* Dream Car *

I love Mini Coopers.
I have loved them ever since I was a little girl.
I have several toy/model Mini Coopers, in fact. My favorite one has a British flag on the roof.
I have a goal to own a Mini Cooper at least once in my life, if only for a year or so.
The problem with the Mini Cooper is that it's not extremely practical.
It only has two doors, a very cramped back seat, and minimal luggage space.
It's also very low to the ground, and I like to be higher off the ground when I drive. It makes me feel safer.
Despite all that, I was still determined to own a Mini Cooper at some point, even if it was only briefly.
Preferably a red one, with little Union Jacks on the side mirrors.
And maybe some racing stripes.

And THEN, I discovered that Mini Cooper had solved all of the problems I mentioned above, just for me (or so I like to think).
This year they came out with the Mini Cooper Countryman.
A 4-door SUV/crossover higher ground clearance Mini Cooper.
And it's perfect.

Yes, it's a little bigger than the original Mini Cooper. But I love it.

The back seats. With the awesome center console rail that you can clip different accessories into (cupholders etc.).

Fortunately, Thomas loves Mini Coopers too, otherwise this could be a major point of contention in our marriage.
But he is just as excited by the Mini Cooper Countryman as I am.
[Ok, maybe I'm a little bit more excited.]
Excuse me while I go drool over more pictures.
Oh, and you can also build your own custom Mini Cooper Countryman on their website. 
I'll probably do that too *cough* again.
