Minis look like so much fun! Those rims are awesome, but really, the whole car is great. Yet more evidence that OPC cluster together: Vanagon, Mini, and VW Thing all on the same block!

epic black mamba's. I'm getting an itch to drive one of these now, as SeattleO said, they look like too much fun.

Yessir, the quintessential British compact! I love this example, it would sure be a blast to drive!

This and the Vanagon are mine, the Thing is (unfortunately) not mine. Thanks for all the great comments! It IS a ridiculous amount of fun to buzz around in. The wife let me take it out to Portland International Raceway last summer. I was probably the least expensive car out there (Farrari 430 Scuderia *cough* Bentley Continental *cough cough*), but it was an absolute blast. I was smiling for a week.

Also, really excited about this site. Learned about it when I saw some strange guy taking pics of my cars :P Keep up the good work guys!

Mambas are about the only aftermarket rims that look good on a Mini. Love it.

No im afraid i dont agree the only wheels that look good on mini are minilites (as in original Italian job lim & on the rally cars) I am in the uk and don't recall ever seeing mamba wheels!
