Christ! for some reason or another I ended up taking the Missis Mini into town yesterday afternoon.

Yes, I felt like a right shirt lifter driving it - and what an odd experience it was!

Firstly, other road users are polite to you, and let you out at junctions etc.

Secondly (and this is the weird bit), grown up blokes in other Mini's were flashing me and giving me the 'Mini Wave' as I passed them on the roads.....it all felt a bit gay to me!

Give me the contempt expressed by other road users towards my Cayenne Turbo any day! LOL

Did they wink at you as well? They probably WERE shirtlifters,and wanted some back-door action with a fellow mini owner

You can't argue with that, he knows all the antics of shirt lifters ;) ;)

I drive the mini from time to time and often get the mini wave - but it's usually from some nice young blond lass :D You must be doing something wrong mate ;)

I reckon it had nothing to do with the car, Mosi. They all recognised you :crackup:

That must be it then!

My boyish good looks were being appreciated by the local bottyboys as they cruised around town looking for other young likeminded men.

Is that thumb and index finger touching with the other 3 fingers parallel to the index finger, then the wave is the said combination moving up and down?

Numpty, its a right hoot. Because they have a wheel essentially at each corner, they literally handle like go-carts. Not quick in a straight line, but because you can carry so much speed into a corner, you can literally slingshot them into and out of corners. Quite good fun really - but best done under the cover of darkness so no one can see you driving it!
