My Name is Lorrie and I live in Conway Arkansas. I became a first-time Mini owner just one month ago! I am a 50 year old mother of "4" ages 24, 22, 21 and 11. So over the past 11 years, I have transitioned from a full size van, that I had to drive, to this fabulous Mini Cooper S that I absolutely love. I have a blast driving her! I am not sure that I have settled on a name just yet... but for now I call her "Mrs. Marion" after my little spitfire "Mamaw" that absolutely adored.
I am just beginning down this road with my Mini... but expect a long happy life!!
I can't wait to learn more about clubs, accessories, and auto events and share experiences with other mini owners. Right now I would love a bike rack!!! and run flat tires!!! I am also submitting a video based on a joke that a friend of mine made about my mini!!! (to see click here)
Welcome to the club! Let them laugh....especially when they fill their gas tanks twice as often as we do...
One thing...we have a secret feud with Smart Cars (at least I do)...never ever under any circumstance get passed by a Smart Car....we have a reputation to uphold.

Yes I think there is actually something in the manual about not allowing SMART cars to pass,they are inherently evil and by allowing them to pass gives you a serious case of the cooties! No thanks..

Hi Lorrie, I own the exact same model and color combo...your car's twin! I also went from a large car that was for the kids, dog, etc... With the kids driving themselves around now, I drive a wonderful Mini! which, fits the dog just fine :)
