stopped at a gas station today and this lady with three small kids drove up in a brand-spanking new red one.

I asked if I could look at it and she said they picked it up from the dealer Friday and Saturday while driving a truck threw up a rock and cracked the windshield and then also put a nice ugly dent in the top about an inch above the windshield line. It was ugly and just bad luck.

She said it was her husbands car but she really liked the way it would take corners. Of course, she was comparing it to her "car", which was a Toyota Sienna.

Those are some pretty good cars imo. I like really like them and rarely see any driven around where I am at. I do like to visit the bmw dealership in my area and drool over that plus many many other carlicious cars.

I just bought a chili red Mini Cooper in January! They have a Cooper dealership in Mentor, Ohio about an hour and a half from my house. I'll post some pics of it as soon as I get it all cleaned up nice and pretty.

They all live here in Georgia!! I see 2-3 a day, seriously. I hope that this means that there will be some price leveling in the near future for the Quaife...

They're only selling 20k a year. That's what they've planned and they're apparently sticking to it. I would love to have one, but don't have the $24,000 for a nicely equipped S.

Actually, they sold about 30,000 MINI Coopers in the US during the past year. (The MINI Cooper has been on sale in the US since 3/22/2002.) I just picked up my 2003 MINI Cooper S three weeks ago today!
It's way fun to drive.

I see 20 a day where I am, you could see like 3 or 4 on the same block. I don't even notice them much anymore, but then again I am probably sick of seeing allot of car people drool over. I am so tired of seeing Porsche, BMW, Mercedes, or Hummer! Infact the best way to get attention in a car here is drive a real beater, everyone will stop and stair in shock!
