The Mini: Forty Years of Fun

 
9780004140810: The Mini: Forty Years of Fun

It was forty years ago today. This book is a celebration of the Mini, Britain’s greatest little car, and all that it stands for. A 160 page, full-colour, fully illustrated book of the Mini’s life.

The Mini tells the story of the car’s development over time and the story of how mini owners have changed and the uses to which the car has been put.

A socio-political examination of the Mini as a statement of class, sex, status and environmental intention. The book is also full of tales of racing, naughty goings-on and the Mini’s life in films and music.

The book includes original and contemporary photography, and features interviews with famous, and infamous people who have known and loved Minis, people such as Sterling Moss, Jamie Blandford, Jeremy Clarkson, Damon Hill, Twiggy, David Bailey, George Harrison, and Julie Christie.

The book also includes the history of workers struggles, rust, wood, neglect decline and of the rebirth of the mini. Why the Mini endured for so long and finally the authors’ highly subjective choice of the best Mini ever built, including pictures and drawings.
