San Francisco Street Sighting - 1967 Austin Mini Cooper S
Lately we've been looking at a lot of huge cars here, so today let's switch it up with a classic Mini. This one's a Cooper S from the late '60s. I didn't spend a whole lot of time shooting it, so I don't know much about it. From what I can see in the pictures, this Cooper has been customized quite a bit with a roll bar, fender flares, different wheels and an aftermarket grille. The yellow-tinted headlamps give it a French-market appearance. If the taillight design, script badging and rear window shape are any indication, I think this is a 1967 car, an early Mark II. Mini fans, please feel free to correct me if I'm wrong.
I have to hand it to the owner for picking a custom wheel that isn't a Minilite or knock-off of a Minilite. The eight-spoke slotted design is kind of interesting, though I can't identify the maker. Likewise, the monochromatic yellow color stands out from most other Minis. Apart from that, what can I say? It's a classic Mini and those are always welcome in my viewfinder. You'll be seeing more of them in the future.
