I have an '02 Mini S-model . It came from the factory with a hand scrawled "John 3-16" on the inside grille in front of the radiator! This is of course a famous bible verse. It is written in such a way that it had to be done at the factory, because the space is too tight to get your hand down in there to write the message which looks as if it was done with a sharpie/marks-a-lot.
Does anyone out there have a similar experience or has anyone seen this on their car or others? I'm not a religious person, but I can't help but joke that when driving my car at speed, which I was doing earlier today down Hwy. 1 between Morro Bay and Monterey, that I was in good hands as God is my co-pilot!
Thanks for any feedback. I would think that there is another car out there that was assembled by the same person at the factory who was compelled to share their faith with us.
People are entitled to their own religious views, but this is not okay. Some punter in the factory tags (that is, vandalizes) parts of the MINIs he (or she?) works on. You think that's nice. How would you feel if the religious reference were to an Islamic verse or some other religion you disagreed with? Would that be warm and personal?
Someone bought an army greatcoat from a surplus store - it was manufactuered in WW2 but had been in storage ever since - never used.
In the pocket was a note from two girls who worked in the greatcoat factory saying that they would like to meet up with 'a nice soldier' to go out with and gave the address of the factory , their names and the fact that they foinshed their shift at 6pm and could be seen outside the gates,
I've had this idea for a film entitled "The Passion of the MINI". It would feature a MINI being thrashed round country lanes for 12 hours.
Of course Paul Mullet would have to self finance it as none of the majors would touch it. MINI owners clubs could block book seats.
Of course there might be objections by people saying it was anti-Smart cars.
