Uncovered: Classic Mini Commercial Featuring Twiggy


Twiggy Mini

Were I given access to a time-travelling hot tub, it’d set the dial to take me back to 1960’s London. No question about it. Not only was the love free, but British rock ‘n roll was cranked up to 11 by the likes of The Kinks, The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, The Troggs, Herman’s Hermits, Donovan, Manfred Mann, The Who and countless more seminal bands. The ‘60s were also a golden age in British car building. During this decade, limey coach builders came out with two of the coolest cars of all times: the Jaguar E-Type roadster and the Mini.

It’s so Cold in the E: Problems for the Mini E in Wintery Weather


Mini E

If you’ve ever actually read through the owner’s manual of any of your electronic gadgets, you probably ran across a warning against using your digital gewgaw in blistering hot or freezing temperatures.

New Mini Clubman on the Horizon, the People Rejoice


Mini Clubman Rally Edition

Well, people like me rejoice.  I’ve always been a huge fan of Mini Coopers; they’re practical, unique, fuel efficient and they handle like a go-cart…that’s a good thing.  When the Clubman came out, I considered trading in my Subaru, but I couldn’t justify the trade-in.  But now they are just tempting me further with the Mini Clubman Rally Edition.  It gets the full treatment; 17″ wheels, a Midnight black paint job with silver racing stripes, HID’s, a sexy black/anthracite interior, sport package and aero kit, a roof rack (!), and green rear view mirrors…?

Yeah, not sure about the mirrors, but everything else sounds perfect.  Coming in at $32,999, it’s pricey for a Mini, but it’s also going to be very exclusive; only 70 examples of the Rally Edition will be shipped to the states. If you want one, call your Mini dealer today… I mean now, mister.
