My first car

Back in 1981 I bought my first car: a Mini. The engine was originally designed for an Austin Allegro and was 1300 CC. Because of the relatively low weight of the car itself, this combination gave a tremendous power-weight ratio. With this car it was possible to make an U-turn with 70 km/h (50 miles/h)! Which I once did on a lonely road, late at night. It gave the same sensation as driving a go-kart.
Unfortenately I couldn't afford the car because a lack of income (I was a student at that time), so within a year I had to sell it. But the car gave me some good memories and a lot of fun to make this drawing.
