Actually a bit more than a day late, but by show time, it’s a day late. It’s the new math. News from Motoringfile, shout-outs to you guys (thanks for all the feedback on the last show) and talking to Todd about buying a new car every week. Plus, would you rent your MINI, AirBNB style, to a total stranger? Let us know!
Alex is back! Since illness and other things kept us from making a show last week, you might think that we had a few things to say, and you’d be right. The boys were pretty revved up tonight, and I think it makes for a pretty great show!
Don’t forget, event season is just around the corner. Registration for MINIs on the Dragon and South West MINI Fest closes soon. Don’t forget about Mini Meet West happening in early June as well, in San Diego no less!
With Chad out sick, Alex still adjusting to the cost of living in CA (and waiting for his show gear to arrive via donkey train, I think) and Gabe’s flight running late, Todd and I soldiered on. Talking about some good MINI stuff, like we like to do. We discussed sales, including this about the Clubman, Abby Wambaugh’s DUI and the lame attempts at April Fools. Really? Lambo doors again?
We also take a MINI to remind you about upcoming events and that the cool kids always register! Southwest MINI Fest is in June, registration closes April 30th. MINIs on the Dragon registration closes April 28th and you should already be registered for MINI Takes the States. If not, get on that sooner than later too (listen in for why).
Joined by (Mr. MotoringFile)[http://www.motoringfile.com] tonight, we discuss all things F56, including some new revalations Todd shares about his new JCW. That, plus safety results (awesome!) and Gabe compares the new Clubman to the JCW Roadster. You are going to like this one!
Breaking our silence! There is a very good reason for that as Todd has added a Chili Red JCW F56 to his stable. And I added another bicycle. The bulk of the show is, of course, talking about Todd’s new MINI (also has the JCW Exhaust) and how much Todd is in love with it. He actually confesses that it is faster than the GP. I know, right? Drinking game rules in full effect!
We talk a little bit about the new convertible and how much Gabe is enjoying the Clubman. Oh, and the 4th bicycle, but that’s only for like a minute or two.
Dear fine and good looking fans of White Roof Radio,
We have been doing this for more than 10 years as you already know. I have made the decision for us to take a break. As before, I will be sharing episodes from the Way Back Machine during that time, first one will be coming up tomorrow, then back to Monday night like you are used to.
We appreciate your continued support in all of the ways that you support us.
Now that we have all, mostly, returned to the land of the living, we thought it would be a good idea to do a show. Todd, Chad and I doing what we do. Talking about MINIs and other cars. How about the way manufacturers pad the books to boost their sales numbers? And some talk about the demise of Scion. Oh, and Top Gear. Good stuff this week, we hope you enjoy it.
