Four MINIs took the scenic and twisty drive up the back roads to Kalamazoo Michigan to participate in the Mad Dogs and Englishman car show.
We had a Saturday evening meetup and meal with members of the Michigan MINI Club.
Sunday brought fantastic weather and almost every type of British cars that you could imagine (and more MGs and Triumphs than you could shake a stick at).
There were about 40 MINIs (and Minis) participating, ranging from bone stock to custom painted to 300HP turbo-charged creations, and every mod in-between.
Besides showing off the cars, and judging numerous categories, there was a chance to play a few field games including a casual autocross, a bucket racce (the driver is blindfolded, and the navigator needs to give directions to complete a slow speed slalom), Motor polo and others.
It was a blast to hang out with the Michigan club and enjoy tons of British cars!!
The Mad Dogs and Englishman car show will be held Sunday July 9th at the Gilmore Car Club Museum. Registration starts at 8:00 and the show is open to the public at 9:00.
