I’ve started to move some content to wordpress, mostly because I want to consolodate my blogs and thoughts, I’ll continue to cross post stuff because I do love love Tumblr, but without comments I’m kind of at a loss, and I tried to add some things to Tumblr that I couldn’t do. check it out. Hope you like it we will be podcasting soon and I’ll post links of the road trip of the 50th anniversary.
Mike Payne is the guy that restored the Mini into what it is today, his paint work is flat out amazing, and he is a master mechanic restoring aircraft for a small local museum. He is a mechanical surgeon if there ever was one, a master in the wrench and driver clan. Thank you Mike for bringing over this little car that brings smiles to so many.
Went on a drive out highway 112 this weekend playing cat and mouse with a sporty Volvo (not sure if that’s an oxymoron or not) but I could tell he was trying to keep up with me. My savage little car would have none of it. In the twitsys pulling what felt like 2-3g’s we watched the Volvo in the mirrors straining to keep up tires barking and acting all bent out of shape. We weren’t even really trying that hard (I would hate to tell him that)
I tried to stop and talk with the guy to get his thoughts about the Mini, and how a car at least 1/3 of the price of his could perform so much better, but that’s something to save for the podcast….
May 16th through the 20th we’ll be podcasting a road trip, here are the priorities.
1. The Mini’s 50th anniversary
2. White Roof Radio
Beer will probably move around the list depending on where we are. But I’ll be travelling with my best friend Jim, it’s bound to be a hoot, hooters, whatever.
