    So,

    Once upon a time there were three bears that hung out together at MOTD. The bond was strong with these three, for if you saw one you saw them all. And they had beer!!

    The would eat, drink, and drive together. Up one mountain road and down another. One BRG, one Pepper White, and one Dark Silver.

    This camaraderie continued once they returned home and all was good in the forest.

    Then one day, one bear decided he needed something different so he went with a Mustang.

    Then the second one saw this and could no longer resist his urge to try some different porridge and he too parted ways with his Clubbie for a GTI.

    Sadly there is but one bear still in this forest. The question is what will Panda do?

    +1 on the heckling. I enjoy my MINI, the MoM group and the lifestyle too much to give it up. It may just be a nameplate to some but it's much more to me and my sanity.

    Panda is here to stay! I love my bears the same, no matter what they drive. Same goes for the other friends I've made. I started to attend MoM events to meet people with similar interests. MINI brought us all together, the love for cars and the friendships that we've created will last longer than the MINI's.

    Shame on those that judge based on the cars we drive.

    I did not take the billy club off. I'm pretty sure that if the is ever a nuclear explosion, there will be three things left in the world....cockroaches, Twinkies, and that shift knob still attached!

    With the way it's going you'll be the only cabin at MOTD without any MINIs

    It was hilarious that you were climbing all through it as my salesman was trying to explain everything to me!

    There are 7 things that I think need immediate attention on the exterior. Who can guess what they are?
