Open House 2006

May 20, 2006: The open house was a great success, with about 32 Classic Minis and 28 BMW MINIs, an 1100 Vanden Plas, MG Midget and Morris Minor, and about 75 people. There was strong turnout from the Redwood Empire Mini Enthusiasts, all sporting matching t-shirts and great enthusiasm. Mini Owners of America San Francisco, NorCal Minis, Sierra Sports Car Group, and other local clubs were also represented. There was even one long-distance traveler who flew in from Arizona.

All enjoyed a great BBQ, cooked by Michael Kearney himself, with hamburgers, bratwurst, and all the fixin's. Mike also installed two windshields and an exhaust system, drawing a great audience. The weather was excellent, and there were even a few swap meet items. About twenty door-prizes were awarded by drawing, evenly divided between Classic and New Mini.

We like to look under the hood. The coffee lady helped us get our engines started. The line-up in front of the shop. The Princess and the &ldquoP” Many shades of red. The Big Giveaway. Michael and Mike team up on a windshield install. Mini owners love to eat! Michael installs a bumper... but there's a fit problem with those flares. Jack and Dave provide legendary customer service. Mike demos a new magnetic Cooper stripe. The burgers are on the barbie. Spares. The shop area. Mike installs an exhaust system. Looking into the shop - complete with Krispy Kremes complements of one of our heroes! Jack guards the goody table.
