If you can get a license plate # I can see if the person I know in the Triumph club still has access to the state database.

Good morning,

Has anyone knowingly abandoned a blue Mini Clubman in the north Dallas/Addison area (off of Midway/Beltline) in a commercial parking lot?
I feel sorry for it sitting there, and would love to rescue it if the owner's given up on it.

Hey, nice to see a few folks are still here.  Grin

John you can be sure the car won't be going anywhere under it's own power until what ever is wrong gets resolved. It sounds terrible. It went from barely noticeable to 'oh my god!' in about a mile and a half.

Jim if you'd like to take a look I sure would appreciate your opinion. Let me know what works for you and we'll find a time. Thanks for your offer!

I still lurk here some.

As Jim suggests, check for something minor first before taking it in.  It could be a loose caliper or rock between the disk and back plate.

I would definitely get it looked at quickly, Paul, before it turns into something worse!

Hi Paul,

I'm still around, just waiting for my driveway to dry out enough so I can have it redone... right now I need an amphicar to get through the puddles.

If you want me to come out and look at your car, let me know.   When I bought my first Mini I took it for a drive near my apartment and there was a grinding while moving.   I stopped at a stop sign and couldn't get going again, so I walked back to get my trolley jack.    The right front caliper had come loose and jammed inside the alloy wheel.   2 minutes with a wrench and I was good to go... back to my garage to check all the bolts in the suspension!


Jim, Diana and Jimmy
3 Minis, no Amphicars Sad

First off, it's been awfully quiet around here lately. Anybody else here?

I had the Mini out this past Saturday and I thought I head 'something' coming from the front suspension when I pulled into the parking lot at Kroger. By the time I was halfway home I KNEW there were some bad noises, a grinding noise that varied with the rotation of the front wheels. I'm not sure if it's bearings, CV joints or ? but something is eating itself up. Guess i'll be headed back to Kip Motors, hopefully sooner rather than later. Sad

Congrats. You beat us by about 13 years so we still have a lot to learn. Smiley

Join us in Mansfield at Fat Daddy’s Sports & Spirits Cafe for the first rally of our new season. After about an 80 mile drive on some of the scenic hard surfaced country roads in Tarrant and Johnson Counties you and your sweetheart (or rally partner) will end up back at Fat Daddy’s. As usual, Jerry White will be the rallymaster for this event.

This rally is about solving puzzles (many related to sweethearts) using signs and objects found along the rally route.  One penalty point will be assessed for each correct solution you don’t mark as being found, and one for each incorrect solution you mark as being correct.  Low score wins.  Puzzles can have from zero to four correct solutions.  There will never be more than one puzzle active at a time.

• Awards: First Timers, Novices (every person in the vehicle has won 2 or less rally trophies), and General Class.
• Optional Master Class for those who want bragging rights but don't want any more trophies.
• Start and finish at: Fat Daddy’s Sports & Spirits Cafe, 781 W Debbie Lane, Mansfield, TX 76063. (A great place for both lunch and dinner.)
• Registration/Check-In: 11:00 am – noon.
• General Instructions Review: 11:15 am (Geared toward first timers and novices but all are welcome.)
• Mandatory Safety Briefing: 12:10pm.

• House of Hotrods (a complete restoration shop) showroom will be open just for rally participants and workers.
• Vehicles: Sports cars, family sedans, pickup trucks, SUV's and anything else with 4 wheels that's street legal (bring something that you will be comfortable in and will have fun driving on back roads and byways, some of which are oil & chip).
• Rally Fee: $30.00 / SCCA Members: $25.00 / $5 late fee at check-in if not preregistered on Please preregister (see below) and avoid the late fee (and so we know how many Route Books to print).
• About two weeks before the rally the General Instructions will be posted on About a week before the event the General Instructions will be emailed to those who preregister by then.
• Contact the rallymaster at [email protected] if you have questions.
We encourage entrants to pre-register as early as possible. The Rally Committee reserves the right to limit entries. To pre-register and obtain additional details, follow this link to .

Come on out and discover what game/trivia/adventure (GTA) rallying is all about!
