The Mini Cooper, one of the most iconic cars ever made and a staple of 1960s British Culture. Marketed as the Austin Seven and Morris Mini-Minor and having featured in a number of hit movies including the Italian Job, Austin Powers and Mr Bean as well as competitive race competitions and Rally’s. Even the younger generation who these days can only experience the German BMW version will likely know or have heard stories from someone with an association or memories of this fine little car. A gift engraved with this artwork is sure to be appreciated by a car enthusiast or former owner of this British icon.
Amusing Story about a Mini Cooper car!
Apart from its legendary status this car was also known for its ability to Rust…as I found out when my dad, who owned one, opened the door and it simply fell off in a comedy fashion….I didn’t think it was comedy at the time, being about 5 years old, expecting the car to fall apart like the cartoons…I wanted out….and I made sure dad knew it by screaming the whole way home! It would therefore be a travesty not to have an engraving of this legend in our catalogue.
