Minis and minors from the past

You feel Nano is a small car? You feel Maruti 800 is not spacious enough? Wait until you see the mini cars of the past. I got to see about 4 different mini cars during the Chennai-Pondy Heritage rally 2014. 3 of them from the Mini brand (now owned by BMW) and a Morris Minor, which looked very alike.

The green one above was favorite with kids. They instantly recognized this as a Mr Bean’s car. Mini 1275 GT was probably the most powerful of the lot. It is a tad bigger and more spacious too.
