I know "The Luggage". It was owned by the late Rocky Frisco, who was a keyboardist for some very high profile bands.  He lived in Tulsa.  I'll try to find his webpage here in a few.  I met the new owner last year at a Harbor Freight but never went and looked at the car.

If you read through you'll find mini and car things he was into.  I don't remember if it was on that page or another where he was interviewed about music but started talking about his mini.

Hey, I remember Rocky.  We met on another Mini forum (I donít even remember which one) about 20 years ago.  At one point I found out he was playing at an outdoor gig in San Marcos and I drove my Mini wagon up to meet him.  We discussed Minis out in the parking lot between sets.  He was a nice guy.

Bummer than "The Luggage" has fallen from it's earlier condition.  Man, Rocky ran with some top flight musicians.  Dan, what is it with Minis and Tulsa?

I had talked with him a time or two over the years.  Hugh Cannon was friends with him so I forwarded this link.  What he told me was this was the original luggage and the new/rebodied luggage is in storage with a bad engine.

Probably need to ask Hugh about that one.

Compared to most cars, especially from the 60s and 70s, our cars are about the size of the luggage you could carry in one.

Wild guess.

The name The Luggage comes from a series of novels that Rocky was a huge fan of.   I never read them, but the author was Terry Pratchett and from my limited knowledge heís sort of a cult hero among some people.
