The Junk MINI
I was cruisin’ in my ‘hood, late last night, When my eyes spotted a very weird site, It was a MINI dressed to kill, This thing gave me quite a thrill!

Don’t forget the voicemail contest! Call in your detail horror stories to (206) 33-WHITE. Saturday is the last day to enter!
Todd did the hard part
Updates and changes
While you are waiting for the AMVIV edition to appear (later tonight!), I’m going to take a moment to let you know what’s being planned for the coming months under the White Roof!
I am working on a way to split the feed up so that audio reviews, Robert’s soundseeing tours, audio/video clips and the club shows each show up on their own separate feed. Of course there will be 1 main feed for those of you that want to get everything we produce. The big one here is making sure that you only receive any episode one time.
I’m working on the next event cast already and have planned some changes for it as well. More like additions, so watch for those. Don’t forget to send those events in to email@example.com.
Finally, don’t forget this Saturday is the last day of the voicemail contest! We are looking for those detailing horror stories you might have. Call those in to (206) 33-WHITE by Saturday. Best story wins a MINI Detailing Kit courtesy of Detailing Concepts.
Of course, the voicemail line is more than just for the contest! It is one of the many ways you can send us feedback! (206) 33-WHITE firstname.lastname@example.org Leave a note in the show notes.
Woof46 is on the way. Watch for it later tonight or tomorrow morning on iTunes!
Robert’s Soundseeing Tour #1
Robert and his wife drive from Toronto to Ottawa. Into Kingston, thru the ‘big bend’, making stops and you even learn how they like their coffee!
Woof 46, for real, will be up tomorrow!
Robert did the hard part
Todd and db just spent the weekend in Las Vegas (baby!) checking out the 100′s of MINI’s that were there, cruised the strip and, luckily, did up a show with Michael Babischkin while hanging out under the Webb Motorsports tent.
Watch for something in the next few days, not to mention a full recap next week!
Gabe goes alone while db and Todd are in Vegas. Taking advantage of his aloneness he discusses the Apple Cube, Liquid Yellow MINI’s, the history of the BMW 3 series line and that world famous 3 series 50/50 weight distribution, among other things!
Feedback? Oh yea, you know we want feedback.

Flame Spoke Wheel Review
With db and Todd at AMVIV, and Gabe renovating a bathroom, I thought it was time for something different.
If you’ve heard my in-MINI reports, you know I’m in Toronto, Canada. We get winter here, as evidenced by my Canadian Extreme Donut post somewhere below (near the Woofcast #39 post).
However, we’ve had a change of weather, and I’ve now installed my never-used-because-I-took-delivery-with-snows summer tires and wheels. And the wheels are the Checkmate Edition Flame Spoke specials.
As you can see, they’re nice and shiny. And round. That’s something you notice right away about these special edition wheels. They are round. And they’ve got that cute ‘horseshoe’ thing going for them.
I particularly like how nicely they match up to the rubber itself. That is one nice, tight fit. And you can’t help but notice how nicely the Flame Spokes show off the JCW brakes. That makes the whole thing worthwhile, imho.
Needless to say, you won’t see many of the Flame Spokes around, ’cause you won’t see many Checkmates around. It’s a plot, I know, to artificially inflate the price of used cars, but hey, who am I to complain?
