MiniGuy was a DMV-licensed dealer/broker in California for 12 years, but all cars on this site are “For Sale by Owner.” For details or more info, please contact us. We also assist in having thorough pre-purchase evaluations performed, Escrow services to provide for more-secure funds and title transfers, and door-to-door transport. When considering a car for purchase – including ones on this site, it's prudent to pay for a specialist or your mechanic to check them out, since these will not necessarily have undergone the same scrutiny they would've had before being offered in MiniGuy's former showroom. We also offer "Buyers Agent" services for locating cars, or consulting, or assisting with negotiations or transactions.

NOTE: We're always seeking classic Minis for these "Consignment / For Sale by Owner" pages. Please use our Vehicle Request Form or contact us at:

First the Father, Then the Son…

May 22, 2004 – We at MiniGuy have sold more than a half-dozen pairs of “father-son” Minis, and one of them was featured in our May 14 item below.

Here’s another.

Dick R. kept dropping by our showroom to ogle our Minis, but when he showed up his wife Tabea and she gave him her blessing, he adopted the Mini we were told was “the nicest Cooper S in the world” before we bagged it overseas. We here at MiniGuy have seen a lot of Minis, but certainly not enough to say it’s definitely the nicest one in the world, but it was certainly the nicest one we had ever seen.

In tomorrow’s feature, we’ll tell you about Dick’s son Dave, and the Mini Dave later adopted from us!
