I've stopped commuting in Betty on a daily basis due to the condition of the roads where they're building C-Station, having already lost one windscreen and gained a pile of stonechips I figure it's better to waste an R53 Bini on that than screw her up in the salt and mud.  

Havin said that, she's all clean and ready to go on display at Goodwood this weekend.

Yesterday I drove my pickup to Denver - technical emissions inspection, sniff test emissions inspections (x3), and weight scale.

I did think about saving you time, and just posting on your behalf as this has been your standard reply since I've known you!

Yes we did. Sunny and 15C today. First drive of the season. Bit of shopping....almost lost the car in the Wal Mart lot ( hold yer comments!!), cup of coffee and snacks and parked at the beach in the sun and enjoyed the scenery here at the 49th parallel..then home and back under the cover. Ran great.,...got lots of admiring looks and felt alive again!!

I have been driving it all week here in NC. Not very exciting trips, to and from the grocery store and my kid's school (where I almost T-bonned somebody at an intersection; she did literally stop in the middle of it),
cheers,

I'll go first. I drove all 4 of my minis today - about 150 miles total. It was fun. They are all so different to each other.
I didn’t get Miniing to day. It will take some amount of wrenching and $$$ before I’m driving mine very
far. But it will......be made to run. Watch for pictures to come ( snowing hard here, so might be a day or
do “ . Let’s see how the others did ? 
Any Mini ( I’m not writing classic mini any more...when we say Mini , it means the classic Mini ). I think this
is generally understood...
