I’ve owned Minis since I was 19. My first car was a red ’92 Mini Cooper SPi called Monte. I loved it to bits, but I crashed it. So I bought another one, but that one rusted and fell apart. So I bought another one. And so it went on.
Now, after a 10 year layoff, I own a Mini again. I keep a diary of all my Mini-oriented fun and games at ma.ttcave.ca/mini.
