Gina Koutros from MINIUSA took time away from getting ready for the New York Auto Show to give us some more detail on MINI Takes the States 2008!
We find out the reasoning behind selection Miami, Boston, Chicago and LA for this years event. Plus a sneak peak into the reasoning behind separate weekends. For those of you that missed it, there was a poll conducted late last year as to what type of event owners would like to see, and the four regional events won hands down!
Again, those dates for those of you that haven’t put it into your calendars yet.
– Miami: June 13-15
– Boston: June 20-22
– Chicago: July 25-27
– Los Angeles: August 1-3
Everyone is invited, even if they don’t own a MINI! Of course, there will be something special going on for owners only as well. Registration should be open around the 2nd week of April. Don’t worry, we’ll be sure to let you know when as soon as we know!
Keep an eye (and ear) out here and Motoringfile for all the news and updates about MINI Takes the States 2008. No need to look anywhere else!

Caught in the recent rains in New Zealand is this lonely, Liquid Yellow MINI, desperately doing the dog paddle to get back to shore.
Now we know Gabe isn’t a fan of LY, but even that tough Chicagoan will feel sorry for this little guy!
The MINI Vaughan West (Toronto) launch party on March 31 that I mentioned in an earlier post just got a lot better! Believe it or not, if you mention WhiteRoofRadio to Motoring Advisor Cosmo this Saturday you’ll get $500 off a new MINI. Special for WRR fans only!
(FYI – you have to tell him before you negotiate your purchase price that you’re a WRR listener).
This dealer is fantastic! They even created a special MINI Canada-like themed e-vite. Check it out at http://www.minivaughanwest.ca/2007mini
6 test drive MINIs are going to be available, so everyone will get time behind the wheel. And I’ll bet the co-pilots won’t be slouches, either!
This will be a real launch party, not some dumb champagne swilling affair, but a real driving experience. See you there.
If you’re in the Toronto area, one of our 4 or 5 local dealers (yep, we have that many) is hosting their New MINI Launch Party on March 31.

I know you’re probably not in this ‘hood, but I wanted to share the invite with you. Very cool graphic.
Maybe I’ll see you there. You’ll know me – I’ll be the guy with the WRR fake media badge!
I’ve mentioned that Toronto is littered with new MINI billboards, but this one tops them all.
The sentiment is right on, and the poster is seen by thousands of commuters every day. The apartment building that hosts this poster is at the intersection of two major highways that cut through Toronto.
The building is often used to announce movies. Spiderman has adorned it numerous times. But not now. Spidey has left the building!
Caught in the act. Members of the Southern Ontario MINI Club out on a Sunday stroll, pulled over for driving too slow!
Yep – true. And it doesn’t snow in Canada, eh?
Happy New Year, and Very Happy Motoring.
Now this is something you won’t see in your home town, but in Beijing they’re driving real stretch MINIs. This is not your Clubman or your Traveller, that’s for sure.
Check this baby out. How ’bout the bath tub option?
