roadtrip (41)

Last of the original Minis

I was walking down the sidewalk in Kenmare, Co. Kerry, in the morning (Sept. 23), and this guy came across the street, singing to his little girl (see her peeking through the window here). The Mini was his and I asked him about it (we have a Mini Cooper these days, and I used to rent these wonderful little cars in England and Ireland in the ’70s). He said they made Minis up until 2001 (!) and you can tell the last production runs from the silver stripes.
