My main vehicle is a 2003 GMC Safari van. It will soon be 10 years old. Has 138,000 miles on it. I like it as I can carry a full sheet of plywood, 8-foot racks, and other big stuff. It drinks a lot of gas and is rather big for just driving back and forth to work. I decided to keep the van but get something smaller and easier on gas. Since I will still have the van I don't need a lot of people or cargo capacity. That being the case time for something fun. So I now own a 2012 Mini Cooper Coupe. The coupe is their 2-seater that went on sale back in October. There are not many of them on the road as production is somewhat limited it appears. Of course the challenge is getting in and out of this car gracefully. That was never a problem with the van.
