First Sentence
Although my interest in Mini Coopers reaches back to the early 1960s, it was only as recently as May 1987 that my enthusiasm for these fine little cars took on a far more active role. Read the first page

A great book for the enthusiast.

Service from Amazon was great....only concerns are text mistakes in printing....page 3 refers to the front and back covers as photos of Triumph TR2s!!

By Jonnie M. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
John Parnell's precise first-hand research + Paul Debois' great close-up photography yield an absolutely indispensible reference book for the serious Mini Cooper buyer + restorer.
With 120 pages featuring over 200 specially commissioned color photos that target specific distinctions between models + international variations, this book will reveal the true history of any car claiming to be an authentic Cooper or S. All those fake Coopers would undermine the value of real ones without this guide to distinguish between them.
Once you own a real Cooper, this book will point out which details are original + which details have been modified over the life of the car. That information should prove invaluable for winning concours events.
Very thorough book 7 Sept. 2008
By M. Røyrvik - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Very well written and thorough book, but few pictures of the MKIII Cooper S.
As I bought it prior to restoration of a MKIII, it was a little dissapointing, but else, thumbs up!
