Some pitfalls to owning a classic Mini include Lucas electrical problems, rust, and the dangers of speedbumps in American parking lots. In this short episode, we’ll see before and after footage on some of this. StarLord also has the single port EFI replaced with a HF SU carb system and stock exhaust with a stainless head and DTM tailpipe! WoO!
Fun from Monterey to Santa Barbara! Interviews with Fireball Tim, Gary from MC2 magazine, Mini Fini, and the MINI-based tech squad MAKE IT WORK. StarLord reflects on how awesome Mini Takes The States is, and you get to see highlights from the first leg, all widdled down to this 10 minute vodcast. Enjoy. For some reason iMovie lost some of my (music) audio tracks!? Yikes! Such as life, there are some moments of awkward silence in this episode.
Part 2 of Episode 8 is the shortest vodcast Iâ€™ve done. It has tiny formula racing footage where the Laguna Seca track record was broken, and a dash more Mini racing footage from that same day. I promise part 3 will make up for this 🙂
Parking at Crystal Springs reservoir, StarLord awaits the REME crew then heads down to Monterey. We take a quick lap around Laguna Seca, … all Â» and watch some of the classic Mini practice sessions on Saturday. A short compilation of footage from Monterey Historic races. Be sure to catch the rest on part 2 (coming soon)
In this light-hearted episode, StarLord opens up his Mini Takes The States kit and shows you what MINIUSA sent everyone partaking on the “road trip to end all road trips” rally! This is followed by quick tips (useful for all runs) how to apply the window cling (ok, that wasnâ€™t hard). The new “Italian Job” featured electric MINIs. StarLord acquired a pimped-out electric MINI and shows some of its features. Unfortunately, he crashed into both cars with it! Yikes! What will happen next?
From the YouTube archives, here’s Rich “Romeo Mike” on location with his 73 Innocenti Mini 1001. Video taped in Sicily, Italy. He’s testing out his new video camera, driving through Sicilian Traffic.. showing us pics of the Mini. We pulled this video from one of his earliest posts, you should be glad there’s background music, otherwise you’d be hearing these two guys talking throughout the whole thing.. ok nothing wrong with that, mind you, and he does credit the songs used in the show notes (used by permission under ASCAP/BMI license). Anyway here’s the video:
A quick little taste for those who may have missed it. Some photos and walking pans with random narration. A video summary of MOASF’s All-British Car Show and Swap Meet. You will see Mini, MINI, Jaguar, Lotus, Sunbeam, Triumph, Morgan, and others. Enjoy. Post production done in iMovie, Garage Band, and Adobe Premeire.
