2007 Mini Cooper S: Detours & Closures? No Problem!
March 03, 2008
If I'm offered a car for the night, I usually pick from the available wheels based on vehicle size as I have to park on the crowded streets of West LA. So when I saw the Mini was open, I jumped at the chance.
This time my choice wasn't based on the fun factor or my neighborhood's parking situation, but rather for the fact I was going to cheer on friends at this Sunday's LA Marathon. There were predictions of crowds nearing the one million mark in downtown plus there was a Lakers game... Having a small car to navigate the chaos would be key.
So, thank you to my coworkers for not picking it before me!
I was able to navigate through the cluster, well, mess, with no problem. While waiting for my friends to run by at several locations along the course I overheard plenty of people talking about the problems of parking, traffic and crowds. With the diminutive dimensions of the Mini, I didn't have issues.
Thanks little buddy!
