BACK IN THE GOOD OLD DAYS
- TONY IN A MINI -
This vehicle, my first - the Austin Mini Minor Mark II - was a real marvel - one awesome, simple and convenient form of transport, and a practical piece of engineering - front wheel drive, transverse engine, standard track, typical big steering wheel and easy to handle. It seated five passengers including driver, with space for luggage behind the rear seats with a spare tire to boot.
I enjoyed driving this vehicle immensely. Simply loved it. Once packed 7 stalwarts in it. Had great fun driving to the beach and picnic spots around Dubai. They were popular in the late 1960s until the mid 1970s.
Austin Mark II, I miss it. Yes, I still do.
