For Sale: Off Road Mini Cooper!

00Q0Q_c2fqlb0YI3i_1200x900I’m not sure entirely why I like this build but it certainly is interesting. Maybe not for $6500, but it looks like a lot of fun! It’s a 2008 Mini Cooper fitted to a Suzuki Samurai frame. It’s titled, passed smog, and is ready to rock. Minus the fuel gauge and speedometer and probably few more things not mentioned. Here are the details from the Craig’s List ad.
