What's a MINIac?

(min-knee'-ack) NOUN - a MINI Cooper enthusiast who will make any excuse to motor (drive, travel) with fellow MINI Cooper owners while executing "you-i-fication" to their MINI.  You-i-fication can take the form of purchasing MINI options, features and/or accessories as well as third party parts/accessories including decals, flags, apparel or whatever will make the owner or their MINI unique.

With MINI Takes the States fast approaching, you will see and hear about MINI owners preparing their MINIS for the full coast-to-coast trip (Atlanta to Palm Springs) or a leg of the trip, either way, this is a big deal and everyone wants to put their MINI in the best light.  They will vinyl wrap, decal, paint, polish/wax, add badges ("badges, yeah, we want those stinkin' badges!), license plate frames, teardrop trailers, custom wheels, customize the interior...all to stand out from the crowd...but most "civilians" cannot really comprehend this.  In fact, the first words out of their mouths is you're "not normal."  Exactly.  If you don't own a MINI you won't understand.

These little cars are not for everyone.  They are small but can accommodate six plus footers.  The can carry more luggage than one can imagine, just check out what people cram into their MINIs for MTTS.  They're economical to drive but are quick.  As MINI owners already know, these are adult go-carts.

But I guess that's the point.  MINI (and classic Mini) owners are a unique breed.  We just don't like our MINIs/Minis, we LOVE our MINIs/Minis!!
