April 1, 2004 – One of the things I really enjoy about my “job” as MiniGuy is when I receive updates about the adventures folks are having with the Minis they have adopted from us, and the pics they often include.
After posting “MiniGuy’s Favorite Mini Memory…” (Feb. 26) ( Click Here to see the pic ), we received an email from Bill F., of Denver, Colorado, and the pic you see here.
The Mini he adopted from us is one that is in that picture – so that Mini will always have a special place in my heart, and we particularly enjoy hearing of Bill’s adventures with it.
Here’s the email he recently sent:
In regards to your “Favorite Mini Memory” posted on 2/26/04.
The little guy is doing fine and I have put 25k miles on him since he arrived in March 2002. Last summer, my dad and I drove the little man to Mini Meet West 2003 (in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada), along with two other Minis driven by members of our Mini club, Minis Of The Rockies (M.O.T.R.). My dad and I picked up my two older brothers in Seattle and drove into Vancouver and had a great time at the Mini Meet. Many members of the Mini community were surprised that we covered as many miles in a Mini that we did with four people inside.
Isn’t the whole point of a Mini that – in addition to being one the best handling cars on Earth – that it can haul four people and their luggage?
Thanks for the update!
By the way, Bill’s Mini has the 998cc, and before he got it he was a little concerned that it might not be up to the task for the mountain roads around Denver – that maybe he should opt for a 1275cc instead. He later told us it’s worked out just fine for him!
