VEHICLE STORY

For some reason I've alway been interested in MINI Coopers. My Aunt has 3, my uncle has 1, my cousin has 1, and that led me to persuading my mom into getting her first one when I was 13 years old. Not only did I learn how to drive in that car but I also learned how to drive a manual with that car. I was very picky when I had my check list to buy a MINI and this one fit the bill almost perfectly. On March 7th 2013 my family and I drove all the way to Chicago to pick it up. Before you think my parents bought the car- no, I did. I also buy the mods even though I've gotten some for my birthday. I cherish this car so much. It has taken me on so many adventures and met the most amazing people of my life. It is not very fast and most people don't like it or might even laugh at it but I don't care. I love and most of all I have so much fun with it. I plan to keep the car as long as possible with retiring it in the next few years and keeping it to have it for my kids one day and just continue to have a blast with it.
