Cold Start: Dad Will Never Notice

One nice thing about Alec Issigonis’ incredible design for the Mini, seen here in Wolseley Hornet form, with a grafted-on trunk, was the massive door pockets the cars had. This was partially because the early Minis and derivative cars didn’t have roll-down windows, but have sliding ones instead, meaning that the door never needed to house a lowered window glass, freeing up space. Space that can be used for, as we see here, a nice bottle of bourbon, which the child in the ad is clandestinely borrowing to fill his little bottle there in his hand, in order to make the tedious journey to grandma’s slip by in a glorious, brown-liquor haze.

I’m kidding of course – I’m sure that bottle is filled with some other delicious brown fluid, like molasses or mushroom tea or RC cola or gravy. There is a bit of truth behind my little imagined narrative, though: it’s said that Alec Issigonis sized the door pockets to hold a bottle of Gordon’s Gin and a bottle of vermouth so you could have all your martini ingredients right there, ready to go.

We can’t forget CYBER CREDIT GURU in a hurry. My husband was declared bankruptcy in 2019 (and we later on realized that the mobile home in which we lived was included). While I had a debt of $26k and about 9 negative items on my report. As a result, we couldn’t get a mortgage until we had our reports fixed. We were frustrated, there was absolutely nothing we could do until we encountered CYBERCREDITGURU (AT) GMAIL DOT COM / +1 (650) 439 0624 via a positive review about them on a blog. Today we are in a house of our own, all negative items removed and score raised from 430, 470 respectively to 782 each in 6 days. Thanks to team CyberGuru!

GET $3,000 DAILY WITH BLANK ATM CARDS

At first i wasn’t interested in the blank atm card. I first saw it online although i was first reluctant, but soon, I was convinced & shocked when my friend at my place of work got the card from Shadow Web & we both confirmed That it is actually legit, instantly I gave it a try. Ever since then I’ve been withdrawing $3000 everyday using this blank card & the money has been in my own bank account. I am really glad that i gave it a try indeed and i am so happy. This card has really changed my life financially.

This design makes a lot of sense since the OG Mini isn’t a hatch which I always found weird.
I didn’t know the Wolseley Hornet existed and now I want one.
Thanks Jason. *sarcasm

You had me at RC Cola. All that’s needed now is a couple of Moon pies. Not only is that a good lunch or dinner, especially here in the Deep South, that combo has enough sugar to put you out of your misery for a few hours or so.

Are you OK, Jason?
Not one word on those impressive gothic taillights on this car, or what other cars they’re used on?

Among others, yes. I think they’re called the Lucas L695.

I think you got it all wrong. Timmy is poisoning Dad. You see, Dad found Timmy’s collection of Selfridges’ catalogs with all the bra sections dog eared and threw them away. Timmy is pissed!

I think the kid is stocking the car with booze per his parents’ instructions. These cars hit the market at a time when it was perfectly acceptable to put your children in charge of preparing and serving alcoholic beverages. The kid will probably be making screwdrivers and martinis when the family reaches their destination.

Is … that no longer acceptable?
My friends have their kids mix the drinks all the time….
Kids think it’s great fun.

I think it’s frowned upon now, and if your kids are too good at mixing cocktails one of your guests might call CPS. So play it safe and don’t let people outside the family know that your kid has made so many martinis that even James Bond would be impressed with their handiwork.

It’s the UK, so even odds that’s brown sauce for the inevitable picnic lunch advertisers seemed to think family car owners were constantly about to drive to.

Brown sauce sounds like the least appealing sauce around…… But I definitely want to try it!

No self-respecting British dad back then would be drinking bourbon. So must be a smoky Islay Scotch.

“So must be a smoky Islay Scotch.”

I think if gin as the quintessential English liquor.
