The most fun you can have driving short of a flying a
biplane 50' off the ground! Stiff like it was made out
of bridge girder.
You don't drive this car, you strap it on. Repeals
inertia, makes flat 90 degree turns!
BRIGHT (like pools of incandescent mercury) Driving Lights
come on with high beams: you own a lighthouse.
This car has serious attitude and is a fantastic chick
Puts a silly grin on people's face until they see it go,
then they really get excited.
Accept no substitutes...
The "new" BMW faux
Mini is a porker, nearly 60% heavier
This is the older, original Mini-Cooper, a true sports car
and *not* a "daily driver".
It is not as safe or dependable as the new BMW Mini, but
it's a hell of lot more fun.
As with all British sports cars, you must adapt to it and
fuss with it, but it's worth it.
If you're any kind of driver, it's guaranteed to plaster an
idiot grin across your face.
It's a cross between a car, go-cart and motorcycle.

Reason for selling:
As my father had done with Bugattis (see below), I had hoped to
pass mechanicing along to my son with this car, but he's not that
sort of gearhead.
I haven't the time to give it the attention and flight time it
deserves, so I am looking to pass it on to another pilot.
