My sole personal aim in preparing for MMW is to get the 1961 Austin Se7en Countryman (Registered in B.C. as a Modified Collector Vehicle in Restoration) to Victoria on June 29th to debut at Mini Meet West.

After a regrettably long delay, the shell went to RWM Maynard & Co. for the last of the bodywork & paint...with some assembly to follow there.  Sadly, the shop where it was in the mid-Fraser Valley got into trouble and I had the recover it and various parts.

Snowing here today with 6 or more days of rain to follow.  When I looked at the weather yesterday a.m. - clearing, drying, breezy -  I put the move into gear.  Safely completed and in the RWM shop by 7 last night.



Newton Commercial emailed yesterday, DHL has the full interior kit moving too.  And so much more, the built power unit, wheels, tires, glass, rubber, wiring harness, headlining & frames and many other bits have been ready on the shelves since 2016.

So, it is pitter patter got to get atter!

Who else is going to bring a 'new' Classic Mini to Victoria?

Ok. Decision made on which car to bring. After a 17 year gap, the "S" will return to Victoria. If I bring a second car, it will be between the pickup and the 

Wolseley. 

You’re in for a great stay.

Thanks for booking direct, Peter.

Andy, it was great bumping into you. I also ran into several other people from the US at IMM, as well as at the MINI plant in Cowley.  Looking forward to seeing everyone next year at MMW2020 in Victoria.  Mike

Hello Mike!

It was a great pleasure running into you at Beaulieu, the "National Motor Museum" earlier this month (before IMM Bristol) and having lunch there.  It is such a small world for Mini folks sometimes, no?    See you next year in Victoria!l

Peter, if you plan on avoiding freeway driving I have a great route and motel recommendations that I used on my trip back from East meets West.

I've just sent my Kilt to the cleaners and I'll rescue my Sporran from  the SPCA. We are planning on being there again. Great fun last time in  Abby.

Alberta should have bought BC when they had their gazillions in the Trust Fund. Now we're unaffordable. Mostly because of the Albertan's moving to god's country and driving up prices. We'll be at MMW 2020 with the '67 Moke! Should be able to drive it that far on it's 850cc's if we stick to logging roads.

 

Cool
