  • How Do You Support Your Mini Habit ?

    I know this has been asked on other Mini forums but I don't recall seeing it on our forum.

    How do you support your Mini ? I mean what do you do for a living ? Let's see how many common occupations we can come up with.

    Robin - Teaches sixth grade.

    Thus my introduction that she's been in the sixth grade for going on sixteen years! Except for last year when they sent her back to fifth grade..

    Skip - Engineer for WSDOT. Holding you up in traffic every chance I get!

    Formerly worked for Lazy "B" in Tooling Inspection and Tool Design. (would be out with the rest of the Machinists on strike, glad I'm not!)

          Unfortunatly, the Mini comes in close to last place in our home - after the kids, etc.

                Support my Mini habit? By working on everybody else's Mini.
                Hung up the suit and tie over 10 years ago and said, "I ain't gonna work on Maggie's farm no more."
                The more I know about Minis, the more I know I don't know about Minis.

                        I try to support mine by being a Federal law enforcement officer and a mechanic in the U.S. Coast Guard. Now if I could just sell my house I could put my mini back on the road.

                              My Mini addiction seems to be supported by funds gleaned from selling other projects! Most, but not all, of my Mini Marcos ressurection was funded by the sale of my BSA motorcycle collection.
                              I am a teacher, my wife is a property manager for Qwest.
                              My Mini is plastic.
