Spotted two minis this evening on my way into work, a black one on a trailer heading south over the Arklow bridge and a maroon one heading north on the M11 near Rathnew (I beeped and flashed the hazards at the maroon mini as I passed :D )

Also I spotted a blue mini in a driveway just up a bit from Clohamon on Friday last

Spotted a light brown elf, ZV, in convoy with a sportspack, 99 I think, city bound at Heuston this morning.
Later in Lucan village, I spotted Stuie's maroon clubman estate leaving the church carpark, so naturally I pulled the bus up and let him out! Beautiful whine from the gearbox as she sped away.

In Letterkenny last week I spotted what looked like a mini with a copied roof and nicely spaced wheels. Black in colour. Looked mean.
