New Mini in Iowa!

Greetings all! I just picked up my new Mini last Friday in St Louis. I figured I had better report in before I got tagged... I know is more a matter of a business card under a wiper, but I have visions of something more like Mutual of Omaha's Wild Kingdom "..and now Jim is going to tag the (drugged-with-multiple-tranquilizer-darts) animal"

Oldsbear - gotta love acronyms. It is not high frequency in this case. I just used the same name as I had on the RX-8 club (easier for me to remember). I had two other meanings in mind: primarily, human factors (my profession) and secondarily, high fidelity (a passion).
 

Last edited by hfguy; 01-09-2008 at 02:46 PM. Reason: oops... forgot the second meaning for HF
