The MINI Cooper has long been considered a motoring icon. From its release in the 60s the Cooper won the hearts of people the world over, and to this day with the release of the new generation, it still enjoys a colt following. More often than not I get comments when I pull up in the Cooper with the top down at the local shops. People seem happy to see the MINI and I would imagine this has a lot to do with its history, and how the current models carry on the legacy from the past. The MINI Cooper is such a fun ride, and its always great to see people smile when you roll up, especially with the top down.
