Over the past several months I have had requests FROM ALL OVER THE WORLD for MINI Cooper cookie cutters. I just received new stock and will have a limited number of the following cutters available:

R50/R53/R56 Hardtop
R52/R57 Convertible
R55 Clubman
R60 Countryman
Classic MINI
MINI Wings

I will post ordering information soon. Each cutter is $6 and a set of all 6 id $30, which is a $6 discount. I will ship internationally but they have to be shipped in a box to prevent crushing and that costs more. Keep watching for more details.


MINI Cooper Polar Bear Motorers

We’re having some really cold weather here in Florida (for Florida at least) and last night I had a rare opportunity to break my personal temperature record for top-down motoring. My previous best was 29 degrees set during a midnight run on the Dragon so when the mercury dipped briefly to 27 here and then settled at 28, I decided to act.

Using my iPhone mounted in a KUDA holder on the right downtube, I ran a live video stream of the run using the new Qik streaming software for the iPhone. The record-breaking run could be seen live on Facebook and on my live streaming page here. Pretty cool stuff! I am amazed at the quality considering how dark it was and that I was going 60-70 mph for most of it. Check it out:

MINIBee’s Record-Breaking Cold Weather Attempt

My friend Mike McGill was in touch last night after motoring top-down in Missouri with the temperature at 11. You heard that right, 11 degrees. Hats off to Mike for that! Here is his video. I don’t know if I’ll ever get the chance to motor with MINIBee in temperatures that cold to but if I do I’ll give it a try! At 28 the drive was really quite pleasant and invigorating.

Bruce Nelson pointed me to the Arctic MINI run in Canada so I’m going to put that on my bucket list. Don’t know if I will ever make it that far in MINIBee but maybe I could rent.

I started a MINI Cooper Polar Bear Motorers group on Facebook so if you like cold-weather motoring, come join the discussion.
