It was a Mini invasion on Sunday March 24, the last day of the 2019 Vancouver International Auto Show (VIAS), when 23 classic Minis and 3 BMW Mini Coopers filled the Jack Poole Olympic Plaza to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the iconic and most celebrated British car.
Mini 60 Drive-Up event began at Vanier Park and then proceeded in convoy down Burrard street to the Plaza, creating quite a sight for many bypassers. The display drew large crowds all day, with many enthusiasts sharing their Mini stories—from racing to personal experiences back in the day.
The one-day event was sponsored by the VIAS, Mini Club BC and Western Driver’s Vancouver ABFM
