Coupe, Coopster, Concept or whatever you want to call, we spend a bit more talking about it tonight, along with a few of the other stories from MotoringFile, including more on the diesel MINI possibility coming to the US in the form of the R60.
If you missed our take on the new concept last week, you can find it here or in iTunes. Great insight from Todd and Gabe especially, worth the listen.
Finishing off with Todd at the Balduchi Winery, including getting a chance to talk to a guy that drove his MINI from St. Louis to Alaska! Watch for WRR at more events in the future as well, including a very very strong possibility of us going to the Dragon in ’10!
You might have heard about Jack Belcher already in the SCMM Newsletter I posted earlier in the week. If you want to see the photos, I posted them over at dbmini.us last week. Listen past the end of the show for a short interview with did with him during one of the AMVIVs.
All of the other links mentioned during the show can be found over there on the right, including a link to the Official MINI YouTube Channel. Thanks to Dean from Indiana for calling into the Voicemail line at 206.202.3252. Keep those calls coming gang, especially if you want us to answer your question in the next Ask Chad segment!
Finally, go buy a badge, especially the 300 to 300k Badge. If y’all buy enough of them, if we do cover the Dragon next year, I would really like to try to drive in my MINI!
Extra Extra, Read all about it!
To help celebrate 4 years of the Woofcast, SCMM, one of the largest MINI Cooper Clubs in the nation, has published an article about us in their latest newsletter.
If you are in Southern California, this is the only club to join. Great events, great people and always a good time. I should know, I’m member number one!

You have been hearing us talk about this video for a few weeks now. Ok, beating Micheal and Chad up about this video might be more like it.
WRR Special: The MINI Coopster
Todd, Gabe and I had the chance to get together Wednesday and give our thoughts about the the MINI Coupé Concept. Yes, we will be calling it the Coopster. Jump on board.
And, happy 50th birthday to the MINI!
Comments are open. Let us know what you think.
WRR Special: The MINI Coopster
I’m not sure about you out there in the listening audience, but I think we’ve been stringing together some great shows lately, this one is no exception.
Of course we do news from MotoringFile. Some great discussions about the upcoming coupe and R60 and just MINI stuff in general.
Tonight is also the world premier of our brand new segment called Ask Chad. That’s right, our own Chad Miller from Detroit Tuned is now taking questions about modding, repairs or anything else you can think of, and answering them during the show. We start with three great questions tonight, followed by 3 great answers. One of the answers included the Sprint Booster. You can find more information about it here.
We also decided to barge in on our sister station over at the Bimmercast. Gabe and Michael talked MINIs and F1 with us for a few minutes before we caught the internet on fire. If you missed it, the Bimmercast has a new iTunes link. Subscribe here.
Also new this week are brand new designs at Motoringbadges.com including the 300 to 300k badges we talked about and all the hot new badges for the ladies!
Finally, want Chad to answer your question? Send it over to email@example.com or phone it in the voicemail line.
Tune in for this episode as we pick on Michael for getting a VW, but then apologize before we, again, pick on him for getting a VW. Plus news of the week from MotoringFile.com. Then, we pick on Micheal some more about getting a VW. Good times ahead as it looks like he’ll be without MINI for a while. Be gentle on him.
If you are here reading these words, follow some of the links on the right to follow along with WRR, Todd, Gabe, Michael and myself anyway you can imagine. Also, if you click that big iTunes link at the top of the page, that is the best way to get the show, delivered to your desktop automatically when it’s released.
Tune in to episode 303 for the first edition of Ask Chad. If you want to send questions in to Chad Miller of Detroit Tuned fame, you can by emailing them to askchad(at)whiteroofradio.com. We plan to do this at least twice a month, depending on how many questions the Chadmeister gets.

We mentioned this during Woofcast 298 and it was brought to my attention that I didn’t link up the videos that we talked about.
