March 22, 2012 - Today marks the 10th Anniversary for MINI in the US. What a great 10 year ride it has been. From the introduction 10 years of the JustaCooper to the Coupe and Roadster has been quite the journey. I remember it like it was yesterday when I spotted my first MINI in the wild. I had seen in the car mags, I read them all, still do. At the time I was working for the railroad as a technical writer / help desk jockey in downtown Baltimore. Driving a Jeep Cherokee and wanting something new. Leaving work one night I happened to spot a MINI make a turn at the bottom of hill. Even from two blocks away I could see how it zipped around the corner. Driving a bit extra legal I caught up a few block later and followed the little car onto the highway. This little section in downtown Baltimore is a bit of fun with a few curves. Needless to say there was just no way I could keep up in a Jeep. I knew then I wanted one... Whats your MINI story?
