Well, that was something! This morning on Rte. 9, I spotted what looked to be a baby Mini. Turned out to be a red (and black-roofed) Mini 1000, with the driver on the right side. I wonder what sort of gerbilpower it has?

As the name suggests, 1000 cc engine :)

Not much horsepower, I'd guess around 50bhp, but they don't really need it, they weigh nothing :)

I'm an expat Brit, and the older style mini is all over the UK :)

If you tried to drive this up Route 2 from Alewife to Arlington Heights, would you get there?

Ahh, the original Mini! A classic British Car. There are a bunch of those around here ... you just have to know where to look.

Can you buy them from anyone here? I'm assuming they are legal to drive.

Mini's are great, I love em :)

Sure can. I thought about getting one last summer.

There are Mini Cooper car clubs where you can probably find out where some are being sold.

I owned a Mini for some time last year and absolutely LOVED it.

I will always be a Mini Lover (Oy! Anyone with elementrary knowledge of a certain Indian language will find that statement hilarious...)
