On tonight’s episode, db tries to make an echo, MINI factory runs out of paint, Todd drives a MINI with the autopark feature and Chad answers questions. And T-Shirts! For the record, my new favorite size is AWESOME! Of course we do news from MotoringFile.com. Also check out Bigblogg on Facebook for the Thunder Gray/White MINI we were talking about.
From the dept. of corrections, Todd mentioned the issues with having to spend $1,000 to get the back-up camera. There is a memo and the Configurator will be updated in short time most likely. As always, check with your dealer for more details.
If you are looking for #mtts2014 badges, MotoringBadges is the place. Including the 17″ door magnet. If you want the big magnet, order soon! Cut off will be about July 15th if you want it before MTTS. If you would like to help support White Roof Radio, you can click over to our Patreon page.

Kicking off with talk about plastic surgery among other things. But the time we actually get into the room where we talk about MINI stuff like we like to do, some words about how you can help support White Roof Radio over at patreon.com/whiteroofradio. After that, it’s news from MotoringFile.com among other things.
More notes to follow.
Last week, it was the SuperLaggera. This week we are all about the 5-door, Lego and fish sandwiches. Before all of that, we do start with a little Shuttlecast since the Mac Developer Conference was last week. But after that, we get right to #mtts2014 and news from MotoringFile.com.
You heard correctly, during MTTS, it will be “Mornings with White Roof Radio” all the way from San Fransisco to Boston. If you are interested in being part of the WRR Road crew, there is still an opening or two available, even if you aren’t going all the way. We would love to have you part of the team! Email us if you are interested.
Finally, for those of you that have been asking to help support us, now you can!.
Support White Roof Radio
On August 1st, 2014, White Roof Radio will be celebrating our 9th anniversary. And it’s time time to kick things up a few notches!
You guys have been offering to help out for as long as I can remember, now here it your chance. We aren’t charging for the show (will be free forever!), just giving you a chance to help support what we do. By support, I mean provide the ability to grow the show through advertising and getting word to the dealer network. Give us the ability to cover more MINI events like MINIs on the Dragon, MINIs in the Mountains and other National MINI events that we don’t get to cover.
Patreon will help you to help us! It’s easy to set up, you can set a maximum budget and stop contributing at any time. You don’t even have to contribute! White Roof Radio will remain free as long as we do the show. This of this more as an on-going Kickstarter-type program.
Ready to start? patreon.com/whiteroofradio to get started. And, thanks!
MINIs, ’53 Vette’s and fanny packs. All that and so much more for you this week under the White Roof! Also, always remember gang, safety first. Seriously, we are all about the Superleggera this week. We dig it as much as you do, join us to find out how much!
F56 vs. Fiat Abarth
Watch as the MINI handily trounces the Fiat in both the 1/4 mile and full mile.
Starting off with some classic comedy talk, Foster Brooks and George Carlin’s Class Clown. Very not safe for work, very very funny stuff. Once we get passed that, it’s Todd, Chad, Nathaniel and I talking about MINI Coopers, like we like to do. Including the Playboy MINI. And this Scion IQ with a crazy body kit. Join us next week to talk about the new SuperLeggera Concept.
For you playing the home game, #mtts2014 starts off following a route the Top Gear boys did. You can check that out in season 12, episode 2, available at places you will have to search for. Oh, and White Roof Radio will be going all the way! It’s officially official and we will be providing more details about that in the very near future.
