Over the years I’ve found a few things that make me feel that I’m maintaining my connection to my dad... driving my #Mini at night heading home from a cruise or show hits me harder than most other things. #Cars have a knack of bringing people of all socioeconomic divides together. Whether you’re in a project Civic daily driver or 1948 Fleetwood that’s been part of your family for multiple generations... #CarShows are a hodge podge of people from all walks of life with a common love. The work, the effort, the dream, it all adds up to something to be proud of and something to respect. I love my Mini, I love the way it makes me feel, I love the smiles on kids faces when they’re seeing one for the first time, I love the old guys that wait for me in parking lots to tell me about their odd ball high school buddy who had one growing up, and I love reminiscing in my mind about the sights, smells, and sounds headed home in my dads Mustang from the Woodward Dream Cruise or some swap meet. When you see a modded up clunker driving down the road and you ask yourself “why did they put any money into that thing!?” I guarantee you there more to the story than meets the eye.
