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:

Why, Oh Why Did I Let This One Go?

May 24, 2004 – This Island Blue Cooper with a 1380cc and a 5-speed transmission just left for its new home in Arlington, Washington, but it was a hard one to see go away.

My first Mini was the same colors, Island Blue with an Old English White roof. However, this one had a great road motor and the five-speed helped it to cruise effortlessly at freeway speeds, even more so than a conventional Mini.

My wife thinks I got into the Mini business just so I could have a bunch of Minis for myself. When I saw this one head down the road, I’m thinking she just might be right…

Ryan F., please take good care of it, and give it a good home, okay? And keep me posted on your Mini adventures.
