After crashing Tsiggy (MINI #1) I spent a month in the hospital with a broken neck wondering if I would ever walk again. The wife got a call from the car lot that had this "05 Convertible looking for a home. Since I needed motivation to get well again and since our garage was short one car she ended up signing on for the car ownership. Hence the name: Hermin!
