Cardboard Morris Mini Minor Crammed Into Mini Countryman
Cut out of pint-sized classic shows the real meaning of being mini
Modern Minis are no longer mini in size. The standard hatchback is now on the larger side of the subcompact scale while the Mini Clubman is essentially a small wagon with the same dimensions as a Volkswagen Golf hatchback. Practical Classics, a U.K.-based magazine, has revealed via Facebook that Dutch Mini enthusiast Jeroe Booij, and his photgrapher friend Arno Lingerak, have proved a classic 1959 Morris Mini Minor can fit inside a Mini Countryman.
Using cardboard, rulers, glue, and pens, the two secretly built a cut-out of a 1959 Morris Mini Minor and stuffed it into the Countryman. Practical Classics says that originally, the pair wanted to drive a real car into the Countryman, but they ultimately decided against it because they didn't want to tear down the interior, and the narrow hatch wouldn't have been wide enough for the classic Mini to even fit. Luckily, big parts like the roof and rear end didn't present much issue getting crammed inside, allowing the pair to finish stuffing the Mini Minor cutout into the interior with only its front end being squeezed.
