Volo Museum Drive 4/14


 About 20 MINIs showed up for a relaxed drive around some fun twisty roads.  One road closure forced a bit of backtracking and wrong turn-taking.  The museum was huge, with lots of really neat cars and antiques to check out.

    Hey Steve, great drive, not an easy area to find good roads on a Sat afternoon, but you did. We had a blast and yep the back of the pack is more fun. Even more so with Marco.
