Filthy with MINIs

No kidding. In the last few days I’ve seen at least 20 MINIs! Saw a few HB/W, a couple of PS/B, a DS/W and /B and even a VR/B!

Plus, drove next to Miles for about a block and half today. Oddly enough (or not) he was one of 2 that waved.

The non-wavers are really starting to get annoying. I mean, even the girl driving the VR/B didn’t wave. C’mon! We have the same color, you could have at least looked. Or smiled. Or flipped me off. Whatever, just an acknowledgement would have been nice, ya know?

  1. “unfortunately” they don’t check your enthusiasm before they sell you a MINI. Its still fun to spot MINIs and throw a wave. and even better when the gesture is returned.

  2. Man, don’t even get me started. Sometimes I just want to put “For Sale” signs on cars of the non-wavers. I see about 2-3 MINI a week where I live, so sometimes it’s weeks between waves. I mean, seriously, just the ol’ fingers-off-the-steering-wheel would be good enough for me.

  3. It was a hodgepodge of greeters and non-wavers for me this weekend. Some kid in a PW/B MC on the 605 shined me on. I was behind an Electric Blue that just happened to be getting onto the 22 eastbound when I was. He saw me wave in his rear view and acknowledged. Later, another PW, this one a new S with paper plates from LB MINI waved at me while also eastbound on the 22. Coming home on the 405 I saw quite a few but they seemed to be unfamiliar with their MINI’s velocity capabilities. 8-)

  4. Over here in Greece you wouldn’t be caught dead waving at someone you didn’t know-so I usually give a nod and smile to the other MINI drivers or flash the lights!

  5. Waving was never a question when I had my classic Mini. But ever since I have had my new MINI wavers are few and far between. Maybe they associate too much with the BMW marque? WAVE FOR GOD’s SAKE, IT WON’T KILL YOU!
