  2. hehe... those are great. :)

    A teacher here at school has an old one, and it has a flag (the british flag IIRC) painted all over it.

    cool cars, but I doubt I could fit in one easily.
     
  3. Yeah, but the older one is cooler.

    They are very cool, especially since BMW is producing them.

    I almost bought one pre-sale last year. Then my wife got pregnant...yada yada


    So I bought an Audi instead.

    I guess my days of driving funny little cars are over....
     
  6. They are great. My boss just bought one last weekend and it is fast. we were doing 50 mph in the city no problem.

    The back looks painful though.

    Only for a little while. I have two little yard apes myself 8 and 6. They can get in and out of the back seat and buckle themselves up.

    I like em but i can fit all my bass gear [including upright + bassman 200 + 3BGs] into my impala and still have room for 1-2 other people + a suitcase and a sleeping bag :D Not my idea of a gig mobile but i'd take it if i had the chance.

    I'd like to take a Cooper S out on the backroads of Charlottesville and see what it can do. The thing is supposed to handle like a go-kart.

    THE MATCH!

    DODGE RAM vs. Cooper Mini

    Cute as a coffee table, but I like my chances in nothing smaller than a Volvo.
     
  15. I wouldnt mind having a mini with the British flag painted all over it, despite I have no english anecestry whatsoever :p


    Other than that, I'll keep my 'stang

    Cool enough. But drop a 327 in the sumbitch, and that sucker'll haul ass.

    Easily;)

    I still dig the Mini, one of my neighbors has one. The PT swallows gear like crazy.

    I have heard of some reliability issues.
     
  18. :D

    A couple of people around Ithaca have them. They look cool, but with so little ground clearance, I can't imagine them being very good in the snow. Also, while I am of the opinion that the "commanding view of the road" offered by SUVs is highly overrated (3 years behind the wheel of a Cherokee have convinced me of this), I would be very uncomfortable in such a low position.

    Most importantly, though, I'm 6'2" and it's all in the legs--so no thanks.

    Am I the only one here who doesn't like them?
