Okay, so I still think the "Mini" is a pretty weird car. I mean, especially when compared to my minivan it seems like a toy. And a small toy at that. But I'm starting to get used to seeing them around, and hoping I don't inadvertantly step on one.

But today while stopped at a red light I saw one that really caught my eye. It was small (of course) and a sort of burnt orange, and looked older. I blinked a couple of times and realized that no, it wasn't one of the current run of Minis. It was an original. A "real" Mini, so to speak.

And then its light turned green and it went down the road past me and I realized... the driver sat on the right hand side of the car. Cool! Not only was it an older, real original Mini, but it was British to boot. Now that was neat.
