... in with the also semi-new??? :???:



When Edlinda got her '04 Jeep, she said she always wanted one. She also liked the Mini Cooper and we even test drove one at the time. After "killing" the Jeep, it took quite some time for her to feel comfortable driving anything!

Incidentally, once she did feel like driving again, she mentioned once that she "could drive a Bug!" Hearing that I jumped right on the Bug my friend was thinking of selling!!!

Eventually she "required" a new car so she went out and bought another Jeep, this time a 2WD Liberty. Though still liking the Mini, she felt safer in a BIG suv.

Well, that was a couple of years ago. This week she asked me "how about trading the Jeep for a Mini?" To which I replied "It's your car. If that's what you want and can afford it, go ahead!"

So she looked on the interwebs and found a couple of'em. Juan a 4 door and the other a 2 door. I suggested the tudor. So off she went to CARMAX and traded her Jeep for this '12:

Not just a tudor but also a 2 seater. Haven't driven it myself yet but I bet it's gonna be a super fun drive! :razz:

Never knew there was a 2-seat Mini. Looks nice - I hope that Edlinda is very happy.

The "Mini" ain't so mini any more huh? Of course the beetle isn't small either.

Nice man. She is going to love it! I almost bought one when I was looking and ended up with the Jetta. Super fun car.
