The Essential Book of Cars Based on the Original Mini
Focuses on the cars derived from the classic Mini. This book describes, and provides research of almost 60 cars along with photographs, from the well known Mini Marcos and Unipower GT that even raced at Le Mans, to the very obscure but at least as exciting Coldwell GT or Sarcon Scarab.
After a career as a road test editor for a Dutch motoring magazine, Jeroen Booij decided to become a freelance motoring journalist. He prefers describing the weird and wonderful of the automotive industry, specializing in classic, specialist, or simply unusual cars, which has often led to full features on vehicles that are hardly taken seriously by the regular press. With a passion for Minis, it was a logical step to write a book about all of the cars that derived from it, which Jeroen spent nearly five years researching. He lives in Amsterdam with girlfriend, Annette, and daughter, Violette.
