Richard Hammond Reviews The Iconic 1959 Mini Cooper
Richard Hammond reviews the iconic 1959 Mini Cooper and takes it for a spin
as he tries to reacquaint himself with the British classic. With the
introduction of the new Mini, Richard wonders if it can ever recapture the
nostalgia and magic the original versions have.
