Check out this custom, two-seat Mini Cooper, built as a promotional vehicle for Red Bull, sent by a reader in Vancouver, B.C. The mounted canister either provides storage for samples, or is a 300mm cannon, built for firing cans of Red Bull like buckshot into downtown office windows. Still, how cool would a semi-convertible version of the Mini be — ala Suzuki Samurai. If you see any of these promotional vehicles on the street, whip out the digicam and send the photos to We'll post them — not to give extra publicity to the companies they promote, but to critique their efforts. This one's an A. [Thanks, Dana.]
