skarred -- When I'm in town, my wife and I frequently go to Brio in Winter Park Village and the adjacent Publix on occasion. Alice is usually parked out front :)

I've seen the Red classic before driving down Fairbanks. The driver wasn't much of a waver and seemed a little annoyed when we were driving alongside him staring. :roll: Oh well.

I keep seeing a sidewalk in lake Mary. It's not one of three at the picnic yesterday so that leaves 1996 others. I'll try to get a picture next time.

So today I was in Winter Park off of Park Ave. I was stuck at the tracks due to a train passing by. But it either got stuck, stopped or something happened because it stopped on the tracks for quite a while.

So finally, after about 15-20 mins of waiting, I decided it was best to turn around and find a new way out. Now when I did this it should have occurred to me that this was not the only street blocked, because when I got back to park ave it was packed. On my way out back to Park ave, there was a Black Mini cooper s convertible a few cars behind me in line, this car had pink stripes and a pink crown on the back, we wave and I drive on. Now the story doesn't end here.

Anyways, park ave was packed l\more then I have ever seen it.. It was backed up for awhile and barley moving, so I decided it was best to turn off and head west maybe hook back up with fairbanks/aloma that way. Near georgia ave, I see the same cooper I just saw behind me in line, she is coming the other way, I am astounded by the fact that not only she got there so quickly, but she is going the other way. Anyways, baffled, I smile and wave again. I turn left and try to head towards fairbanks, ahead I see it backed up and almost impossible to get out, so at the last minute I turn left into a parking lot and go out the other side onto the next street and head back towards georgia ave. Now I'll give you one guess as to who is driving toward me in the on coming lane. Yep, the same black and pink cooper I saw twice before. Now this time we are both laughing and waving to each other.

Anyways, I take the most round-a-bout way to get back to fairbanks/aloma and made it out of that mess in WP.

Only in a Mini can you have that much fun during a traffic mess.

Your MINI is unique and brightly-colored, so it should be easy to spot you. ;)b

Yeah I was checking out the scenery off Park Ave. I've been trying to locate a "sugar momma" to sweep me off my feet and take care of me and all my bills. Plus help pay for all the goodies that I would put on the car. Wow I feel like a "gold digging hoe!" Also Saturday night while I was :motoring: around. I spotted a Black with Red top coupe JCW in the Walmart parking lot in Apopka off of HWY. 441 on that severe thunder storm evening. Look pretty nice right before all that rain started to come down around 7:30ish. Any Ideas who that maybe? Or are they on the site? :-k

I live about a mile from DU and there are at least 4 other MINI's within 300 ft of my car. I just got mine this past weekend, it's dark silver metallic with a white roof. I also have some non factory Harmann wheels. :D
