1965 Austin Mini Cooper S Vintage Racing @ Grattan Michigan
Greg Wold is driving his very fast Mini at the VSCDA races in Grattan. I wish I could take credit for this, but this was Greg's idea. As you can see the car is fast, but watch Greg's footwork and you will see why the car is very fast.

AUSTIN MINI COOPER S 1968 - Modest test drive - Engine sound | SCC TV
Recently we came across this beautiful Austin Mini Cooper S 1968 at The
Gallery in Brummen, The Netherlands. We took the car for a little spin! We
love to hear your comments on our videos or receive a like! Thanks a lot!
The Mini is a small economy car made by the British Motor Corporation (BMC)
and its successors from 1959 until 2000. The original is considered a
British icon of the 1960s. Its space-saving front-wheel drive layout --
allowing 80 per cent of the area of the car's floorpan to be used for
passengers and luggage -- influenced a generation of car makers. The
vehicle is in some ways considered the British equivalent of its German
contemporary the Volkswagen Beetle, which enjoyed similar popularity in
North America. In 1999 the Mini was voted the second most influential car
of the 20th century, behind the Ford Model T.
This distinctive two-door car was designed for BMC by Sir Alec Issigonis.
It was manufactured at the Longbridge and Cowley plants in England, the
Victoria Park / Zetland British Motor Corporation (Australia) factory in
Sydney, Australia, and later also in Spain (Authi), Belgium, Chile, Italy
(Innocenti), Malta, Portugal, South Africa, Uruguay, Venezuela and
Yugoslavia. The Mini Mark I had three major UK updates -- the Mark II, the
Clubman and the Mark III. Within these was a series of variations,
including an estate car, a pick-up truck, a van and the Mini Moke -- a
jeep-like buggy. The Mini Cooper and Cooper "S" were sportier versions that
were successful as rally cars, winning the Monte Carlo Rally four times
from 1964 through to 1967, although in 1966 the Mini was disqualified after
the finish, along with six other British entrants, which included the first
four cars to finish, under a questionable ruling that the cars had used an
illegal combination of headlamps and spotlights.
On introduction in August 1959 the Mini was marketed under the Austin and
Morris names, as the Austin Seven and Morris Mini-Minor. The Austin Seven
was renamed to Austin Mini in January 1962 and Mini became a marque in its
own right in 1969. In 1980 it once again became the Austin Mini and in 1988
the Rover Mini.
