It should duly noted that during the last week of October 2005, I posted that our new 2006 MINI Cooper S convertible had finally arrived the previous week. In other words, we took delivery of our MINI ten years ago this week.
It was worth the wait.
(It should be noted that +Katherine Derbyshire claims that all convertibles are actually born the first day of spring.)
The MINI is still in our garage, happily motoring in both top down and top up weather. This makes the MINI our longest tenured car ever.
It did get out on the road this summer to celebrate its longevity; my Facebook page has various updates and pictures from our 8100 mile coast-to-coast drive.
