The Chess Board Car?


Not all cars in Monaco are Ferraris or Rollers - here's a Mini (I think) - I'm not quite sure what the squares on the roof are all about though. Looks a bit like something I see on racetracks - or perhaps if the owner gets bored he climbs onto the roof and plays chess?

I'm sure someone will tell me.

This is for you - Gail's Man at Nottingham Daily Photo - who always welcomes car pics on this blog. Sorry it's not from British Motors yesterday - but yes, come to think of it, this is a British car, isn't it?

It's parked outside the Metropole Centre, the owner chatting on the phone - although you can barely see that.

I love this car. (Nice sparkly flares off the window and lights in this photo, too!)

Aren't there flags in car racing that have those checkers?

I think it is a checkerboard car. LOL

Cute little car. I like the chess idea. It has that sparkle like in old toothpaste commercials. Jilly, you inspired my post today. Hope you like the Tune du Jour as well.

Jilly, Laurie and Virginia are right the chess flag is waved on the car that arrive first in a car racing :-)

With Minis you can get all sorts of roof designs including Union Jacks, U.S flag for the N.American customers etc... & yes, it is British though now owned by BMW.

I think it is supposed to be a "racing" Mini. It's cute in any case! And I can see from the plaque that the owners are from the Vaud Canton in Switzerland. That's a pretty long drive to make in such a little car!

I'm never ridden in one of these Minis but it looks adorable with this pattern on top.

Nice mini. However, one might imagine the winged creatures flying overhead being enticed to hit one of those little squares.

Hi Jilly, thanks for the dedication. Alas the Mini has no longer British blood running through it's engine, but as previously mentioned, it has Germanic instead.

Here's a task for you. See if you can find an original one with a Union Jack on it's roof.
