Trading in my Austin Mini 1987

Today I have traded in my lovely Mini for a better car. It was a necessary step in the evolution towards my new job, but rational thought has nothing to do with it. I have over a 5 year relationship with this beautiful car. I have been working on it in the hot sun, in the rain outside in the street, and I loved every minute of it.

My kids really have loved having "the blue car" in the family and they both giggle with glee when we ride around in it. I will never forget my little girl helping me tuning the points on a sunny summer evening, passing the tools to me and asking Daddy "what is that... what does this do..." With a Mini in your life, you have it really good.

Some of my favorite memories are pictured here and I hope some day in the future to be able to claim that I own a real Mini again. May the future owner of this Mini enjoy it as much as I did. I am afraid this will be my last Mini posting for some time.
