Mighty (très élégante) "Mini"



A very fancy car show will take place today at the very fancy golf course. Our next door neighbor is a car buff and told me that PV is trying to match the elegance of the Pebble Beach event.

Personally, I think Minis are engineering marvels. This "chico" car was parked on Chico St in Malaga Cove neighborhood.

I LOVE Minis. Wish I had one although I'd feel safer in one if so many BIG trucks didn't drive at such high speeds.

I love the way they look like toy cars. Don't see to many of them in Los Angeles -- this is, after all, the land of the darned SUV -- but when I do, I always smile.

Like the angle on this. ANd the great trees framing the top.

You know, they're larger on the inside than they are on the outside. :-)
I test drove a standard shift Mini, and it was a lot of fun to drive.

They really are an iconic car. The new design hasn't taken anything awaty from this British classic. My sister just bought a Mini (in black and grey) and it is fun to drive!

Btw, loved the pink bouganvillia yesterday. Reminds me of holidays abroad :)

That was interesting background information about Donald Trump and his intentions for PV. I also love mini coopers!
