Next week, the fine state of Nebraska finally gets their very own MINI Cooper dealer!

>Pop-art colors stand out against matte-black at the new Markel Mini Cooper dealership. The colors correspond to the bright, toylike cars that will be displayed inside and around the building.

>The color scheme of the building that once housed Markel’s BMW dealership takes some getting used to, said owner Tim Markel. The colors were chosen by Mini Cooper’s design team as part of an all-new look for the British manufacturer’s U.S. dealerships.

I know this one has been a long time coming and should provide some relief to those of you in the area that have been visiting the dealer in Kansas City.
