Over the last few months, we have been looking to get another car. Parker wanted a Mini Cooper, while Wendy wanted a Toyota Yaris. Unfortunately, no good deals were found to suit our family. Parker and Wendy also decided that they would share ownership of a car, with Parker paying out Wendy's portion over time. The hunt was on but was taking a lot of time.
A few weeks ago, Wendy found a great 2007 Mini Cooper S (supercharged) in Oakville, ON. With help from our friend Murray, she checked it out and we decided it was the right one. It has less than 80,000 km on it and is in fantastic shape.
Today we picked it up and drove it home to surprise Parker - he had no clue this was happening. We parked it in the garage while Parker was out with his driving instructor. I picked up pizza then put the keys to the new car (which Parker would easily recognize) inside our pizza box.
Below is a quick video showing what happened when Parker S came upon his Cooper S.
This is what it looks like in the daylight (and the rain).
