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:

Winding Roads, Crazy Grins

Thurs., July 19, 2007 – For classic Mini owners, seeing a sign like the one pictured here quickly results in a big, crazy grin on their faces. This pic is shot just outside the back gate from our former Camarillo showroom, which – speaking of crazy – was located in a business incubator on the grounds of the former state mental hospital. Exiting the back gate and encountering this sign was kinda unfair, as few could test-drive a bunch of our Minis and leave empty-handed. My most-recent showroom in Ventura (just blocks from the beach) was a number of miles from the nearest twisties, but a run along the coast or up to the lake wasn’t bad at all. Our current brokering office in Agoura Hills is located not far from Malibu Canyon Road, Kanan Road, Mulholland Drive and the famous “Rock Store,” where motorcyclists from all over Southern California – including Jay Leno – congregate on the weekends after their canyon runs.

Nothing like an after-work run through the mountains and down to the beach to watch the sun go down to clear out the cobwebs – and put another of those crazy smiles on our faces…
