Met the previous owner of my Mini

I met the previous owner of my 2006 Mini Cooper S last night. Really a good / nice guy. His Daughter got into a fender bender (no fault of her own) and the insurance company totaled it. I bought the MCS at an auction for less than $1,000.

He was pleased that his car is having a second life - but I felt he was also a little sad that his "fun" car is no longer his.

I promised I would keep him in the loop on the rebuild and engine mods - and let him take the Mini out after the car is finished.

He smiled. "I'd like that" he said.
