so, today was at least 105 degrees, and not always being of sound mind and body, decided to pack up the crew and head out to the LA county fair! did I mention that it was hot?
Anyway, while cruising through the buildings full of vendors selling the latest as seen on tv gadgets and gizmos, I stumble upon someone selling toy cars. Low and behold, they have mini MINI’s, and even a BRG/W! sure, it’s cheesy, not quite right, and when you pull it backwards it rolls forwards, but I still thought it was fairly nifty.
I just added links on the left to download both the real MINI Manual and the Un-authorized version (which is pretty funny)
to get these files, right click on the links and choose save target as. If you use your left mouse button, you will see a Yahoo!/Geocities error page, and not get the benefit of being able to peruse the manuals for your self.
went down to the local putt-putt golf course tonight with my son and we got to ride the gocarts…now, if they could just figure out a way to put a super-charger on a lawnmower engine, it would have been just like a MCS, almost…
three days after I ordered my mine, I still just can’t wait until I can drive it*. but, by my count, I really only have to wait about 112 more days…
*please note the lack of sex designation and name for my MINI. I believe that I won’t really know either until it finally arrives.
I forgot to mention, and this has been cause for grins for the better part of last night and this morning, but I was able to drive an MCS last night after placing my order! I am gonna get into SOO much trouble with that car! I was just motoring along, then I got a section of the dealers ‘loop’ that is a nice little ‘S’, got to fly right by another car, on the OUTSIDE!
Oh yea, and the interior at night looks awesome! like a jet cockpit or something! I hope I can make it until mid-January…
