So many turkeys, so little time. How about BL’s disastrous 1969 attempt to update the brilliant and cute little Mini with a big modern front end? And they even gave it a special name to go with it. Yes, BL really understood what the Mini was all about. Eventually, the big nose Mini reverted back to its true form. And that unfortunate name has been revived, no less. And just how many new Clubman owners have the faintest idea of where the name came from?
