1st Sunday Monthly Motoring

Posted by murmini Wed, 08 Aug 2007 21:16:21 GMT

We had a great run to Charleston on Sunday, with a total turn out of 14 MINIS - the largest turn out for us ever.

We almost made 15, but John couldn't make it for the whole day so just joined us for coffee before we took off. Paul from Beaufort joined us for he first time so we had four MINIS driving up from Savannah. An eventful trip with a pick up truck on fire on I-95 just north of Savannah which delayed us nearly 1 hour. Everyone was falling out of their cars and taking pictures right on I-95!

Thanks to all the great people in Charleston who waited so patiently for us on what was one of the hottest days yet with a temperature of 100 degrees. Then off we went to a great (and very overdue) brunch with some familiar faces including Derek from Myrtle Beach who I have not seen for over a year.

We then visited what can only be a moment of nostalgia for me. 20 plus classic minis in various states of decay, at Turkeys Towing and Autos. Mostly imported from New Zealand, they have a variety of classic minis from the late 60's and 70's for sale. Also a 1951 Morris Minor, complete with split windscreen and 1968 Riley Elf. We all reflected on how things had come a long way with regard to automobiles and in particular, their safety.

Then, and of course only because of the heat.... Matt found took us to Ye Ole Fashioned Ice Cream & Sandwich Cafe and we all had some ice cream! Many many thanks to MINI of Charleston for treating us... it was very kind and we all very much appreciated it. Stephanie has some great pictures of the event here.

It was great seeing everyone and we look forward to the next CoastalMINIS get together on September 2nd.
