(14 images, Part 1) – If you’ve been following my blog, by now you’ll know I have a fondness for small things.
On Sunday 7/11, I visited MiniFest ’21 at Claremont to appreciate and celebrate an eclectic collection of many of Tasmania’s Mini’s. One of the smallest cars on the road, with dare I say, the biggest personality and passionate owners to match!
I once owned and restored a green Leyland Mini, not the most practical, but definitely the most fun car to drive! My earliest Mini memory is one of being in the back seat of a white one, I must have only been about four! It belonged to a friend of my parents who lived in a flat next door to my Nanna’s. I thought a kangaroo could easily jump over the car as we drove along.
Almost everyone has a Mini story, whether they owned one or knew someone with one. Feel free to share yours in the comments below.
More Tasmanian Mini’s to come, with a few very rare and special ones, in the next post!
