Congrats on your impending retirement and good luck with your 'toys'. I'm glad you found the group.

I replaced a dinged wheel a few months ago. I too was surprised how afforadable it was due to the exhange rate.

It would have been quite a nice day had it not been for that wind/gale/hurricane that kept up all day. I was worn out by the time I got home and I was a late arriver. Good to see you guys and gals again; thanks for all the friendly chit chat.

Has anyone else signed up for ABCD this year? I sent in my registration a few weeks ago but haven't seen anyone else mention the event. I believe it's set for April 30th. Matchbox is having a little work done right now but it should be up and running by then. (At least it better be! Grin )

As soon as I get the chance to meet him you can be sure I'll send his this way. If I remember correctly, his name is Ian F., sounds like a good Irishman.  Smiley

There is a new guy over on the MetroplexMINI site who moved here from Colorado. He's an agent for Hagerty Insurance. It looks like he's got a1990 BRG Sportpak Mini. I'll send him this direction as soon as I get to meet him.

Meanwhile Matchbox if visiting Will Godwin up in Lewisville for a little TLC. I miss the little thing. Smiley

I've become addicted to Bring a Trailer. I have to check it everyday. I watched the auction on this Mini and was amazed to see it go as high as it did. Nice original Minis do well on BaT.

I've purchased some parts for Matchbox from Heritage Garage. H.G. sent out the link to this video showing the owner discussing classic Minis with no other than all-around car guy, Jay Leno. v=baB9CjOmwWc&


Ps. Nice to see Bruce and Luis at C&C this morning. The classics were well represented.

Guys I got a chance to see Luis's Mini at the MetroplexMINI happy hour this past Tuesday at the Flying Saucer. The previous owner did a very nice restoration on the car and this thing is clean as a whistle. He's got a very sharp Mini!

Welcome to the wold of Minis, Luis. Tell us a little bit more about your car; how long you've had it; where you found it; stock or modified etc etc

(who knows very little compared to the true experts here at MoT)   Smiley

I registered some time ago and had planned to be there but a last minute trip to WI for a funeral messed up my plan. It sounds like you enjoyed a beautiful day.
Next year! Smiley

I've missed some messages lately (that's what I get for not checking more often). I'm all set for ABCD and will watch to see if a brunch gets planned. My weekend schedule is pretty crazy but I'll try to make it if a date gets picked.

Interesting. Too bad I missed this earlier. My wife works in LA and it would have been a good excuse for me to spend a little time out there with her. Oh well, maybe next time.  Smiley

I saw that episode too. Wayne sure finds some neat of vehicles.
