    I know there are many versions of the mini and they take a good bit of mileage and seem to be quite pricey.
    I like the original shape, once they started to make them more like a mini carrying a baby with blob type headlights, my heart sank. :(
    I understand the original Minis were made at a loss and so well made they were known for being a mini 'Rolls Royce'?
    They are BMW's these days so less about the quirkiness. The Beetle was another one but that was always German at least.

    The thing about the old cars was you could learn to fix them yourself. My GF has always been into Landrovers and they were like that.

    I had a Landie once.
    You HAD to know how to fix em.
    Never again.
    Nissan 4x4s are so much better.

    Re: Cars Cars Cars

    Weird things that have happened to me on the road:

    First off I'm sorry to say I've killed at least 7 birds...yes birds...by hitting them. But better birds than moose's.

    I once came through a cloverleaf to find a full size van on it's side with the driver still in it. The other drivers were just driving around it! I stopped and climbed up on top (which was actually the side) and opened the door to help the struggling driver get free from his seatbelt. Once out we both jumped down to the ground and off I went.
    My only regret was I wasn't wearing a cape...and a big N on my shirt!

    N.

    I was at Halls at University and I once saw a Reliant Robin come round a severe corner and roll over completely and onto its wheels again!!!
    The driver got out, looked at the car and then got in and just drove off as if it happened every day.

    I should have mentioned the Reliant was a 3 wheeler car !

    We don't get lots of the US cars, we especially don't have as many large cars as there are on the road in the USA. Some of the makes like Chevrolet are beginning to make an impact though. There is going to be a big push for electric cars here in the next 10-20 years so I wonder if the USA is ahead or behind on electric?

    The most popular premium car brand here I think is the Audi range of cars. It used to be the BMW range.

    Do you all watch 'Top Gear' in the USA, its still fun even without the holy trinity of presenters on board.

    Hey Car-nation!

    I found your car while I was out on my walk. Where would you like it sent?
