Re: Nice article...
"It's about as "mini" as 70's Land Rover."
You take that back!
Series 1 LandRover: Length 3.35m, Width 1.55m, Height 1.87m
BMW MINI : Length 3.63m, Width 1.69m, Height 1.42m
(OK, the Series 1 was earlier than the BMW, and to be fair, a MINI is almost exactly the same size as a 70's LandRover, within a few cm!)
