I do understand where you're coming from as regards Brit cars. But in my case you have it right: it's definitely madness.

I bought my first one, a Mini, in 1976. That first was then followed by six more Minis, one Hillman Minx, and the Midget. That's some 35 years of Little British Car ownership. And what's even crazier, these things have been my daily drivers the whole time!

I'm not sure what's wrong with me, but it did all seem to start when I watched the 1969 film The Italian Job. Seeing those Minis flying over sidewalks, stairways, and sewers did something to my then 16-year old brain. It just made me laugh, and made me determined to have a Mini.

Trouble is, I'm 52 now, and I'm still laughing...
