Great piece for those who enjoy the proper usage of marquee nomenclature:

>Try as I might to like the new Mini Clubman, I can’t. Because of the name. Any aficionado of Alec Issigonis’s iconic Mini Minor knows that the long-wheelbase shooting brake (estate to the plebians) model was labeled the Countryman (in Austin Seven guise) and Traveller (in Morris Mini form). And they had wood trim! BMW even admitted as much – the original concept LWB Mini was called ‘Traveller.’
