MTTS Day 4: Day 2 & 3 Wrap Up
Todd and I are joined by WRR Intern Alex Sitbon in the F56 today as we drove on The Million Dollar Highway from Grand Junction, Colorado to ABQ, New Mexico as we wrap up the last couple of days from MINI Takes the States 2014. We let Alex talk about the JCW Coupe he drove today as well as more about the F56.
Tonight we are at Sandia MINI in New Mexico, tomorrow we are east bound and down to Lubbock, Texas! If you are here, come find us and say hi!
#mtts2014: Day 1 Wrap-Up
Day 1 of #mtts2014 is complete! We had the chance to talk to Caryn Grun and our old pal Vinnie at the launch event from Golden Gate Fields in San Fransisco. Also, a quick update about the start from Reno and we drive across the Nevada desert, including some initial thoughts about the F56 now that I’ve had 400 miles behind the wheel.
Stay tuned! Lots more from WRR to come!
Hello from MTTS2014: Day 1
HELLO FROM MTTS!
Day one is now behind us and it’s been an epic day! We’re told that there were 1,400 MINI enthusiasts gathered at Golden Gate Fields this morning driving over 750 MINIs! Last night Todd and I attended the kick-off party at MINI of San Francisco, which was amazing! We walked around and talked to a few people that were there, listen in below.
Last show before #mtts2014 starts this coming Saturday and we are excited! First we have to do news from MotoringFile.com, I provide an update with the broken things on my MINI and the car we will be driving for the next 2 weeks. Sound off in the comments if you have already built your Lego Mini! High five if you got it as a gift and didn’t have to pay ONE HUNDRED DOLLARS for it. Good grief.
For after MTTS, I’m thinking about starting a pool for when Roxy hits 300K miles. I think I can narrow it down to a 2 week period. Any takers?
Don’t forget to come find us this weekend in San Fransisco! MINI Takes the States 2014 is ON. East bound and down baby.
Recorded live last week and it actually worked! For those of you that missed it, the link will sort you out, or listen along at home! We are getting really excited for MTTS and have some great updates for that, cover news from MotoringFile.com and talk about Mazda’s again.
If you missed ordering your MTTS badges and door magnets, tomorrow is the last day! Get over to page 10 without delay!
MTTS excitement is really starting to set in. Todd and I are booked the whole way and are getting excited about driving an F56 from San Fransisco to Boston. We also speculate about what MINIs we might see during the event, and dream about riding on a trailer. Finally, get your MTTS Decals and badges over at page 10 of motoringbadges.com, including the limited edition badge while supplies last.
From there, news from MotoringFile.com. We talk about the new JCW body kit and MINI Sales and the 5 door and I rant, slightly, about automotive journalist writing styles. Comments are open, let us know your thoughts about anything we talked about!
Starting off with a PSA from the boys under the White Roof before we move on to talking about pants, like we like to do. Then some sunroof/sunscreen talk before jumping into news from MotoringFile.com, including Gabe’s review of the F56 Cooper. He used the word smitten so you have to read it.
2 epic things are happening in less than 30 days time, at the same time. #mtts2014 and White Roof Radio celebrates our 9th anniversary. That’s right, 9 years of White Roof Radio and we will be celebrating in Austin Texas on August 1st! Hope to see you all there!
