Mini Cooper, Aruba

Some years ago, I owned one of the new Mini Cooper cars. It was a great machine, a roller-skate that was fun to drive. I was surprised to find a few of the original Mini’s here in Aruba. Such as this one at the Sky Dive operation.

The car is in good shape for living on a tropical island. I chatted with the owner and hope to do an interview with him for my Doin’ Time With Dan videos. Here’s another look at the car.

I imagine there are lots of relics rolling around the Caribbean, and not just in Cuba, either. There are a number of classic cars and pickup trucks here in Aruba, not to mention things like juke boxes, Coca-Cola machines, and so on. Sometimes the sights are not on the beach. Keep looking, you may find a diamond in the rough!
