Personal Mini

This one is a bit personal for me -- my father owned a Mini and some of my earliest memories are of the dark green Mini at the back of our driveway. While the Hot Wheels models are nice, this is a simple rendering that captures the spirit of the car in the way that the Hot Wheels one doesn't.


Details like the half-window -- which tell you the model maker knew that this car had a sliding window instead of a winder -- show an intimacy with the source material.
