    Or have the generation contest and at the end of the year have an all-stars contest where all the winners of the year compete.

    Maybe even start it off with all the past winners.

    Whatever the rules/criteria will be, I'm in, Nate. I've always voted, never nominated, much more myself....I don't even have a garage/build thread. Don't really care for recognition of something I own & see daily. i just appreciate & love MINIs, esp those of our brethren, pure & simple.
    To start the ball rolling, my 1st ever nominee would be min68's well kept Pep:

    Haven't seen that check from the Dos Equis people yet. I've been standing by the mailbox too, hope I didn't miss it when I ran inside real quick to create this post.

    They don't send money. They only send beer, in easily spotted containers which they leave at the side of the road, right underneath your mailbox. Someone from your local MINI club is probably enjoying it as you read this. You have to act fast...

    I've always liked the idea and enjoy following the voting, granted I'm not always the best at following it. If reminders were were sent I'm sure I, as well as others, would do a better job in the voting process. You could go either way with nominations. The majority could be picked by you with wild cards being selected by the M/A family or vice versa. Quarterly voting would be frequent enough so that it doesn't get lost in the shuffle but would guarantee enough participants, at least I'd like to think so.

    Just my .02:Thumbsup:

    Sounds great!

    Only drawback I see is, for 3/4 of the year I will be forced to look at 2nd gen MINI's... And listen to them talk about carbon cleanings, and HP fuel pumps. :(

    Great point but if we add the classics then it would be down to only 1/2 year.:lol::Thumbsup::lol::lol:

    I won't post it in the MOTM or MOTQ thread either. :biggrin5:

    I think everyone already knows how great the R53 is and its by far the BEST of all modern MINIs. :ihih::devil:

    I will stay out of the threads as well, unless by some chance I am nominated. :)

    I vote for not bringing it back. There is no way that it won't morph into a separation of Generation based owners, on line arguments, moderated posts and general bad feelings. Just my opinion.

    Idea here...

    Its a forum... With multiple sub cultures making one. Why not have a 1st gen, 2nd gen, 3rd gen (unfortunately they are coming), and a classic of the month, then take the 4 winners, and have an election based on total votes in their category for an overall winner?

    Just my thought.

    You may be right and I know Nathan is probably concerned about that too. That's why I promised to be a good boy, even Dave.O said he would be good.:fingerscrossed::biggrin5: As for me I do like to joke around but I really like to see what others are doing to their Mini. I don't care what gen. it is. I would rather drive any Gen. Mini then any other car.
    I thank the format Nathan has suggested will work.

    If that was the case, you might as well just shut down the whole thing.

    Mark, I wouldn't have expected you to agree with me on this topic.

    Good idea Nathan. I believe I suggested something like that a year or so ago. Great minds, thinking alike and all that. :lol::lol:

    Sadly the second generation and even the third generation bashing has already started, even in this post. Some folks just can't let it go and never will. :frown2:

    Yes, a lot of what and some others had to say before were what I used to model this possible return.

    Thanks for the insight :D
