Once the Mini really did fall apart I traded 'up' to a knackered 1.1 Fiesta which used to conk out as you slowed down once it had warmed up a bit. On my first ever date with my wife (then prospective girlfriend) it packed up at the traffic lights in the middle of town and I had to get her to help me shove it into a side-road where it then decided not to restart for 20 minutes. I'm sure she still doesn't believe me that that was a genuine thing.
