    I'm rolling in to MOTD from Charlotte, on Friday, leaving Charlotte around 1:30pm.

    If anyone experiences a mechanical problem at MOTD and MINI of Charlotte has the part, give me a call and I'll pick it up on the way: 214-394-7450

    Wow! That's cool. Years ago, if something went wrong, you walked from party to party, looking for someone with a spare handy (I once sold my spare clutch slave at a Spaghetti Dinner) or someone from the larger vendors. Actually... The guy found Nathan at the dinner and asked for help. Nathan laughed out loud, pointed at me across the circle of people chatting and said "He has blown out 4 or 5 of 'em... Odds are he has a spare in the boot." We look after our own. I think Way or Chad hooked him up with fluid and the fix. I saw the guy on the Dragon later that night!

    Hendricks MINI is the Charlotte dealership, I believe. Good to know they are looking out for the community!

    Well... I'm here if I can help. I should be at Fontana by 6pm.

    Yes they are at Full Retail pricing. ^^^^

    Also I have run for parts for Helix to MINI of Knoxville which is not that far away.

    In years past I have even done a parts run to MINI of Atlanta.
