Dad's new car

(viewed 1099 times)
Bookmark and Share
When the neighbour retired and reached a certain age, he spent the most
money he'd ever spent on a car and bought a shiny blue TVR. When my dad
retired and reached a certain age, he spent the most money he'd ever
spent on a car (camper vans don't count) and bought a shiny green Mini
Cooper (Classic). He brought it home this morning (10,600 miles and very shiny).

Oh dear. Dad's got one of those too (a project Mini), just not a Cooper. I think he loves that one more.

It is. It has lived in a garage and hasn't really got all that far in its 12 years.

Green is definately the best colour for minis. It was a good choice. : )

Oh man. Thats... thats just... DAMNIT! I have to try and get my license back. And steal your dads car.... and not get caught.

Also, good quality pictures from a T68i. I had one aaages ago. Never got the camera add-on. Bit out of my price range. Now I have D750i. 2mp-based joy!

I bought the camera attachment for about a tenner, off eBay. They got cheaper. Nice and simple. About my level.

I doubt that I'll ever get to drive that car.

10,600 miles on an original mini? was it stolen by a pirate without a driving license? that's amazing!

your dad is a lucky bugger.
