Alex, As you well know, it only takes one complaint from a disgruntled customer or competitor to alert the DMV to launch an enquiry into your operation

ML arranged a choke / moke 
sale for me to a buyer in New Orleans LA, l got what l asked for the car, and was quite satisfied but l later heard ML marked it up 5K, am I pissed ?  Nope I got what l wanted for the car-

But as Hugh ( Dr Mini) hauled that car away on his trailer, ML was on the phone wanting real time pics/ video confirming it was enroute to New Orleans and then he released the escrow funds to me

High drama ? You wanta believe it

Having gotten stung the first time round, I thought Mike made it clear that he didn't physically sell cars, but acted as a knowledge bank of buyers & sellers to hook people up and get some kind of commission.

Without actually handling the car and only enacting an introduction does that make him a dealer or a broker or something else ?

I’ve known Michael since before he got in the mini business and I may have given him some thoughts. I have no problems calling him and I’m sure he would return my call.

Let’s stop this “Where is M L  aka Mini guy.com “ bullS***

He may or may not have some issues with DMV/ California Gestapo forces, so what, leave the poor guy alone, “There but for the grace of GOD god us”

A nice guy who is experiencing some issues

It looks like he’s on Instagram and Facebook. I don’t do Facebook and I wasn’t able to find his phone number otherwise I’d call.  No guts no glory.

Perhaps if they didn't have to clean up after folks like Miniguy they'd have more time and resources to deal with the general public in registering their cars. Just a thought.

Somebody should shut down the DMV.  It has taken 6 months to get my simple registration renewal in the mail.

He hasn't had any activity on his Facebook site since August 4th.  I sure hope he is OK

Probably not the fires. He's ≥ 300 miles from the nearest CA fire.

I just got an email from a friend who said Michael Lewis seems to have disappeared from the Mini community. Here's what my friend had to say:

But right now no one knows what happened to him. His website went down three weeks ago. People have been trying to email him and call him with no luck in him responding. His last bid on BAT was August 11th 2020 at 1:22pm and there hasn’t been any more of Miniguy on BAT bidding on the other minis that popped up. Which is unlike him. His online social media presence on Facebook and Twitter was May and August before the 11th. He’s not been posting anywhere else or bidding since that day on the 11th.

No one knows what happened to him.

THOUGHTS???? Does anyone here have a pending sale with Miniguy? In the past when Mini dealers have dropped out of public view it hasn't been a good thing. Just curious if he's been consumed with California fires or if he's done a runner.
