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:

Paper Minis, Microcars & More…

Wed., July 3, 2007 – A reader submitted this cool site that features classic Minis made of folded paper, along with other cool cars, scooters and racecars, including microcars such as the Isetta and Messerschmitt.

Included among the many classic Minis are a Mini limo, a snowmobile-type Mini, a radical blower-engined Mini, a couple versions of Mini panel vans and a couple Monte Carlo Rally Minis.

Check it out, particularly the slide show.

Ichayama’s Paper Cards:

One language-translation site interprets the Japanese on the homepage to read:

“Welcome to ‘the soldier of the card.’ With this sight the paper construction which Ichiyama makes is introduced.”

There’s a way to get folding templates for making a Mini of your own, but we don’t read Japanese. Can anyone help us out with that?
