MINI sightings in Nebraska

If you are motoring the great state of Nebraska and sight a MINI that is from Nebraska or otherwise say... I don't know Hawaii. Post here and give the car and the owner some press.

Yesterday I met Feedback here in Minden of all places. He had his MINI shipped from the islands to drive to Maryland. He took part in MTTS and was just motoring the backroads. You can see some more information here.

Pete was funny when I asked him if it was a long drive. He said something to the effect of ...just got a real good running start before I left. (make hand motion as if jumping off a ramp)

Only MINI owners would find it perfectly natural to be siiting in your car, in the middle of an empty parking lot, in the middle of the country, 3664 miles (5896 km) (3184 nautical miles) from home and have someone turn off the street, drive up to the car, get out walk over and introduce themself...

It was a pleasure to meet you.... if only you had some pull and could have gotten them to open the museum for a couple of hours.

I'm amazed at how far you have to travel for a dealer! Next time its your turn to drive!

Twist my arm

I am retired military so a space available flight to Hawaii is not out of the question. However, I don't think Trogdor is much for air drops.

On my way home from the Lincoln British Car Show. I was on I-80 headed West saw a white Classic on a trailer. And two MINIs one BRG and the next was PS/BK with bonnet stripes. I was pulling the Dragon Wagon today so if you missed me you were probably blinded.

GP1094 was stalked by the kernel Saturday night on West Dodge and 90th area. Came out after a great meal at Brazen Head and had to rub my eyes as a GP crossed my path on my way to Trogdor. That's good luck right?

Had a chance to meet Don from Sutton on Sunday as he was out motoring and decided to stop by MINiDEN to see if I was around. He and his wife were just out for a good Sunday (top down) drive in Nebraska. Great to see both of you. Really liked the fact that we got the question....What kind of cars are those as we were having our MINI conversation.

Saw Susan from Overton on her way to work today BRG/vert (great smile)
Also, that silk green one in Kearney was all over the place today.

I was in Bellevue/Omaha this last weekend. On Sunday I spotted a PS/B MCS in the Northrop-Grumman parking lot, then on Monday it was in a different spot with a blue MINI parked nearby.
I went by Markel, what a great dealership! Visually stunning, well laid out, and the people were extremely nice.

Good to see you got a bit of a MINI fix while you were here. Glad you got a chance to stop by and see the "BLACK BOX" at least thats what I call it now. MINI always gives you something good in a black box.
Agro, you are always welcome in CORN country. I am seriously thinking Vegas next year. So if I don't see you at Thanksgiving or Christmas maybe then.

There's also a red-and-white Cooper in the same lot. Sometimes they get base visitors (Mini's are more common at Offutt, particularly among officers) and then there's 4 or 5 on the lot.

I agree that the new dealership is nice, for many reasons (a shorter drive is certainly one of them). Service writer "Kim" has been nothing but polite and helpful.

I saw a classic.....It was beautiful.....It was a Red/white roof, with meatball stickers that I think had #45 on it. And it was a right hand drive. it didn't look like it had plates on it but rather euro plates in yellow. I saw it on "O" Street in Lincoln near 66th Street at about 12:15 on Tuesday the 4th. There was a older gentleman driving it. I really wanted to follow it but I was going the wrong way. But It was awesome looking. Anybody know whos classic that is?

Stopped at the dealer today after karting. Talked to some great people from South Dakota that got caught by the MINI virus and before they knew it were leaving with a new Cooper for their daughter.
I think she was happy....Judge for yourself

Boy that Oxygen Blue looks different under that light, however I kind of wish it had that hue to it.

Even though both of us are technically from Iowa, I played tagged with a lowered, Pepper White MCS on the 480 bridge and then onto 75 North...turned left on to Sorenson Parkway.

Lets see.....
Yesterday, gave up my spot at Village Pointe to a BRG/Checker roof (you're welcome) Then on the way home two of the Red Bull MINIs East of Lincoln Headed toward Omaha. Further down I-80 a LY/Vert headed East as well. Finally, a CB/WH headed East. Great to see that many MINIs on I-80.

It's not in Nebraska, but I just got back from 2 weeks in Hawaii. I wish I could have gotten a picture of it (it was the only time I didn't have my camera with me) but got to see a MINI with a surf board mounted on the roof. That was a sight with the board being longer than the car.

Lol, saw one (or more) of those a few times when leaving work, scuttling down 13th by the Qwest center. I actually even waved a couple of times.

Btw, a semi-sad meeting of almost twins a week ago. Had my car in for an oil leak, and Mike the SA thought he had double vision, as he had just took in another hot orange/blue top cabrio. I walked up to the repair shop to talk to the mechanic, and almost ended up in the wrong bay... I corrected myself as soon as I saw that (a) the other car didn't have 5k miles of dirt on it and (b)had nicer wheels at the very least.

So a quick wave to what must be about the only other one like mine in town (there's also a black topped S, I know).

That HO/blue combo is rare! unless you are in Denver where that is somewhat of a Bronco fan color combo. Still like it a lot.

Lol, I'll keep that in mind if I decide to sell. I must say, I was not very fond of the combo at first, I was torn between this one and a brg mcs. I really, really wanted a cabrio though, and as much as it pained me, I chose this one. The colors are growing on me though, and the wife really loves it... makes for a good conversation starter with strangers anyways.
