Re: Coopers and Coffee 2019, Thirteenth Annual, Sunday, October 13th

On my calendar unless work schedule intervenes. This year I'm likely to bring the '06 JCW as the P'up needs to undergo some heavy maintenance and likely down for the fall/winter. (I haven't posted anything here in a while and just noticed that my signature photo has a Photobucket water mark--Bastard...

Re: Sonic Cruise-In, Thursday May 30th KC Northland w/KC Small Car Club

I plan to be there, but which car and or with ChiliDog as co-pilot is still in the works. Might be fun to cross-pollinate some of my vintage, analog British Leyland steel with the carbon fiber MINI youngsters out there in the club. Visions of chomping tater tots and sharing the joy of having a secre...

Re: Sonic Cruise-In, KC North Thursday, June 21st, 6:30 PM

I'm planning on attending.
1 person and can't decide on MINI or mini. If 94F, I think AC in rush hour traffic getting up North sounds better than classic sweat.

Is it too late to count me in?
I'll plan to do the drive, but if dinner headcount is already capped, no biggy.
If there's still room in the Mexi restaurant, pls add 1.

Re: Wheel Opinions

I think you need both! Toy cars need accessories to fit the mood of the day (or season, or event).
As for color preference, I like gold better.

Great find on the news clips. I can't imagine topping 100mph on that course. Yikes! We had great weather today, which made for a really nice outing. It's great to get the classics out of winter dormancy and back on the roads. We turned enough heads in Garnett while fueling and eating lunch--one woul...

Will they be available for purchase by all, or was there a sign up and limited quantity produced? I'd love to have a few.

Re: Tires, Tyres, Tars

I'll chime in on track days... I miss the first few years of track days when it cost about $60, a tank of gas and half a day w/3 groupings. Nowadays, it costs 2x, an entire day, and no more track time due to extra classes. It has been fun, though, to experience the entire track, vs the shorter cours...

Re: MINI Max has a New Little Brother, Buzz

If you remove too many of the rattles and other noise makers, Buzz might have to be renamed Purr. You could give him a proper last name, like Pudwell from Yorkshire. I still can't get over the fact that your car came with a notebook full of maintenance records and proper UK registration docs spannin...

I've officially requested clear, spring weather--yet to hear back from the office of procurement, though. The wagon wheel motel is fun because it's nostalgic and next to decent BBQ! The drive there is pretty fun--how often do you get to caravan down the highway with a gaggle of minis? Speaking of mu...
