Hi, My name is Edna Espasas. I bought my Mini Cooper MK II – “Innocenti” in 1969, while leaving in Italy. I would see the Minis daily around town ( Livorno, Italy) and all my friends were talking about the Mini’s competing in the Monte Carlo Rallies in the late 60’. I felt in love with them. I named her “mini mello“ which would translate to “my little caramel or sweetie” ..
The original body color was a crème color, but the roof was always black. I did paint the body in 1970, when I took her down to Puerto Rico. Then I moved to Florida in 1984, and brought it up with me. I use her as a second car. I still have my Mini, although it has been garaged for the past 15 years. The attached pictures were taken in 1984, when I moved to Florida.
Hola Flaca - y ¿quién es esa paraeja tán guapa con sus chamaquitos tán lindos? Me acuerdo haberlos conocido hacen m-u-u-u-uchos años en una isla que, en aquel entonces, llamaban 'del encanto'. Se les quiere de gratis. Cariños a Fredo. un abrazo de, el Gordo
