We picked up our 2009 MINI Cooper Clubman at Orlando MINI this past weekend, after just a four week wait for the special order process. This is going to be an occasional autocrosser and full-time family hauler for the Schroeder family. Our Cooper Clubman wears a paint color called Hot Chocolate, and we added just a few options to the base model: sport seats, sport suspension, multi-function steering wheel and Xenon lights. The grand total was a reasonable $22,850.

We traded in our 2007 MINI Cooper S, a car that served us well for two years. We look forward to slinging this slightly longer MINI around the cones.

This isn't going to be a "real" project car, just one that you'll occasionally see at events.
