OK, I will admit it, I love Minis. I love old ones and new ones and large ones and small ones and … well, you get the picture. Something about the A-series engine, the transverse drivetrain, and the squat looks just appeal to me. Yes I drive a Vanden Plas Princess 1100, but in truth, all forms of the ADO16 are just large Minis. Yes, I said it. And I mean it.
Anyway, our video this week is titled “Owning A Classic Mini”. Just below the clip you will see the information about the young man who made the video and why. I think it is a wonderful effort and just goes to show the kind of devotion these cars inspire.
Here is a short look into what it’s like to own a Classic Mini. Before I brought the black Mini shown in the thumbnail I watched just about every Classic Mini video on YouTube to get an understanding of what it’s like to drive and work on one. I didn’t find what I was looking for, just a few un-stabilised GoPro shots. Hopefully this will give you a better understanding of what it is truly like to own one of these fantastic cars!
I produced the video for my final unit on the Creative Media course at Abingdon and Witney College. Interlock Productions.
I think you will enjoy it!
