  1. I better keep this brief.

    I'd rather a Messerschmitt. The tandem seating means you get the passenger's legs for armrests, which is great fun with the right passenger.

  7. Mini Mini! Love it. Hit the brakes hard enough and I'd bet you could get air under those rear tires!

  9. Why do you call it an Austin? Even the ad has it right.

    1. Because it is an Austin. The original Mini was a model name, not a make. They sold it under the Austin and Morris brands among others.

    2. Ahem. With the introduction of the Mark III Mini in 1969, BMC replaced the Austin and Morris brands with just "Mini". Given that I own a 1970 Mini 1000, I ought to know. Feel free to google it, I'll wait.

    3. If I am really being pedantic, it was BL by that time, not BMC.
