Payments to foreign governments must be reduced, if the nation doesn't want to go bankrupt. People must again learn to work, instead of living on public assistance.”

You ever seen an original Mini?  I don't think you'd fit.

I love that car!! I could fit in that car....
I love mini's too. My grandmother used to have a red one, with wooden sides. Of course the steering wheel was on the other side.... :whatever:

Nope, you're right- I can't fault you for having a good eye for cars.  Unless of course you're considering the Mini Clubman as the modern one, to which I would say you are blind.  :-)

I wonder what the legroom is like on an original Mini.  Our B's have those deep foot wells that put your knees at the flywheel.  The Mini doesn't have that luxury.

I'm not sure.  I do know they were designed to fit into a 10x4 foot parking spot.

I almost bought one of those in OKC about ten years ago.  He also had a couple BGTs, a TF, an A, and several Bs for sale.  I think he was asking 5K.
