1966 Mini Cooper painted dark grey with pewter stripes is the dream. I'm not sure if 1966 is the right year, but I know you have to throw a year out to sound legit. I just know I like the original body type. One day, I will have a little restored gem of my own.
But if I had one of them new ones, a little beauty like this would do the trick. It's a Cooper S, it's red, and drives like a dream.
