I don't get my MINI for another few weeks. It's a Black Cooper with a white roof (and sunroof).
I venture into Hampstead to see friends sometimes so I might drive past you some day when I get my new cooper.
All the best.

Apr 6th, 2003, 08:22 PM
It would be a stretch if we ever passed each other living in Toronto. But if I see a Mini with UK plates on it I will surely wave.:D
Apr 6th, 2003, 08:46 PM
I'm the only indi blue ONE with chromey boothandle/grill + spots that I am aware of up here so toot if you see me :)
Likewise if you see me heading towards plymouth on the m5(S) on easter weekend toot :)
We need some sort of mini2 signal!

I am in k I have seen a nice silver blacktop non tantdard alloys cooper S in the bishopthorpe road car park. I have a red white roof cooper chilli pack 17" alloys CD and aircon.
Wave if you see me

I'm living in the seemingly unfriendly MINI land of Germany. Every single MINI that I have waved grinned like an idiot at has totally ignored me (well except for one but since he was my co-worker, he doesnt count :) ) I'm currently living about 30 southwest of Frankfurt. I am, however, really looking forward to driving up to Hamm this weekend, as there will (hopefully) be a ton of happy, gregarious MINI drivers on the same roads heading to Hamm. :)
Hope to see you all (or some of you all) there!

I live in Wigan (With pies) but teach badly in Blackburn.
By the way thanks to anyone who has waved to me recently, just really cheered me up.(BRG/W with a nodding scobby doo)

My votes for a flash of the front fogs...
2 flashes is kidna common i think, not to much experiense tho...
i like using the fogs a flash cos the old mini had the flash of the headlights, plus i like to be different :D :D

South Cambridgeshire here, working in Cambridge. Lot's more minis on the road these days. Fantastic.

Like you I live in Castle Bromwich. See quite a few Minis around the area now but looking at your gallery I'm sure I haven't seen you around. Think I'd remember as your car is pretty distinctive -will definately wave if I see you around.

I saw a great Indi Blue Cooper on Saturday, looked like the Aero kit decals had been replaced with real mest and there was a nice fat exhaust on the back.
This was just the other side of Tunbridge Wells - the Crowborough side :-)

Yep, I'm another from Dorset. You, Max, are the only other I've come across. There is another guy (and another in Wilts), but he hasn't contributed since I joined. Actually, early this year I started a new thread under "Social/Regional UK" suggesting a meet. But received zero, zilch replies. Doh . So might link up with Stu from the west country who hopes to do a Dartmoor run. Also, not only do I have a silver car, but live in an urban area. Woohoo :D Trouble is you're right.
There's a fabulous pic of a green mini parked on Sydney's North Shore. Can't find it at the moment.
Incidentally, that's not a bad idea of yours about there being a MINI2 recognition sign. Think, maybe that one will be for consideration by the powers that be. Will leave you to post a new thread should you want to take it further.

I live on chafford Hundred which is very near to Lakeside shopping centre....
...as in "What's an Essex girl's favourite wine?"
"Take me to Lakeside"
Although I can be found anywhere in the South East if the weather is nice at the weekend :D :D

How about a special handshake just like the freemasons! C'mon you know it makes sense! ;)
Apr 8th, 2003, 12:16 AM
Putney, London - quite a few MCS and of course those Foxton's MC. Fortunately, mine has no yellow so doesn't get mistaken for a Foxton's one.
Much. Honest :)

Near Downham Market, Norfolk, for the minute. Trying to get a new job and might end up near Immingham.
If there is anyone from that area about pls. let me know what it is like to live around there, see my post on OT&B.
Mines yellow, but I too don't get mistaken for Foxton's, can't think why?? :-)

Im in Abingdon and saw 2 mini's just the the other day a black one that whizzed past me on the A415 towards Witney that flashed me and a red one sitting at the lights of the junction A415/A338 waved. Was this you..? :) Mine's MCS DS/B.
I work in Staines to you are most likely to see me up and down the A34 and M4, although its pretty difficult to get the time to wave and flash on the motorways etc..

Oxford calling home of the MINI, seen loads around the Oxford area, funny thing was when the car was built it travelled from the Cowley plant all the way to Doncaster (i think) to then come back to the dealer near Oxford after it had been checked over by the men in white coats. Come on MINI drivers give us a wave!:black: :velvet: :red: :yellow: :silver: :shocking: :white: :eb:

Apr 12th, 2005, 05:16 PM
Stowe, Vermont USA here. I just got my production number today, so actual delivery is still a couple of months away. I've seen one blue and white MC in town with MIGNON license plates, and another black on black in nearby Waterbury...but with the dealers so far away MCs are still rare sights up here in the Frozen North!
