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:

Greater Love Hath No Man Than This…

May 30 & 31, 2004 – As we all enjoy our holiday weekend, here’s hoping we’re all remembering the reason for this particular season.

Regardless of your particular religious persuasion, you’ve got to admit the wisdom in this particular quote: “Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.” (John 15:13) (KJV).

On this Memorial Day weekend, we at MiniGuy hope all are remembering those who made the ultimate sacrifice, who gave up their lives in the service of their country so that we could enjoy the freedoms we enjoy today.

Our local paper, the Los Angeles Daily News, is running some great articles about veterans and their wartime experiences. A few headlines:

Dennis McCarthy column: Now’s time for honors and praise

Ex-soldier still recalls frozen fight

Wounded Marine says a miracle saved him

Vietnam changed career soldier

Former POW brings comrades home

Valley vets make trek to ceremony



Yes, peace is a worthy goal, but sometimes freedom isn’t “free.”

Here’s another quote, generally attributed to English philosopher-politician Edmund Burke, “All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.”

Thanks to all our servicemen who have done – or are now doing – something to rid the world of evil dictators, tyrants, regimes and others who would take away our God-given rights to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness!

Yes, even if your version of “the pursuit of happiness” is simply to drive and tinker with tiny British cars…
