MINI takes the States 2014

Good morning Warren and Friends

Driving the Nation had a great time at MINI takes the States in 2014. I know to some (Warren!) it sounds like a marketing scheme, but it’s so much fun to see regular people take their own car and spend their own money tromping across the United States and just enjoying themselves.

I met some of the nicest people, and they’ve saved up their vacation time and their money for this event. It’s not cheap, they say it costs $5,000-$7,500 for the trip.

MINI had Tony Hawk, the ultimate skateboarder skating over MINIs as they left the beginning line of the San Francisco trip.

I have a question for the people who own 3-row SUVs. How often do you use all 3 rows for hauling people?

Let’s chat about cars:
