Welcome to the Mini Gallery Page

On this page I will show a variety of images which feature the Classic Mini from postcards to newspaper and magazine articles and personal photographs to anything I can find to make the page amusing and innovative. I hope you will enjoy this page as much as I anticipate creating it.

Mini Christmas sweater

Well I couldn't resist this Christmas design (nothing to do with Wilko) and treated myself - would have preferred this plum colour but ended up with a bright red sweatshirt - still it's the design that counts and red is Santa's colour when all is said and done.

Anyone for Mini Christmas wrapping paper and should it be used for such a mundane task? Is the designer a Classic Mini fan or is it just the shape of our adorable cars that makes them so designer friendly?

Presents wrapped in Xmas paper

Mini fans everywhere were wrapping their presents in the special Nordic range from Wilko - image courtesy of the British Mini Club on Fb

Here is what Wilko say about their 'Nordic Range' - "Add the perfect finish to your presents this year with our Car Kraft Wrapping Paper that's made only for Wilko. This traditional kraft paper is complete with red cars that have Christmas trees on the roof - the perfect symbol to signify getting ready for the big exciting day. With 5 metres of wrapping paper, there's plenty here to keep you going. It's part of our Nordic Country range; a traditionally festive trend from start to finish. With vintage-inspired decorations that are still contemporary at heart, this collection draws upon memories of Christmases from days gone by whilst fast-tracking into the present for a truly unique finish."

Thanks to the British Mini Club on Fb for bringing the Festive design to my attention - then I found some more! Apparently there are baubles and tags and gift bags too! Will be checking out the Wilko site from October onwards this year (2018)

An admiring glance

Quite right too! Who can help but cast an admiring glance? And Michael Caine was nowhere in sight!

Here's a lovely poster created for Royal Mail to commemorate the Top 10 great British achievements, in this case the Classic Mini naturally. I should like to thank my local Postmistress who saved me the original poster of the Mini on an Easel.

The Mini and Union Jack Notebook

I love this notebook which was given to me by my friend, Lorinda (isn't that a nice and unusual name) and ever since receiving this simple little gift I cannot believe how frequently I've utilised it! This is my 'web-page' notebook which I carry about with me all the time because I keep getting ideas and need somewhere to jot them down - this has saved me hours of frustration! - Thanks again!

The invaluable Mini Notebook

Voted 2nd (following the Model T Ford) in the Mail on Sunday's 'Ten of the Greatest Car Designs' beating even the slightly more iconic E-Type Jaguar (from the same stable at the time) the Mini as usual reigns supreme. Read the full article reproduced here
