Recently it was brought to my attention that I have not been properly noting MINIs or Minis (thanks Corey Brown!)
For those of you who, like me, are new to the M(ini)INI community allow me to break it down for you! The British Minis were definitely considered Minis. Sadly, they stopped making Minis and eventually were bought out by BMW. Everyone needed a way to differentiate the British manufactured cars from the BMW manufactured cars and thus the MINI was born.
Henceforth, I will be referring to MINIs as MINIs unless I am specifically talking about a Classic Mini, in which case I will respect their tradition!
