T-shirt (Candian style) here today, but still too much salt water on the roads. Snow banks containing salt and road sand are melting and the melt-water runs across the road, resulting in dirty road spray.

NO Mini driving, but the itch IS growing.

Family Outing!

 Cross the neighborhood for our spring Creek / Stream Cleanup
  Moke served best along the greenway to pickup and bring the trash back to the central location!

60F here in VA. Somehow the mini sounds even sweeter at this temp. Got a low five from a  motorcyclist coming the other way on a twisty two lane road. A very common occurrence only when driving the mini.  They appreciate the size.

I drove the Moke around a bit today - also nice weather and fun to do in Dec!  I try to get out once a month.

Yes, did drive the Mini today on 24th December. Living in a snow area where I do not drive for Ice Cream but for " GL√úHWEIN", hot red wine with spices. Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year from Austria.

Greetings from the Austrian Mountains to all classic car lovers

Went to Eats and Treats for Ice Cream.  Got more attention then the death star lexus SUV next to me.  Last week's fixes seem to have eliminated two bad noises and the water temp is behaving...... Bennett's and Apple Fritters tomorrow....

Drove the Moke about 450 miles at the CMU event and just did another 400 plus miles at the Moken around Florida event.

YESSSSSS!!!!
Okay, it was only around town doing errands, but it is a perfect fall day, 17 deg.C clear blue sky and light traffic.
BONUS: it was mild enough today I was able to wash the Mini, which was dusty from home renovations.

Congrats on the Mini. Glad you found me. Drop me an email (address is in profile).

And yes, I drove a Mini today. It was the truck's turn.
