Hello Whee .  This is Tomrosewood . I pick up the Mini in Vancouver on the 18th. Fly there and drive it back to Sacramento. Seller sounds like a great person and maybe I found a new friend as well as a great car. You said you might have some tips about what I need to cross the border. I'm taking my dealers plate and info. looking for a battery operated hair drier for a defog situation. No radio so I have to take alternative music source. Tool bag for sure. 
Tom

Routemaster British double decker bus?

If in doubt, flat out. Colin Mc Rae MBE 1968-2007.

Give a car more power and it goes faster on the straights,
make a car lighter and it's faster everywhere. Colin Chapman.

I had thought that the height and the red paint would have been a hint. Then I realized the version I uploaded was too dark to see the red paint, which made it way too hard.


It was taken from the top window of this vehicle.

It's a trick question! You got 3 correct, but only 2 of them are British. What's the 4th vehicle in the picture? As a hint, the picture is being taken from inside that 4th vehicle...
land rover?
Nope!

The pickup truck fits in well on the rural roads to the East of me.

Bonus points to anyone who can identify the THREE british vehicles in the last picture...

I passed it a few times walking through the garage today. My wife and I are in transition of our "family" vehicle - bought a new-to-us Jeep Liberty to replace the 2004 Suzuki Grand Vitara, which we need to sell off (good for a parts source). That means we are currently a 4-vehicle family with a single width driveway. The Mini is first in, last out. We haven't even had time to take the Jeep for a spin.

Spring in Oregon.  Drove over to Salem to check out two golf courses, a little Taco Bell and then hit a couple Vineyards for a taste and some back roads on the way home. As long as you don't need to go over 60 my car is a kick to drive.

I have to admit, this hobby makes me feel young

Age is factoring into particpation in the Healey Club,    Half of the participants brought their modern rides for 'rain security.

 

Few grandchildren were the Pilots of their Grandfather/Grandmothers cars which was nice to see. Cars are being handed down to those staying in the hobby... Good to see, but numbers are dwindling. 

Mini's are seeming to hold a younger population, but 'high value sale prices will keep some from participating..
     But still good cars are legal now up till 1994 here in the US.. Keeping mini's going! Thanks Japan
