History:
In 2009 we were looking to replace our '95 Civic, my wife wanted to check out our options rather than simply replacing it with another Civic. I was hoping to find something with good gas mileage and was fun to drive. Mind you at that time I was a muscle car lover so anything less than a V8 would more than likely not be "fun" to drive. Or so I thought.

First stop was a Smart for Two. We looked but didn't test drive it.

Second stop was the MINI dealership. We test drove a Cooper and it was okay. Test drove the Cooper S. Boy did it have some get up and go on the on-ramp to the interstate. So, it was attractive, had good gas mileage, had some oomph, could fit four in a pinch, could fit a lot of stuff in it when the seats were down. Yeah, we signed the papers the next day.

Granted it wasn't until we went with HPMS to the Ozarks that I found out what "fun" really was. My mind was blown at how it handled. I'm now a MINI cultist.

(In 2011 we traded it in for a Clubman.)
