Blue MINI... [photo]

Here's an unprocessed photo I took the other day just after washing the MINI...

(My neighbors always look at me funny when I wax my car with rain in the forecast. They just don't understand.)

"Crash Tuesday" (New feature!) [photo]

Since stories and images of wrecked minis come up on my MINI Radar on a regular basis, I figured I might as well capitalize on it and start another set of semi-random photo posts. Hence, "Crash Tuesday" (I thought it sounded pretty cool). To start things off, here's a poor little classic mini that apparently crashed into the wall behind it at about 50mph! Ouch!

so ronery...

Color-changing MINI? Question mark?

Showing up on my MINI COOPER Radar this morning, is the "Color-changing MINI"... Only, thus far its all talk no walk.  By this I mean, many  blogs are regurgitating the same, possiblly April Fools' Day' originating PR copy, yet, I cannot find any real information on the "Chameleon MINI",  not to mention any decent photos.  To add to the Jetsam  (i.e. key "facts" gleaned  from several online sources)...

"Called the Mini Chameleon, the car changes its colors according to both temperature and moisture. This MINI designed by BMW will showcase its brainchild in the MINI Habitat showroom in Singapore on June 30th 2009. What is amazing is the fact that colors tend to be changed in seconds...

...Color changing capability proves to be very helpful for Mini’s drivers with its ability to brighten car’s paint on a rainy day, ensuring improved visibility and thus increasing driver’s safety while on a sunny day the car’s paint lightens to reflect heat and chill the car. Color changing capability became available due to a FeintPaint technology developed by Spanish company named Payola Forlids..."

Okay, cool? Yes?  But even cooler, would be if one could actually control when/how the color changes take effect! Am I right?  Seriously... need... more... details!  Anyone?!?!

UPDATE:  With a lack of any supporting evidence, I am beginning to to think this story is a  fake.  I'll stay on top it and keep updating this post  with any information found!

(not so) Random MINI Babe [photo]

Well, I tried to avoid it, but the masses insisted that I include Playboy Playmate Sara Jean Underwood as a "Random  MINI Babe". After all, she is selling her  2007 MINI Cooper convertible for the price you could get a brand new JCW MINI for.  (ah, celebs. what can  ya do?!). At the time of publication, this MINI is on eBay for the "Buy it now" price of $35,000.  A.K.A."same price as a top of the line MINI!"But, you did to say,"do you know who this belonged too?!"
