MINIs on the Dragon (MOTD) starts next week. This will be the 3rd year that Kel and I have spent the first weekend in May up in the Mountains with a few hundred other folks who own MINIs. We are looking forwarded to getting sometime off and relaxing. I plan on reading a few Anthony Bourdain books and checking out the new Classic Motorsports mag. We both plan on spending a lot of time sitting outside in the sun and doing nothing. I am sure I will work a few runs on the Dragon in. I am guessing that I will get most of my runs in Wednesday afternoon and Thursday morning. After that, I will probably only make tow more runs. The AtlantaMINIs reverse dragon parade and the Midnight run. I'll have an update when we get back.
News from this week:
Still waiting on the replacement parts for the TR. I'm missing some good drop top weather right now and hope the parts are waiting for me when I get back in town.
Replaced the brakes and rotors on Kelly's Lexus this week. Took me 3 times as long as it should have because no one prints a Lexus repair manual and the dealer wanted $300 for one. Next time I have to do the brakes it will only take maybe 45mins to do all 4.
