WRAPUP: 15 or so MINIs headed out for a beautiful morning drive up Sheridan Road. We reached our destination at Axels Automotive and were joined by another half dozen or so MINIs (and Mini). After some visiting and food we went into the Shop area and were treated to demos of a rear brake rotor and pad change, alignment and road force tire balancing. We were able to ask questions, and see all the details up close and in person. Nick and Axel even checked out a few other problems on peoples cars. They then fired up the grill and treated us to cheeseburgers, drinks and chips.
What a great chance to hang out and learn a bunch about our MINIs! Huge thanks to Axel, Nick and their entire crew for opening up their place to us, and taking such good care of our club.
