Barry in West Virginia says Hello!

We have some beautiful mountains and roads here. We are really looking forward to the fall leaves and motoring in our R52 (2005 Cooper S Convertible). It's the six speed and has about 52000 miles on it. We bought it from some great people who took great care of it.

Cheers,
Barry

barry304's 2005 R52. 6 speed. No modifications. Fun in a box!


Sorry for the delay. We are a busy family like so many. We live in Charleston. As far as I know, the car has no modifications. I'll be honest, after reading some information about common problems, I was cautious about the purchase. I did some research and have a friend with a shop and is very familiar with European makes so I'm looking forward to many years of fun. It's the spare car which we are likely only to drive on nice days.


I am not Barry the publisher ZippyNH. I'm have a small insurance and financial services shop here in Charleston.


I'll attach a photo of our new toy. We really enjoy the car.

Good-looking car!
Lived in WV for about 6 years...know it well, and still have friends down your way from then...a couple based from the c-130 squadron over at the airport.
Lots of GREAT roads for a MINI in your neck if the woods!! Enjoy!

I've been a West Virginian since birth. We have much work to do here. Too many years depending on extraction industries.

My office is at the corner of Greenbrier Street and Rutledge Road where Coonskin Drive peels off and takes you to the 130th entrance. Where I live now is on the flight path when they practice. I still wave at them when they pass over.

Take care,
Barry
