I've owned 2 of them and they're great cars! Mine we the same colour, too. There's nothing quite like a British Mini when it comes to getting around towns quickly; they nip about superbly, can be parked on a sixpence and are very economical. On the downside you are driving a car designed in the 1950s and that shows at times; 4 gears (although better ratios with the last ones) little in the way of crumple zones and active safely features and the accommodation's quite cramped. In spite of everything I loved them both! I sold them at a profit and in the second case, a "W" reg, with the higher ratio gearbox, immediately regretted it. Hey, that's life! Every Mini driver waves and flashes their lights when they pass another one, so the camaraderie amongst is great.
