Here’s some photos from this year’s Baron MINI sponsored ride/rally.
The counterfeit MINI/’85 Caddy was a big hit at the event and the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art was a really nice backdrop for a group photo.
I’ve just completed my 150th MINI and it was a new design request. A solid stripe from bumper to bumper with reversed stripe on the roof all pinstriped in black. Thanks to Samer at Baron who came up with the idea. I wasn’t sure I was going to like the stripes on the bumpers but they looked pretty trick once they were installed. There’s a lot of extra work expecially on the rear bumper.
The blue stripes don’t look that blue in real life. They match the blue on the convertable roof pretty closely. The flash on my digital camera makes the blue much brighter than it really is.
I’ve been back from Toronto for a couple of weeks and I’m slowly crawling out from under the pile of work that’s built up. So here’s an update since I last posted…
While in Toronto we visited the CN Tower, the world’s tallest free standing building or structure. At the top there is a glass section of the floor where you can see straight to the ground. It took us a few minutes to ratchet up the courage to walk out on the floor but we did and it was pretty cool.
We paid a visit to MINI Downtown in Toronto.
And because no downtown big city experience is complete without the obligatory huge-ass iPod ad on the side of a building, I give this parting shot…
