The Goosemobile — Who doesn't love a Mini, who doesn't have a Mini story? This is simply a brilliant car, so it may not be the best performer but that's easily improved. The handling is what sets the Mini apart. It's just fun. It was my first car, and I will own it again one day.

Pros: Fun

Cons: Needs work

Most Visceral Thrills Of Any Car I've Owned — I had coveted this car for many years and when the opportunity to buy a second car came up, I launched on it. Not a cheap buy at $9K but the body and interior had been fully restored and it had a stunning and expensive paint job. It had a 1275 Cooper S engine bored out to 1310cc, front discs and a couple of other little things, but was mostly stock otherwise. Man, what a blast this car was to drive! In 18 years of driving, probably my favorite all-time most fun moments were in this car, most notably a drive into the Sunshine Coast hinterlands on incredibly winding roads. I had a numb feeling of joy and a stupid grin on my face for the whole drive. All good things go bad though and lil' Blue began to break down at every opportunity. I needed reliable transport and this wasn't it in the end. If I could've afforded it, I would've kept it on as a hobby car, and I still miss it several months later. It was a beautiful car and drew a lot of admirers. Sold it for what I bought it for, so not a bad investment.

Pros: Awesome handling, zippy, park anywhere, fantastic looking, a piece of history

Cons: Crap electrical system, finnicky, either all-go or no-go

Had It Since I Was 16. Been A Shell Just Sitting There All That Time. — Its still mad! Plans are for shaving the seams, hinges and mirrors. Fitting gr5 race arches... cooper s grill flat bumpers and little race mirrors. Repray in mettalic red with 2 gold stripes over the middle. Very heavy tinting. And sitting low on 13x7 3 peice superlights. Oh and lets not forget the plan to fit a turbocharged hyabusa motor into the back! :) haha

Pros: Classic, will outhandle most things on the road.

Cons: Its british.... haha nothing against the english but their cars werent made the best back then...
