At EDSA, on my way SMX Convention center to attend the iPanema fashion show last year, I saw this blue car which caught a lot of commuter's attention. I don't know a lot of things about wheels, so I ask hubby about its model and I was told that it's the iconic mini cooper. I believe this one is vintage, but the owner might have customized it already.
In Philippines showbiz, actress Angelica Panganiban is famous with the mini cooper that was given to her by model/ actor boyfriend Derek Ramsey as an anniversary gift back in 2009. It was a yellow mini cooper car which Angelica named as "Baby James". That time, her mini probably costed over a million already. Oh well, what a very lucky pretty girl.
Now back to me, I still do not know how to drive and I don't think I would want to drive ever. If am only as brave as those drivers who run through EDSA, racing with buses, taxis and jeepneys. If only I have the guts, then I guess I will drive not just mini cars, I will also push myself in driving bigger cars like this Hyundai Tucson which I saw at Kotsebook.com. Cars are just too cute sometimes, right?
Last night while on the way home, I spotted this vintage mini cooper again parked outside a store near our place. I saw him a couple of times before, however I was not lucky to have my camera with me.
