Petrol Prices anything but Mini

Great use of small car, big city minis by the BBC. That Mini is mint!

Adam Fleming spoke to Robert Welch, managing director of private tour firm Small Car Big City, Conservative MP Robert Halfon and John Whiting from the Chartered Institute of Taxation.

Mini Monstrosity - Mini Countryman



Check out the rather large Mini Countryman. Terrible!

Whats that Coming over the hill? That is NOT a mini. It's a monster!

"A new Mini will hit the road later this month - one that has moved miles away from the marque's roots and seems to defy much of the logic of the tiny original."

STIG Book - Ben Collins Autobiography

The BBC lost their fight with the publisher of the new Ben Collins' autobiography, or the STIG as he is better known.



Stig's book 'The Man in the White Suit' is available from £17 on Amazon preorder - sure to be a great seller this Christmas, and would make a great gift for Dads :)

Italian Job Drive in Movie at Alexandra Palace

I have just come across a rather cool event - RAC Drive-In Movies.What could be cooler than heading to Alexandra Palaced in a Convoy of Mini's and watching the Italian Job as a Drive in Movie?

* Tickets cost £15 for RAC Members and £30 for non-members.
* One ticket permits one car and includes two free portions of popcorn and two free drinks per car.
* RAC Members will also get two £10 vouchers to redeem for food and drink (burgers, a side and a soft drink).

Small Car Big City - Tour London in a Classic Mini

This is cool - A guy setup a company offering tours of London in a mini. I like the way mini experts will probably name the years of the minis they use as shown in the clip. Hang on, I say, that is a 90s mini cooper, I can tell by the grill! I wonder if they need a driver, that would be the best job ever!



Watching this makes me miss my Mini even more.. I wonder how much it is? Maybe for this shameless plug I can get a free lift when the Jubilee is down one weekend :P

Driving Experience Gifts - Which is best?

I was just looking at some Red Letter Driving Experiences as gifts to get people at Christmas.



It is a pretty difficult choice, as there are Ferrari's, Aston Martin's, classic cars, rally driving....I am not sure I could choose between them myself, let alone for someone else!

I think I might just end up getting a voucher so they can choose their own driving day!

What car would you choose to drive? I like the sound of the Lotus Exige personally :)
