a tall friend bought one and it amazed me that it is actually more spacious than I thought.

Halcyon said...

I always wanted a Mini. :D
