Mini pick-up Truck

This web site will follow the story of my Mini pick-up truck from its birthplace in England to its home in sunny South Florida. Even though I work in the automotive industry, I chased this mini truck for almost 16 years. Now that I own it, I hope you can enjoy some of the cool stories and photos of my Mini from all over the world. You will also meet my friends and family who inspire me to put a smile on your face.

From my family to yours,

Dave, Debi, Matthew, Juliana, and Colt Spinney

Look what I found in the Barn

Mini History

The Mini Cooper is arguably one of the most easily recognizable automobiles ever produced. The original Mini started production in 1959 and quickly became one of the best-selling cars in Europe, with many attributing the transverse engine front-wheel drive layout as a main factor of this success.


Mini Bespoke

Bespoke is the process of taking a stock vehicle, and making it something special – beyond what one can do with an option and color list. I have tried not cutting the orginal body when adding aftermarket products due to the rareness of the these minis.

Family & Friends

I have all the luv and support from my wife Debi!! She and her big sister drive Minis too! Let’s not forget all the friends I have made traveling all over our beautiful country with my mini pick up.

On the Road with Mini

My job in the automotive industry is not just about the luv of cars and trucks but takes me to places I never dreamed I would visit, including USA, Caribbean Islands, Canada, Mexico, Brazil, Germany, France, Italy and of course the UK to visit the birthplace of the Mini.

Mini Toys

I am not alone as still playing with toys at my age. Companies like Hot Wheels and Legos keep designing new products to keep the “Car Culture” going. Maybe my next car or truck will be a Hybrid or EV. Vehicle technology is moving very fast for consumers and businesses.

All Things Mini

Everywhere I go, I am followed by Mini.
