    Interested in joining up with Milwaukee Minis September 17th. Do we need to contact the club?

  • For the Milwaukee event, Send an e-mail to theresa@milwaukeeminis.com to give her a heads up that you will be there. It should be a great drive.

    If the weather is good, who wants to go to the BCU car show on Sunday? In terms of sheer numbers, this show “dwarfs” the MD&E show. They usually have about 800+ BRITISH cars and motorcycles. If you like the old stuff (plus a few new Lotus, Jags and Morgans), this is one of the better shows in the country.

    We’re going to the BCU car show. Our ’02 Cooper is pre-registered and ready to show, we’ll leave the ’05 home this year. There’s always great cars, people and venders (bring plenty of cash!) Barring tornadic winds we’ll probably bring the Quick Shade canopy for solar protection for us Miniacs.
