May 20, 2006 update to the Innocenti Mini Cooper project car

Make Room for Mini

You know, if the Mini didn’t fit in this space, we’d be a little screwed. It’s nice when a plan comes together.

So, without calling a contractor or pulling a permit, how do you turn a standard two-car garage into a three-car garage? Easy. Buy a Mini. After getting rid of some stuff that collected in our editor’s garage, he was able to fit a Mini plus two “regular” cars in there. Yes, the Mini has to be parallel parked in order to fit, but it works.

We also got the Mini registered on Friday, and the process was surprisingly easy. Having the seller’s North Carolina title definitely helped, and to our surprise Innocenti was already listed in Florida’s system. On the way back from the DMV, we stopped at RML Automotive, our local Italian auto specialist. Proprietor Ric Lovecchio seemed pretty intrigued by the little Innocenti.
