This afternoon I had my Mini out ready for its MOT this weekend so I thought I'd take a few pictures of the new and old together and here they are for you to compare and contrast.

Neither are looking at the best as they could both do with a wash.

That is SO cool! Man, that old car is looking GREAT!! What a marvelous picture (and collection - I love how they mirror each other).

Is that an MGB behind the original Mini?

Superb looking pair of cars.
It is - well spotted. It's my father's 1970 MGB roadster. It's been off the road for the past few years and needs a bit of work doing on it such as new shocks and petrol tank fitting.

That is a BEAUTIFUL classic Mini! What year is it?

My dream is to one day have a blue/white Cooper S classic MINI like that to putt around in.

Love old Blue sweet looking Ride when you have the old and new next to each other sure shows how big Cars got over the Years. The new Mini looks like a Ford Transit Delivery Van in Size next to the original.:eek:

I call that "having the best of both worlds!" Ha! Love em both but must admit "the original" grabs me the most! You're a lucky man!

Cheers,

John

Show these pictures to anyone who knocks the F56 as not being a Mini. Yes it's bigger - it has actual crash protection. But it's clear that the design philosophy was carried across and the outline of what it is can't be clearer.
