My dream MINI Cooper is British Racing green, with a white roof, and white side mirrors and white racing stripes on the bonnet and boot. No sunroof, because it's hot enough where we live near the desert, I don't want to give the sun any extra help. The inside would be brown with wood textured panel for the dash.

My actual MINI, after scouring all the ads that were within a two-hour driving distance, turned out to be Indy Blue, with a white roof and white side mirrors, no racing stripes, and it did have a sunroof. I was fine with the color. It was pretty close to TARDIS Blue, so I dubbed it, The TARDIS, explaining that it has Time Lord Technology because it's "bigger on the inside."
Earlier this year, my 2004 MINI developed a fatal illness with it's transmission. Reluctantly, we (Okay, I was much more reluctant than my husband), traded it in for a brand new Scion XD. We had a choice between Charcoal, and Black Currant Metallic. Of course, I had to choose the weird color. It's almost as small as the MINI, but with more space on the inside, including room to seat five, and 4-doors instead of two. It doesn't look as retro on the inside as my MINI did, but it does have a USB port, AUX hook up, and Bluetooth for phones and/or iPods, which the MINI did not have.
|This is just from the internet. But it looks just like my car.|
|Yep, that's my little Scion to the left of the MINI.|
Okay, that is all. Every time I see a blue MINI like that, I just think my car must miss me, because it seems to be following me around....Yeah, that's it. My car misses ME.
