Woofcast 629: Never Try to Teach a Pig to Sing

With the announcement of the MINI Electric concept this week, our Slack channel was blowing up, so we figured we had better get that on wax before we lost it! We talk about the design of the concept and our thoughts about it and electric cars overall. Then, because most of the time we can't help ourselves, we started in on marketing and how we think it's pretty ridiculous lately and not doing much to help sell cars. What do you think? Comments are open! But, seriously, talk about bad...

FINALLY a new show for you guys! Full crew, almost, an a long show too! Chad updates us about MINIs on the Mack and what's happening at Detroit Tuned (hint: blue mohawk) before we get into the news. Gabe continues to profess his love for the JCW Clubman, while agreeing that the Countryman is good too. And then well all tell him he is wrong about the new MINI package that is supposed to look like Gulf livery. It just doesn't, but it's good on MINI to give us a car that isn't black, grey,...

Woofcast 621: Gert Hildebrand Was Right

Woofcast 621 Gabe is offended, still loves the Clubman and we call him on it and then give him the time to explain himself. I am pretty sure he did a good job of it. Alex had the chance to drive Todd's race car and roadster, plus a bunch of other cars, and I ask the boys to buy a MINI with only $8kUS to spend, which brought us our first mention of the Clubvan for 2017. Sure, we go long this week, but it's a really great show. Oh yea, read about the $50K mini van here. AMVIV updates this...

Finally, the good reverend lays down some knowledge about MINI values and part prices, plus we pick the MINI we would buy with a limited budget. Don't forget the fine...
