We managed to rally together one more time before closing out 2022! A quick not to the affliates, we do go long. We are pretty sure all y’all won’t mind. Catching up, db sold his MINI (and replaced it with a bicycle). His garage is now home to a BMW X3, which there will be more words about that coming (like, it really should be a wagon).
Then, the latest news from MotoringFile, as usual! If you missed Gabe’s review of the BMW X1, go check it out if you want to find out what the next version of the Countryman will be like. We get filled on on life with a non-JCW MINI in Gabe’s garage with a horrible name, product code relevations and spy shots of the G56, plus some other information you will find to be very interesting.

We still aren’t driving very much, but Todd just got back from Philly, Detroit Tuned is still busy, Gabe is still pivoting. Mini (yes, Mini) Heritage Recharged, which is a classic Mini that has been fully converted to electric, to MINIs specifications. Gabe was even able to drive it!
We also catch up with Gabe and his trip to the UK to attended The Goodwood Revival which is a great story! He even got to meet Paul Smith and check out the MINI Strip Concept!
Starting off with our rememberance of Mr. Paddy Hopkirk. He was a great human that we were all lucky enough to meet and interview. We are still looking for the interview we did we him, but fear it might have been lost to the great server outage of aught nine.
Gabe catches us up on #mtts2022 and thank you to those of you that asked about Todd and I. We really appreciate that. Then, we have a little something to say about the MINI Aceman concept.
Don’t forget Black Roof Radio, the pre show for each episode, available to you 100% free of charge!
That’s right. They attached a giant wing to a JCW GP to take it to the ‘ring. Plus some #mtts2022 updates and a bit more on supply chain issues.

I’m joined by Todd & Gabe and we spend dang near the entire episode talking about all the cool stuff that we have seen surrounding this car we all know and love so well. This was fun to record and we hope you enjoy listening!

I met up with listener Niall Simpson to talk about Minis, MINIs and EVs, especially those that are MINI! Oh, and Nissan’s too. Hopefully you guys appreciate the insight into EV ownership that Niall shares with us!
