Mike and Nancy's Mini

2007-12-09 21:52:50.176571+00 by meuon 3 comments

What is red, black and gets 30-40mpg? 40+ if drafting? What might turn around at the top of the driveway (untested)? What can feel like a go-cart, but rides like a much nicer car? What has all kinds of gadgets like multiple color LED mood lighting and a speedometer/radio/status-display/?/? the size of a dinner plate?

The red and black Mini Cooper we bought in Atlanta yesterday...

We took a ride in the "S" model, which was a thrill, but it was a potential liability in my hands. The base model we got is still very peppy and a little more practical.

Cool car and from what I can tell they don't depreciate.

Would I fit in one?

They have an amazing amount of room, and it's easier to get in and out of than most cars. Yes, I think you'd fit.

Congrats, they're awesome little cars.

I test drove one and fit in it quite well, my wife at the time was 5'0" and I'm a between 6'2" and 6'4", depending on which convenience store I'm leaving. (shamelessly stolen from Ron White)
