Our new home has a two car garage - but a very tight fit. It was necessary for us to trade one of our bigger cars in and buy something smaller. I don't usually get too excited about a car. My husband has always been the one to research a new car for us. The Cooper Mini was my choice. The model I chose is a little longer than the Mini Cooper. It has a third door making access to the backseat easier. I needed something with a big enough area in the back to accommodate the shipping tubes I use for my artwork. I love it!
