I wonder if Brittney's dad will cut us a deal on the MCS Cabrio. The seat belts probably don't work that's why she never buckles her kids in.

Is it Adam's?! I always see it but never knew who drove it. Damn, I was hoping for Kari.

I believe that Grant Wilson - co-founder of TAPS (SciFi show Ghost Hunters) - drives one. I saw an episode where he left his keys on a table and there is no hiding that distinctive MINI key!

I think Adam said something on his show the other day like when I had a MINI Cooper. I think he sold it. He did drive his silver MCS on his TLC show "The Adam Carolla Project" where they remodeled a house. He also drove a silver 350z.

You can stream the show online if you want to hear it: http://adam.freefm.com/

Sting owns/has owned one.

Now, if you include the classic mini, we have:
- The Beatles
- Peter Ustinov
- Peter Selers
- David Bowie
- Mick Jagger
- Kate Moss
- Princess Margaret
- Twiggy
- Enzo Ferrari

(from the book "MINI" by Patrick Paternie)

Among his stable of exotics,
2 Rolls Phantoms, An Aston Martin, and a million $$ Bugatti Veyron, Simon Cowell (of IDOL) spends most of his time driving what he describes as "a very fast mini cooper". Nice to be known in good company!

And one of the guys from SCMM bought Heather Locklear's mini--complete with Richie Sambora's dent that he added.

Good question...

Altough, I doubt they'd tell, because their PM box would probably explode.
