I took the mini to a car gathering at a retirement community this morning. 9-10:30. Still in the somewhat cool part of the day. Put on for the residents to look at old cars. It was fun.

Howdy Folks! Be sure to drive or work on your Minis tomorrow, as it is the 64th Birthday of the Mini being sold! See the attached text below which is courtesy of ARonline... (I've tried to include the photo portion which shows Issigonis next to 621 AOK, so let's see how that shows up)

Happy birthday Mini! On 26 August 1959, motoring history was made. Exactly 64 years ago, the first Mini was launched to the public and its creator, Sir Alexander Arnold Constantine Issigonis stood proudly alongside to show the world his – and the British Motor Corporation‘s – answer to the bubble cars. As we all know, the way we looked at small cars, and what they were capable of, changed in that one single moment. The front-wheel-drive Mini could seat four passengers and their luggage and was capable of driving up what would become Britain’s motorway network (the Preston by-pass had been opened late in 1958, but most people will tell you that the motorway age really began with the opening of the M1 in November 1959) at its future speed limit of 70mph. It was clever, it was cheap and, in short, it was a revolution. Best, Mark - The MiniNut

All Together Now.... Everybody......
