MINI Motorby In Action, Happy B-Day

Today marks the day that I took delivery of my new 2005 MCSa, just two short years ago. It just so happened that I also received my MINI Motorby keychain. So I went for a short drive to the MINI billboard, which was located surprisingly close and in a bunny infested manufacturing district. As soon as I turned the corner, there was my name, with two different phases; "Keeping it Loose, Daniel" and "Turns Are Made to be Carved, Daniel." How cool is that. Not sure if there are other phrases but those were the only two that were cycling for about ten minutes. I'll drive by later to see if there are any phrases, perhaps some more that reference those questions I answered when I signed up. Either way, very cool! and Happy Birthday to my MINI. Two years young and still truckin'!


Spotted My First R56

So on this Easter Sunday, I spotted my first R56 on the road. A liquid yellow MCS driven by an Asian woman. I gave her a wave but did not get the favor returned. I spotted the chrome side marker from a good distance so I knew it was the 2nd generation model.
