Did you list your clubman estate for sale anywhere?

No Joe, he was referred by a friend and local club member after he posted a pic on Facebook - his friend saw it and they got to talking and put him together with me, the rest is history as they say.

He's already home in Texas and drove Buzz to the store!

Buzz's new owner reports that he's having a ball with him, he reports that everywhere he goes he gets waves and thumbs up, and he's really enjoying the car, I'm happy to say.....

That's awesome.  His hand is even on a newly matched wing lol.  The guys at the paint store last week were asking about it.

Well glad i got to ride in it when I did then.

John Gervais

Awesome that with 5 MINIs behind him, he'll get to really appreciate their heritage first-hand.

Yep, Buzz is the first Mini he's ever driven - said he rode in a few when looking to buy but the owners wouldn't let him drive!

He's a happy owner so far!

A nice way to sell a car.
Something I have been thinking about. I think BAT would be a good place to list mine.


MiniDave

BaT has been getting some strong money, especially on Minis and Jags......

Buzz's first Texas car show, since he moved to the warmer climate....in City Park, Kilgore Texas..... bet he was the only Mini there!

Justin wrote this weekend.....

I am just so Proud of this little guy. We just did over 300 miles around East TX and he just purred the whole way. Goal was to simulate an average rally day. Doing the math, he averaged 37 mpg. He does have a couple of namesake "Buzzs" I hope to get addressed before this summer's rally. With each passing day I am feeling more confident he will be my ride for ‪#‎MTTS2016‬. Kudos to Dave Craven for getting him sorted out to the point he did before I adopted him.

It will be fun having some classic's in the mix, even for a short time.....I was planning to drive Buzz to Sandy Eggo this summer, but across the whole US twice - 11,000 miles?  In the summer?  I don't think I could do that.....

I was about to say if that's his house you didn't ask enough money!

A small postscript to the tale of Buzz......

Buzz was named by my wife, as I was driving him home from Baltimore to KC, at one part she called me and of course had a lot of trouble hearing me over the cacophony of noises - she named him Buzz on the spot!

Today I was wandering around the net and came across Dooder's website, one page has pics of people from all over the world wearing his shirts, and as I was looking at the names and faces, one stuck out.....a fellow by the name of John is sitting in the back of a beige Estate, named Pudwell. John Davis is the fellow who imported Buzz, and Terry Pudwell was the man who owned Buzz last in England....had I known Terry's last name when I bought Buzz I might have named him Pudwell too!

Here's the pic, apparently before Buzz got his new paintjob and stripes......it is a small world indeed, especially where Minis are concerned!
