Here’s Where It All Started

1964 Mini Cooper
That’s me in the foreground. That’s my dad’s 1964 Mini Cooper behind. Beside that is another Mini owned by friends of my parents. I don’t consciously remember this car, but I suspect that’s where my love affair with cars, and particularly British cars, began.

Here’s a couple more photos of the Mini. The first is on a ferry headed for northern Germany (we were living in Germany at the time). I’m assuming my parents went to England to pick the car up but it must have been the European model because the steering wheel is on the left.

The second photo shows it freshly washed. Gotta admit, it is cute. So was the Mini wagon we had later.
