howdy,y'all

New here but have been lurking for a time.

My wife and i ordered our mini cooper in plain vanilla,with just a few sprinkles-(ie: a blank canvas ) last summer and she arrived at nw mini in late august. slowly she's been developing her own look and personality.

Way, way, back in the jurassic, I was involved in a lot of motorsports activities from karts to sports cars but these days I mostly putter around, just squaring-off turns and annoying my neighbors with blatty,ratty engine noises and "wound tight-as-a mickey-mouse-watch" revs.

I used to be fairly active in the puget sound miata club until it grew too large and less personal. 'still have the miata, a red 95 R pkg with less than 30K miles on her after nearly 17 years. she and the mini make a nice pair in the garage.

anywhoo... Here's a pic of my/our baby and looking forward to meeting y'all.You seem a great group with a common love affair goin'.
best regards,
ken
sumner,wa.

Welcome Peppermill

I saw your garage this morning, but had to go to work, so I didn't respond. We want to welcome you and I wanted to say that you have a nice looking ride. I just traded my 2011 MCS (Chili Red) on my new 2012 Roadster (Chili Red) and only had 9500 miles. Any way, I hope to meet you soon at one of our events.

Thanks all for the warm welcome.
I don't think I can make the quarterly meeting but looking over the schedule, I'm pretty sure that I can mange the BBQ at wildwood park and no way can I miss out on the pnw historics. Scenic drives or any excuse for eating is right up there in my book, too.

kulmini-as for that "vision" thing, when my baby first arrived at the dealership, all stark nekkid in white and chrome, I have to admit to being more than a little concerned. I definately knew in my mind that I would go for a full-on retro-brit theme but it sure was easier to imagine the final look mentally or in mock-ups on printer paper than in that initial unadorned state. I'm pretty pleased with how she's come out now tho.

best,
Ken

here's the "before"-
