Who me? I wasnt down there. I met an older couple last weekend at the Smithville car show/town festival thing and they told me their son works at the apple store and drives a black classic Mini that is all tinted out. Maybe it was him?

Sorry, my bad. It must have been him, but at a closing rate of 90 mph it does get difficult. I mean how many black late 80's Mini Coopers are there in KC.

Now that I think about it the driver was on the left side and not the right.

this is true but we like seeing familiar faces out on the road and they are certainly more rare than say, a honda civic.

It wasn't real rusty, just a little rough around the edges. Still a sharp little ride, putting right down the road. There's nothing like seeing a Classic on the move. Saw a couple in California last month.

It wasn't the same Classic as the one I saw in the lot at the All Brit show unless a lot of work has been done to it in the last month. It was a little further down the road to restoration.
