Driving down the mountain we spotted a New Mini. It was cute, but lacking. You see, many years ago both my Mum and myself were fans of the Mini. That is to say the mini when it really was, you know, a mini. Cute as it is I do believe the new mini doesnt hold a candle to the elegance of the original. My Mum has owned several versions of the original – a Mini Cooper (complete with engine souped up by my racing car driver Uncle resulting it being a little car that ROARED), a Mini Clubman and a Mini Studio2.
Our summary today in the old versus new debate was as follows – the old style mini is a “small perfectly formed girl with spark” and the new mini is “a short robust girl with a fat arse”.
