When I was in high school, my dad got a 2001 mini, but not the super charged one. It was a blast of a little car to run around in. My buddy's folks got an S, so he always won. I got egged head on ours but luckily they all hit the windshield except for the one egg that hit the drivers mirror with the window down. I had egg all over my face and lost it
They had a head start but I caught up to them. It was two cars, with the second being a jeep Cherokee jamming me from catching the egg tosser. My girlfriend at the time for her cop brother to run the jeep plates. The kid went to church with my now wife. Small world. My dad ended up selling it off after he tried cleaning the yoke off of the headliner. What a mess!
About 5 years ago, my same buddy and I rally raced his folks old school mini. I think it was a '67. It was a right hand drive with a positive ground system. He navigated and I drove, which was awesome! I really liked the old school ones.
Have you ever noticed that the exhaust is a coke can?
