StarLord gives you a nice long look at the new 2007 MINI Cooper and Cooper S. We go over changes to the body styling, lights, and interior, as well imagine driving it along some twisty roads in Barcelona, Spain.. Fun!
About 7 minutes, primarily footage with a bunch of Minis driving around the streets of San Francisco. Lombard Street, Twin Peaks, Fisherman’s Wharf, Golden Gate Park, Presidio, etc. Enjoy. Some funky background music, but no real narration or talking here at all. Consider it a bonus reel.
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!
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.
StarLord joins a group of 10 classics enroute to Seven Enterprises’ open house. Along the way, John fixes a broken sensor with a paperclip. When we arrive, John flies an RC helicopter. I planned on doing interviews, but the folks were swamped with customers 🙁 We see “Guinness” gets a Mk I grille, peek at 2 Riley Elf Minis, and credit songs used in all episodes thus far. This is a short episode.
StarLord demonstrates the new bits added to his classic Mini, does some side-by-side comparisons of new vs. old models, installs a parcel shelf, talks about the BSSP run, and shows you some gear used to create the show. Stay tuned after this short episode for bloopers, complete with annoying TV-style canned laughter! ;P Duration: 7:34 Minutes

Previously featured on my Movie page at the website, this is trimmed down a bit and thrown into episodes so everyone can enjoy it. Note the 16:9 screen due to the original being HD.. of course this version is smaller.. erm.. hope you like this short intro to my 2003 MINI Cooper S!
Duration 2:53 Minutes
It took awhile to put together footage of the Nikki BAMMr Run #6, due to video problems I was having with hardware and iMovie relentlessly crashing.. to top it off I uploaded the wrong file – OOPS! – but now it’s fixed (I hope..) as I re-uploaded the podcast. Hope you enjoy this playful interlude.

This 10-minute video has a little introduction to my 64 Austin Mini, some groovy racing footage shot at Laguna Seca’s ‘corkscrew’ during 2005 Vintage Mini Challenge, a review of sorts for Chris Rees’ Complete Classic Mini, a bunch of shameless shout-outs (more to come..) some mentions of other podcasters 😉 and a warning to thirsty travelers, this podcast contains footage of my favourite Irish brewsky.. Apologies in advance for sections with lower or higher volume than normal, we haven’t worked out all the kinks yet!
