Could be a few different secrets... Perhaps you're old (from "back in the day"), you were a bus driver, you have an overwhelming need for precision, or you're an old, precise bus driver with a medical condition. I'm voting for the last, just so I can see your uniform. Hopefully it smells faintly of mothballs.

Do you have one of those neat caps, too? The ones with the shiny brim, a la the Maytag Man? :smile:

There are some more pics here:

http://www.superawesome.net/modules.php?name=gallery

you'll have to fish around that link a little, but go to mowog autocrosses, then 2004, then mowog 7 or something like that.

There are a bunch of awesome pics of Zak there, but I don't think any of me. Oh well.

The MINIs looked good! The one with the SSRs looks goooood. And of course Zak's too!

So is it a fashion statement to have your tow thing in up front? :smile: Or are you asking someone to pull your finger?!

I saw him last year and he actually did pretty well for such a large car.
Of course, I think the screaming sirens helped speed him up!

The tow thingy in the front is a thing that the guys from michigan do to symbolize their status in the club. By the way I'm not OLD in ANY Way, I am 18 years old and happen to be good at what I do with my Mini. Since we are now apart of MMS, we could start our own thingy, like the towhook. and yes people do pull my finger especially the honda's, Acura's. and the liking.. hmmmm...... I do many other things in the Mini that I'm good at.

Awesome to see the group setup on NAM! I'm a newbie in the Winona area. I'm gonna try to make it to the Auto-X on the 10th just to watch. Should be cool.

I'm heading down to the Dragon in May, currently in the planning stages of the whole whirlwind trip to Savannah, GA and back.

Nice to meet 'cha all!

Don't go just to watch, you'll regret it Go and enter. Everyone that goes and watches is always, every single time, like, "dang, I wish I would have entered".

Go for it

I'm new to the Mini, and I live in Mankato and am wondering if there's a local Mini Cooper Club/group? I've heard of Minnesota United Minis or M.U.M. but haven't as yet attended any get togethers. Of course, it's still the middle of winter, and I've only owned my MCS for about two weeks, but it's never to early to look for a club.

M.U.M. is a great group. Look for us on facebook.
