    Back in 1959, BMC changed Britain's automotive landscape with the unveiling of the original Mini. 54 years on and the little saloon remains as charming and iconic as ever.

    Graham Reid of the Heritage Garage is the West Coast's top expert on all things Mini. A restorer, customizer, and racer, Reid is a dedicated enthusiast and ardent lover of the UK's most recognizable automobile.

    There's no one more fitting than he to explain the why's and how's of the Mini's enduring legacy.

    The 1959 Morris Mini Minor was my first car, and I have been enamored with all things Mini/MINI ever since. :Thumbsup::cornut::ihih:

    Graham is a great guy that has shared his knowledge with many a Mini enthusiast. We're very fortunate to have more than a handful of high caliber Classic Mini experts out here on the sunset coast... I'd like to experience a V-Tech some day, but will always stick by my original Cooper S.

    Thanks for posting up the video Nathan!
