The not so mini MINIs

Best quote ever about the all new MINI Clubman from Peter Bleakney at CanadianDriver.

"Think of it as the Mini Mullet – business in the front and party in the back."

Read their full review at CanadianDriver: First Drive – 2008 MINI Clubman.  I’m still not foreseeing myself driving a Clubman any time soon, I do have to say that I am liking its greater versatility.  Something about it just doesn’t look right to me.  Even the new MINI Coopers just have something about them I’m not fond of stylistically.  My beloved can even spot a new one!  Must be the elongated bonnets.  They just look bigger and less "MINI".

Of course, this all pales in comparison to the concepts for a new MINI Moke that are up on MotorTrend.

Now that’s just… kind of weird, kind of awesome?  It looks like the lovechild of a MINI Clubman and a Toyota FJ!!  I wonder if that will fit in the condo’s parking lot.  I guess MINI doesn’t have to mean Mini-mini.

I’ll always love my 2005 MINI Cooper S…  ❤
