Automotive

We are a dedicated podcast that rallies around the loyal Classic Mini community globally where we celebrate our own selfish passion - all things Classic Minis. We are not engineers or designers - but storytellers, general problem solvers and explorers on our own journey around owning and living with a Classic Mini.

Our charter is to bring unique content into our framework that may not necessarily always be Mini related, but adds to the unique and common ideology that is inherent within all Classic Mini enthusiasts - having fun, a nice beverage in hand and connecting with others. Our hope is that many Classic Mini fans can listen in on the go while bringing more value and insights around this amazing classic British car and an automotive piece of history. Cheers!

Doing something a little different for this episode as we head into the US holiday next week...I sit down with my good friend Richard, who knows NOTHING about Classic Minis, but has some funny stories to tell and salt-of-the-earth chap.  We clearly are 'a few whiskeys in' (Thank you Mr. Bradshaw) as we start recording and just talk about music, life, cars, etc.  I also answer a few emails from you guys as well.  Enjoy this one, stay safe and stay positive!  Cheers.
