Ok everyone Jennifer got her own mini yesterday so we are now a 2 mini family... She got a '02 Cooper S It's silver with black top and she had pink strips put on it. Looks pretty cool. Anyhow as she is a mini owner I have changed my screen name to vango. So she will feel like an independent car owner....

Awesome, congrats. Any mods other than the stripes, aero kit, and driving lights?

Wow! Congrats, guys!
Did I see you at Flow on Monday?
May 9th, 2007, 08:47 AM
Yep that was us sorry I didnt talk to ya was sorta crazy that day I was there getting a new windshield and Jennifer was buying a car. What were you having done?

First scheduled service... no big deal - just flipped 12K on the way home.
Did you get a warranty windshield, or pay for it, or insurance, or ???
Total break, or crack, or bullseyes, or ???
I've got a bunch of chips and a couple of good bullseyes - need to decide whether to do OEM glass (which seems to suck) or PPG or ???

I love it! I wasn't sure about the stripe idea but it looks perfect on her car. Congrats Jennifer, I can't wait to see it in person.

Ooh. I am glad you went with the stripes, it certainly does not look like an ultra-macho car now, but a fun one!
May 9th, 2007, 10:44 AM
Awesome! Love the stripes. :D
May 9th, 2007, 11:56 AM

Blimeycabrio yes the windshield had a stress fracture starting at the top middle going down about 10 inches and over about 10. Yes It was covered under warranty at no charge. (Thanks Flow you guys are great).

Yes Mark I told her to come up with a user name she said she was going to.

Hi everybody, it's me, Mrs. Vango!! My screen name is Lounge Lizard. Thanks for all the good feedback about the car, I am very excited. I do have to clear up one misconception...
Back in the day, I was the first to spot a mini, and I was the one who wanted one...believe it or not...Van wanted me to get...how can I even say the word...he wanted me to get a BUG!!! Once he drove one, he QUICKLY converted, and I bought a red Mini...it was mine, in my name. Two happy years passed, and one fateful day on the way to Sam's, Van, me, and Geri...I innocently said let's go get Geri a Mini!!! While she was test driving, I pointed to the blue Mini and said to Van, that's the color I would have like to have had...He traded in the red, put the blue in his name...and STOLE my mini...Justice has now been accomplished, and I am once again the proud owner of my very own, very ME Mini.

I cant wait to see it!
May 9th, 2007, 08:45 PM
believe it or not...Van wanted me to get...how can I even say the word...he wanted me to get a BUG!!!
And they let him in the club anyway????
Geesh, y'all will take ANYBODY...
Oh yeah, I guess you let me in, too... ;)

Congrats, lady! Now you really have something to sing about at the next meeting. '-)
The stripes look great, it's kind of like reverse stripes on the top, you're not sure how it'll come out till you see it, but bygum, those look super!
Can't wait to see her, (or is a car a him for women?), in person!
May 9th, 2007, 10:53 PM
Sweeeeeeeeeet!!!!! Van, you have been exposed.
May 9th, 2007, 11:02 PM
Bill is still trying to talk me into that we need to be a two Mini family but I can't see it! Great news Jennifer I am so happy for you! Happy Mini'ing! Steph

Way to go Jennifer. Love the car. I too am "thinking " of my own Mini. I need to sell some stuff first. Anyone need a "56 chevy pick-up? Almost completed. Minor assembly required. Taylor guitar? Kubota tractor?
May 10th, 2007, 03:14 AM
Id love to have another Taylor guitar but Im on a little spending freeze myself!!!!
May 10th, 2007, 08:13 AM
car looks good in the pics, congrats again
May 10th, 2007, 05:09 PM
Thanks for all the happy feedback!!! I can't wait to show it off on Monday. Hey I gotta go, I can hear that mini calling, she wants to go for a drive...I think she wants some ice cream!!!! She's a girl after my own heart. By the way, I named her Sophie, in memory of Sophie the wonder dog, and friend.
May 10th, 2007, 07:25 PM
I was naming mine Sophie too!:(
After the main character in my favorite book/movie. Oh well, there can't be two Sophies. On to choice #2...
It's a good name though!
May 10th, 2007, 08:05 PM
I think you should go with sophie Its not a big deal to have 2 cars with the same name.
