    Don't know if this is legit but:

    Being Frank... - North American Motoring

    Might be a nice little scam, but maybe not...

    *Caution: There may be some negative F56 comments in the link. It's ok though, unlike some sites, NAM does allow free expression of opinions with regard to said vehicle.

    I'm going the optimistic route and hope that it's legit. Might get burned, but if it's an imposter, it's a good one.

    I can't believe more people haven't jumped into to it--I mean it's Frank Friggin' Stephenson after all (Or might be Frank Friggin' Stephenson).

    Invite him here please.

    I can't, but if you use a service such a bitly or another URL shortener service you can get a link going to M/A. Till you get caught and banned.

    Cool, I can't, I'm too close to being banned and I need the marketplace over there still.

    And also a place to rant about the F56.

    The way he's replying, I'm cautiously optimistic it's legit. Trying to get some historical perspective, but I'm not getting anywhere there--he's throwing out a few generalizations, but no specifics, and very dipolomatic negatives. I totally understand that, but man, if he'd drop his guard and have at it, that would be beyond cool.

    They can ban me if they want to don't care.

    I think it's a scam.

    Could be, time will tell, but here's to hoping.

    Damn, you dropped the MA thing right in the thread!! That won't last long...Nice touch though.

    Did you pm it to him by any chance? Not sure he's going to see it in the thread since it's a Drew moment away from going *poof*.

    There is a difference between negative comments and what was going on here. It was an utter bloodbath. Just asked that the comments not draw as much blood. Then patient needs some to stay alive ya know.

    I got a PM back from "Frank" :sosp: and he asked why he should join M\A.

    I said most older Modern MINI owner's and Original mini owners are on M\A.

    Let's see if he joins M\A.

    I think it is some NAM mod or Drew trying to impress people.

    I don't think its him at all.

    Drew is black or white, I don't see him with the ability to pull it off. It may very well be a hoax, and if so, like I wrote in my post over there, he will be relegated for driving a Smart car for the rest of his life and afterwards.

    On the other hand, maybe it was Drew, to sort out who all would send PM's referring him to MA, therefore allowing for a whole new batch of lifetime bans...

    I so want to pm Drew to definitively find out if this is real or not--if it is, someone from NAM should be all over this; it's huge. If it isn't, they should lock it down. It's the one reason I'm skeptical; this should be front page on NAM, if it was MF, it would an exclusive.

    I'm going to--it's low risk, high reward if it's legit. I'll take the egg on my face for the one in a million chance it actually is Frank Stephenson. I've done stupider things than this. And I might get a beer can out of it.
