The ultimate accolade!
I received a message of thanks today from Steve Barnatt, organizer of MINIs On Top – complete with business card!
Here is a Christmas collection of pictures including a decorative star in our house (which Bridgette loves to sit by and keep warm from all the bulbs in it), and more outside; and our Christmas tree:
Also many pictures of decorated houses around the area – I drove about to take lots of pics:
And here is Main Street in Gloucester, and the Gloucester Lobster Trap Tree, erected each year by Jeff Worthley with support from the Cape Ann Chamber of Commerce – some years I help too …
And finally, cool pictures of cool weather causing fog above the snow:
This site has moved – thanks to three years of free hosting from 1&1!
Please update your bookmarks; thank you
“The MINIs, they are a changin …” (Sorry Bob Dylan!)
Recent news on the MINI2 site and on Gabe Bridgers site talks about changes to the MINI which will be coming some time next year.
Apparently the front and rear exterior will receive some changes, including this nice looking chrome bar on the front:
(thanks to MINI2 / Paul Mullet for making these pictures available)
I finally got around to putting my “www.MINI2.com” sticker on the back window of GBMINI today … I put it up as high as possible to minimize the chance of it affecting the rear view – pretty happy with the results:
You can buy these stickers from MINI2 for less than $3; be warned however that I had to place three orders before I got mine – it seems that the English postal service does not want to ship MINI2 stickers to me!
I received the first issue of go mini, a new British publication dedicated to the new MINI. It has a number of interesting articles, including modified MINIs, an interview with the famous (in England) Jeremy Clarkson, and a look at some seriously upgraded MINIs produced to promote audio/video products made by Pioneer – these pics are from the article “in the boot is our biggest subwoofer … 5000W … four amps running it! It’s very heavy and we had to uprate the suspension”
Until a US-based MINI-specific magazine appears, Go here to order a subscription to this magazine; the price is a reasonable £35 ($50-$60) for one year (six issues).
