26 August: The birthday of the Mini!

here we are
here we are

On 26 August 1959, I was getting ready to enter my senior of high school, and across the pond in GB, BMC introduced two new cars: the Morris Mini Minor, and the Austin Seven 850.

The name Mini stuck, as did the front drive transverse engine package, which has become the most imitated design ever.

Today, Brad and I worked on Mini, and tried gluing the valve cover gasket on both sides.
