    The irony of this popping up.

    I'm hoping someone finally shows up with one of my old MINIs at breakfast, one of these days.

    My wife called me an idiot for buying a MINI too, she wanted me to by a 'vette.

    I asked her what's worse, being an idiot, or marrying one?

    It was a rhetorical question, but it didn't stop her from answering it anyway.

    As you continue to purchase MINIs the odds of this increase :donut1::beer

    My wife thinks I am an idiot for other reasons but my car is not one of them.

    She like it, but does not like to ride in it. :rolleyes:

    No comment on what his wife thinks of him. :wink:
    Yep he is keeping the local used car dealers in business. No idea what the current ride is.
