Last Friday night I got hired to shoot this classic Mini that the owner is listing for sale soon. I fell in love with the car and loved all the small details. We shot it in about an hour and I was constantly finding little things that kept catching my eye. Let me know what you think! Canon 6D's 17-40L, 35 f2 IS, and 135L for the shots.

It definitely does! I drive a Honda Fit that's pretty small, this thing is about half the size of my car! Looks absolutely comical next to a full sized truck, lol. And thanks!

Very nice photographs of a very nice car. Superb design by Alec Issigonis. You could eat your dinner of that engine.

Very nice shots ! I've always loved the original mini. I like what he's done (and not done) to the car. The seats look like a smart change.

Now that's a proper Mini Cooper compared to todays modern version. Nice set of images, dont think the owner will have a problem selling it.

The originals are definitely cool.

I've got two of the new ones......BMW has done a good job with them. Really a gas to drive.

Very nice work on the photos. I have a 2013 Mini. It seems so small until you see one of the originals.

minis were notorious for breaking down (especially in the rain) one always needs a spare... ;-)a

You're not wrong about that. I had one as my first car in the early '70s. The distributor was right at the front of the tiny engine bay and got rather wet. Standard fix was to put an ice cream container over it to keep most of the water out! (What's a distributor I hear you young fellas ask. :)

Ya kiddin'? All British cars of that era were notorious for breaking down, rain or not. So were the Brit bikes. The Brits have been making drivers into mechanics for many years.  :p

The old joke was, "Why do the English like warm beer?"
Because they have Lucas refrigerators! ; D
