yay retro! loving the 50s, 60s and 70s mini's!

Back in 1958 my parents had one of the first mini's in production - it was red - and perfect...that is from what I can see on the black and white photos in any case! (I wasn't around).

Later after a pale blue Ford Anglia, they were back onto mini's and in the 1970s we had one just like this in lime green. We took our first trip abroad in our beloved mini - Mum, Dad, me and my brother on a 3 week epic camping trip to Germany, Austria and Switzerland. We took the tent, all our food (tinned - including Smash potato!), cooking paraphenalia and bedding - no idea how we fitted everything in and survived!- but we did!

Later in the 70s the mini collection continued with a khaki green and navy blue one...happy days - they're just not the same now are they?
