MINIs on the Mack 08/03



WRAPUP: What a fabulous event!!  MINI of Grand Rapids was a great host, and Chicago area people filled close to half the 30+ cars that convoyed out to St. Ignace.  Friday night was fun to just hang out and watch MINIs cruising the area in all directions.  Early Saturday, we gathered in a field and took off for a 15 mile drive thru some scenic back roads culminating with a drive over the Mackinac bridge.  A party was held afterwards with plenty of time to check out hundreds of cool MINIs.  We were a little short of the world record, but with 846 1/2 cars (the half was a trailer) it was the largest single gathering of MINIs in North America.    We did get a record of the most cars playing a song on car horns, and the prize for the best dressed MINI was won by CMMC member Sean!!
