Todd, which means Fox in Scottish dialect.  Just be glad you are on the other side of the country from me.
You are a COWARD, hiding behind a screename.  Its highly unlikely we will ever meet, which is good news for you. Ive never punched a Wimp in my life, but I'd make an exception for you.  DILLIGAF ya Bampot!

Have you ever thought about writing Comedy Scripts for TV?  Youve certainly got a vivid imagination.
Fictitious Mini, that nobody except your deluded self ever seen.  How much did this "Mexican" give you?
Any proof?      
Asian?? My arse, you live and work in California, and youre as Asian as myself.
Regarding being emotional...yep, thats what happens when you skip the daily dose of Lithium.
I think i speak for the vast majority of this Mini Forum, when i say you will not be missed.
Unfortunately, being the total arsehole that you are, i think you've already morphed into another alias, or 2.
No prizes for guessing which ones...Chum looks the likeliest at this point. Jury is still out about one in "Canada".  
You were once called out by Dan and Jk for being so rude with your comments then you left for a while and never posted anything again,,,, then now your back with your dirty mouth...i know you're one of those people who wears red checkered miniskirt and long black socks and pointed shoes and a black hat and playing flute on a sunday morning.
I'd rather be riding a scooter naked than wearing a skirt.....omg ,over my dead body,...lol!!!
Hey Slurry Head, Get it right up ye!  Your days are numbered on this Forum. Your credibility is totally shot.

6 inches of snow tonight, but that's no excuse for not being in the mountains in the morning!

Although classic MINIs are still great in the winter, and the heaters work great....it's when it gets a little warmer than -15 and they start salting that is the problem.

MD-IN-UK Try "Change Editor Type" to "Styled". Find this setting just above the text entry box where you typed your post.

Chrome is Google's free browser. If you're not using a Mac, you can still click on the "Drag & Drop" graphic and add your photos(s) the old fashioned way.

If you're using a Mac, this forum no longer supports Safari photo posting as of a few months ago. I switch to Chrome if I have to post a pic.

Of course I did, it remains my sole source of transportation. It likes a little choke on these cool days. Both CV s are starting to clack on tight turns. The HIF 44 is acting up might be a good time to go thought it. Still pulls out onto the interstate and rolls right up to 70 mph at 3000 rpm. If that's not good enough in the past week I have driven one of the nicest Inno MK 3 Coopers I have seen. I have also driven a late mini with the same gear box I run but with a SW 5 which will pull fourth from 1000 rpm without issue. My mini has a Reed Mega Torque regrind which has nothing below 2000 rpm. Today I get to drive a mid 80 s Rallye knock off. 13 s, roll cage, Recaros, 45 DCOE sump guard and lights all over the place. Just completed a clutch job, cam upgrade, rejet and a pile of other things needed. Yes it snowed here in VA. day before yesterday and I drove in the mess. All family cars will get a good cleaning over and under this weekend. Steve (CTR)

Off topic, The rallye car has a KAD quick shift and had worn shift housing. I rebushed the shift housing ( rod type ) and took the KAD apart and made a bushing to loosen the stick. I'm still not a fan of quick shifts but it is better than it was. The issue with changing back from quick shift to std is the missing pins to retain the shifter cup and keep the stick from spinning. It can be fixed but not a plug and play.

It's been raining for the last few days, so no. Rosebud doesn't go out in the rain. It's not so much that the windows leak and fog up, or the windshield wipers don't wipe all that much, or that the puddles are sometimes over the door sill, or the semi-slick tires lack an anti-hydroplane groove. I can live with all that. It's just that I like to keep her clean, shinny and rust-free. I'm a bit OCD that way. Rain is a rare occurrence in SoCal, so it's not a big hardship.

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

What's C-station? High speed train? Something else?
