If everything seems under control, you're just not going fast enough.

Here's a screen grab (OK, an HD set with the screen set to "freeze" and a camera shot of that screen) from a current Wendy's commercial.  What's behind that Ford with the poorly obscured logo?  A Silk Green MINI!:


Why not switch the two cars I wonder.  A chair on a roof rack would be even funnier on a MINI.

Just can't let this thread go, can I?:


Picked up this flyer for Zipcars a while ago but it just resurfaced during an office cleaning.  Didn't even know that "Muswell" was a name...

Here's one of the current BECU splash screens on their website:


I understand that the interest rate for high performance cars is higher than the rate for "regular" vehicles. Still, it's pretty to look at.

That is surely to raise some hackles! 

John Lennon expressed something similar in biblical reference and it did not turn out to well for him...

I wish there was a local MINI Dealership, like our Honda, Subaru, Mazada and VW.

This one was taken a long time ago (January, 2010!)  Just resurfaced during a computer cleaning:


I was hesitant to post this; the Yelp reviews are mixed at best.  Just a reminder that there are lots of really qualified shops that will work on your MINI and don't have the word "tender" in the name.  Sharp eyed readers will notice that they have mis-spelled "Volkswagen" in their giant bus ad!

What's that silver thing in the bottom of the photo?

Because when you are giving rides to Seniors who need to use a cane to walk, make sure you bring a low to the ground, hard to get into two-door with a busy ride.

On the other hand, maybe it puts a smile on their face!

It could be a market development technique. Cause heart attacks to free up spots for younger, lower maintenance customers who can pay the same high monthly rates.

Back of current (May 2015) 2 3/4 oz. Lays potato chip bag.  Code has been redeemed and is not a winner.  The prize car is a Nissan 370Z roadster.  A MINI is not one of the prizes!  That's clearly a first generation convertible so I'm not sure you'd give away a used car in a national prize promotion anyway.

Most non-MINI people would not recognize the difference between the years/models of MINI.

To bad you were not a winner!  Maybe on the next bag?

I wish there was a local MINI Dealership, like our Honda, Subaru, Mazada and VW.

From the latest WSDOT rendering of future SR99 off ramps:



I spot a minimum of two MINI's, both headed southbound (hint).
