    Great pics, thanks for sharing.

    Took my MINI up there after a MITM a few years back when there was still quite a bit of gravel roads. What a mess it made on the car, so worth it for the views.

    i am up near reno, nv for training and i had a couple of mini owners comment about who they didnt feel my paceman was a real mini...decided to take them on a little spin in the winding roads around here...lets just say they changed their opinion...there is a reason why i got a JCW...as ive said before dont let the car fool you....big girl can run

    I really like your car! Actually- I like all the Mini's. They all look and ride differently than the "lemming cars" out there.
    I drive tons of miles a week- can you say 2,400 miles in less than a month! Those miles are so much more fun in the Mini!
    I even look for longer twisty rides to go from point A to B! I'd rather add 5 more minutes of fun riding than sitting in a Dunkin Donut drive thru breathing SUV and Truck fumes.
