Posting the pictures into the thread for John.

It should be fairly straight forward to upload the pictures to the media gallery.

- Go to the media section while logged in
- Select "My Albums"
- Create a new album or select an existing album to add to
- Creating a new album will take to a screen with lots of options, I just input a name for the album, chose "ascending" as the sort order, then scroll to the bottom for the button to save the new album
- Once at the album, select "Mass Upload" to upload multiple pictures at the same time.
- Select the photos on your computer
- Select "Upload"
- Review the thumbnails and scroll to the bottom to "submit" them to the album

To link the photos into a post:
- View the photos in the album to get either BBC embedding number or direct link from the photo description/details.  (I use the direct link.)
- Go to the post where you want to insert the picture
- In the post editor, click the "insert image" button to get the image tags, insert the picture number or direct link between the tags.

The photo link did not work.

Hey John,

I you and Charlene want to do a serious "inspection" of one of the current Clubman models, let me know.  I have one and will let you guys go over it more thoroughly than the dealer.  (Also, I may be swapping it out for a better tow vehicle in the very near future.)

There is a Mini Mania forum member that I believe goes by "Mini Mike" that lives in Long Island that may have something or know someone that does.

Found the date for this year (2017).

It appears to be scheduled for October 28th, 2017 from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm.

I went last year.  I found it by looking at the Boerne Chamber of Commerce site to find it.  Used to be the sponsoring group would distribute flyers at the Round Rock show.

Welcome back!

As far as I know, MOT has welcomed the new MINIs.  I am on my third new MINI and 10th classic Mini at the moment.

I don't post much on any of the forums - the exception being RestorationMini.

Most of the old "usual suspects" seem to have moved on to other things and other social media versus the MOT forum.

I seem to recall learning the 1098 was the same block as the 998.  The crank and pistons were supposedly the primary differences with the 1098 crank being a stroked version of the 998 crank.

Take this with a large grain of salt as my recollections have gotten scrambled and dusty over the years.

Last I knew, I think Skip still had it.  He has not been on the forum in about a year.  It has been even longer since most of the "Usual Suspects"  (aka MOTUS) have logged onto the forum.

I am pretty certain there will be a auto paint supply place nearby that will custom make a spray can or two of any color you want.

Search through this thread for the desired color code and take to them.

The place John refers to was Alamo Sportscars.

The business they evolved to is now out along the IH-10 access road past Ralph Fair Road on the way to Boerne.  The last I knew (some years ago), they still occasionally worked on some small British cars.

The only other place I heard of was somewhere in Kirby, but I also heard they closed a couple years back.

Is Henry bidding on it?  There has been discussions about that auction on a couple other forums (Mini Mania and RestorationMini).

I may try to attend this year.  I haven't been to this one in a long time.
