I'm Rebecca Wells and this is Ziggy We're from Northeast, Ohio (Cleveland Area)
Why a MINI? In April 2007 my husband’s jeep was totaled and he was dragging me around looking at cars, just a little before that we were watching a car show that did a review on MINI Cooper’s and one of the lines was it is a great car if you can get over the fact that Bob the Builder got Jiggy with the gauges. I insisted that we look at the MINI. My husband fell in love with the MINI and ordered his, Jiggy was received in July 2007. After a few months of having Jiggy, I decided that I wanted a MINI we talked and decided that I would order one in 2009. In February 2008, I was out running around with the family and saw a used MINI on a lot, I pulled in to check it out. It was a 2004 Pepper White with Tartan Red interior. I looked at the car and took it for a drive, I left, white was my least favorite color. Five minutes from the lot I turned around and purchased Ziggy, all within an hour of first seeing her sitting alone. I knew that we were meant to be together, I loved the interior and knew a fabulous vinyl guy, thank goodness skiing was bad that February day or I would have missed out on Ziggy. In March we decided to go to the Dragon I knew I had to have my vinyl before I left. Working with Matt at Visual Graphics, I decided to go with Red metallic vinyl after playing with several designs I came up with the pattern currently on Ziggy. When talking about MY MINI, I always hear yeah but, it’s just a Cooper which lead me to place “Just a Cooper” body art on Ziggy. 63k in three years has been a great deal of fun and we are looking forward to many more MINI miles.
