The day started out quietly ....

The Mini Mania New MINI was a huge hit with the crowd at the recent San Jose International Auto Show. Over the four-day event, many hundreds of eager "looky-lou's" came by to see the MINI and ask questions of Mini Mania's Steve McCrory and Steve Nightengale.

The crowd's reaction to the MINI was overwhelmingly positive. The crowd around our booth was frequently three times the size shown in the last picture at left. Many visitors came to the auto show specifically to see our MINI, including at least one person who had driven up from Southern California to see it! A surprising number of people told us they had a New MINI on order at their nearest dealer -- those first 20,000 are going FAST!

Mini Mania is currently discussing the possibility of attending a major auto show in Southern California in the VERY near future -- keep checking with MiniMania.com for details!
