Mad Dogs & Englishman

Mad Dogs MINI

WRAPUP:

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!!

    Those MI folks have some very sharp MINI’s. Great show, but where were all of the CHI-town folks? I saw Steve’s car, but no clubmembers…

  • There were four Chicago Club member cars at the event..

    We are in the priority parking spots on the end.

    Only 4? You got 4 on the wine tour + john & tommy makes = 5 cars? Or was one of the wine tour cars a “prospect?”

  • The EB/EB MCS that joined us on the wine tour was a “Michiganer” just out for a Saturday drive (but he has done other CMMC events with us in the past).
