Happy birth­day, Mini

Mini Magazine - - Letters -

When you clean out a sec­ond­hand car you’ve just bought, most peo­ple might find a few old coins, or per­haps some cig­a­rette butts. Not me. I re­cently bought a 1984 metal­lic green Mini May­fair as a restora­tion project, and found a birth­day card in it. Not to the owner or an­other per­son, but from the owner to their ac­tual car. This thrifty guy ob­vi­ously wanted his money’s worth as he wished the Mini a happy Christ­mas and New Year in the same card. At first I was pretty happy about this, as I fig­ured that any­one who takes the time to write a 13th birth­day card for their car must’ve re­ally looked af­ter it. On the other hand, some sim­ple math­e­mat­ics would de­duce that the card has been in­side the Mini since 1997, so per­haps not! Bray­den

Well, Mini shave feel­ing too ... Has any­one else found any­thing strange in a Mini they’ve just bought? Let us know!

Happy 13th birth­day... to my car!
