about


The Library of Motoring is an online collection of classic Mini and new MINI information.

I started the first Library of Motoring website on January 1, 2005 as a place to catalog MINI advertisements, brochuresbooks, and magazines for fellow collectors.  That has continued through the years while adding on features such as the MINI Wheel Guide, MINI Colors list, MINI Chronology, and MINI Specifications pages.

With version 3.0, there is a full blog which will contain MINI updates such as facts and figures, events, interesting MINI stories, book reviews, and a bit of news.  It will not try to be a complete news blog since there are already others doing that.

The library holds a large collection of MINI collectibles including an archive of the Collectible of the Day where we featured a different MINI collectible each day for 365 days.  If you can think of an object, MINI has probably made one and branded it!

As with all libraries, the collection is ever-expanding.  There are ongoing charts of MINI Production and Sales figures.  Other sections to be updated include MINI audiovisuals indexes, MINI Special Editions, and the MINI Reference section including a MINI Dictionary.  Online services to be added or expanded include a MINI event calendar, MINI Websites search engine, and possibly even a shop.  Please use the Contact page if there is something you would like to see added to the library.

If you are interested in sponsoring the Library of Motoring, please use the Contact page.

Thanks for reading and come back often.
