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:

MINI Grows…. and So Does Interest in Older Ones…

Thurs., April 12, 2007 – Don Racine, a long-time “MiniManiac” with a lot of stories (some of which we’ll be featuring here), sent this pic of the new 2007 MINI and its comparison to the classic….

The type’s teeny-tiny, so here’s what it says:

Biggest Mini Yet

The latest Mini Cooper may be small by American standards, but it is 2.4 inches longer than last year’s [ie: 2006] model, and about two feet longer than the original.

(If you can’t see it, the outline is superimposed over the original Mini).

A Footnote:

We got an email yesterday from “R.W.” (from Boise, Idaho) that starts, “I recently discovered your website, while trolling for Minis for sale. I have a 2003 MINI, but am interested in an older one, as well.”

And what’s that giggling I hear from classic Mini owners?
