Y’all came this close (db pinches fingers) to getting an actual gin show this week. Instead, Gabe was able to join us so we talked about MINI stuff instead! Since Gabe joined us, we allowed him to wax poetic about his 2020 JCW Clubman (spoiler alert: he loves it) and we answer listener email! Oh, and you guys already watched the Goodwood Mini Race already, right? Spoil yourself, put it on the TV. Trust us.
And, one more reminder about the survey. It only takes a few minutes and we would really love your feedback. You can click through and check it out at the link below.
This week, I decided we should spend some time talking about the NFL engines that are in the current generation of MINIs; the B38 from the Cooper and the Chevy 350 of BMW engines, theb48 from just about everything. Luckily, we managed to get Gabe to join in the discussion. Hopefully you enjoy!
Are you a mechanic? Live in Detroit? Know a mechanic in Detroit? Want to work for one of the most prominent MINI Cooper shops on the planet? Send your CV over to Detroit Tuned (resume@). Chad would love to talk to you, 3,000%.
A HUGE thank you to everyone that has filled out the survey so far. We really appreciate you taking the time to provide us your amazing answers. We are still looking at you that haven’t filled it out yet. It is pretty short, anonymous and a bunch of the questions aren’t even required. If you could, we would appreciate it. Oh, and who is looking for the full version of our awesome theme music that Todd created for us? You can grab that from the server.
Full crew this week and we jump right into Gabe’s first impression of the 2021 MINI Convertible. He spent 1,000 miles with it and thought it was a great car. Watch for his upcoming review at MotoringFile. Plus a whole bunch of other MINI stuff that we actually got to talk about. Sweet!
Don’t forget to check out MotoringStripes and Detroit Tuned. And, if you would be so kind to take a few minutes to fill out the survey, we would really, REALLY, appreciate it.
This week catching up with Chad finally, talk about the Paul Smith MINI and Todd has the scoop on HK availability in upcoming deliveries and an interview with our buddy Pat McKenna! Oh, and Gabe is a jerk (his words!)!
2 things. #1, we want to see your #whiteroofradio! Show us your stickers or show us WRR on your playback device. Take to Twitter or Instagram, tag us and use the #whiteroofradio hashtag! #2, listen to the end of the show. Then, if you have a minute, send us a note, we want to hear from you. Good or bad. We want to hear it!
It’s good to be back. All MINIs, all the time here this week. I have joined the F56 club, Gabe has added an Oxford Edition to his garage, and Todd just ordered 2 JCW MINIs because he says he isn’t getting a GP3.
We talked about quite a bit this episode, links are below.
Appreciate you folks sticking around, especially through all of my bullsh*t. We will be getting back to a regular schedule, starting with 2 shows per month. Appreciate your thoughts on any of this, comments are open or you can ping us on Twitter or Instagram. Please do not message us on Facebook, we aren’t monitoring that any longer. If you are following us elsewhere, you can unfollow that page. We won’t be sneaking anything there, promise!
Just Chad and I talking about how awesome the R50/R53 was. Gabe joins us for a few minutes to add to it. And Chad gives us some great tips on what we should be doing for care and maintenance of our MINIs since they aren’t getting driven as much as before. At least, mine isn’t.
In this, the show formally known as Woofcast 66six, we meet up on Zoom since that seems to be the cool thing to do. As mentioned, please excuse any quality and delays. And, to go a bit in reverse, please don’t forget any of the fine sponsors under the White Roof Radio that have been supporting us and all of our habits since 2006!
