Auto Show February 9th

WRAPUP: A dozen MINIs braved the chilly morning and took a pothole strewn cruise down Sheridan Road and Lakeshore Drive to the Auto Show. We got a chance to see the new MINI Clubman and about 900 other non-MINIs on display.

Thanks again to Knauz MINI for helping us out with tickets and to everyone who came out to make a fun day, including a few MINI friends from as far away as Madison, Wisconsin!!
