Ok, for the regular readers of The Garage, I know you are thinking “What is Tom doing? Gary Grant already gave a Mini Cooper S convertible a whole review last month!” I know he did, and Gary loved it, as he loves all Minis. But today, we’re doing something new here at The Garage: a Counterpoint.
You see, this was my first stint behind the wheel of a Mini. Any Mini, for that matter. I knew The Garage had extensively reviewed the Mini, but as an enthusiast, I could not keep away from this car. I HAD to drive it. I owed it to myself. And it so happened the Ultimate Mini was on hand for me to enjoy, the King of the Hill JCW model. I knew I was in for a treat. Wasn’t I?
