The Morris Mini Minor is a car released in HQTM Team's Classic Madness mod. It replaces the standard Mini Cooper Classic, with a more detailed model, based on the more basic Mini platform, and the Ford Mustang Cruiser as London's police vehicle.
HistoryEditThe Mini began life as BMC's Austin Seven and Morris Mini Minor (Austin/Morris 850 in the US) designed by Sir Alec Issigonis in 1959. In 1961, the Seven was rebranded as the Austin Mini (with the Morris Mini following shortly afterwards), and a legend was born. In the same year, BMC started work on the Austin/Morris Mini Cooper (on which the Mini Cooper Classic is based), a performance model that featured a larger engine. In 1963, the Mini Cooper S was developed, a racing version that went on to win many rallies, notably the Monte Carlo rally, which it won a total of 3 times, between 1964 and 1967. In 1969, the Austin and Morris names were dropped, forming the Mini marque. In the 1980's Rover took over the Mini's production from BMC, but it wasn't until 2000 that the car was dropped completely. In 2000, BMW bought the rights to the Mini name and in 2001, started production on the New Mini Cooper and Mini One, which was much larger and spacious than its predecessor in order to keep up with modern competitors. In 2007, this recieved a facelift, before the introduction of the Clubman estate car and Countryman SUV in 2008 and 2010 respectively.

London PoliceEditThe mod also replaces the Ford Mustang Cruiser in the streets of London with a unqiue police variant of the Mini, rather than using a Buick Special Police car. However, this new version is not available for use by the player and is only seen as an AI vehicle, unlike the Buick Special, which is a bonus playable vehicle. Interestingly, in fan-made cities, which would normally use the London variant of the Mustang Cruiser, a Buick Special with the "Forsaken Vale Sheriff" colour scheme is used.
- The Black paint job is a reminiscent of the Mini Cooper Classic, which had a checkered roof and racing stripes painted onto the roof and hood.
