Looking For A Small Toad?

I stumbled upon this site quite by accident, but as my sons are avid Mini Cooper fans, and I love unusual vehicles, I got sucked in and thoroughly enjoyed the tour. We think we're gonna try to make a road-trip to see them live next year. Check it out:

Cool web site. That place looks like it would be cool to see in person. You should have warned everyone it could take up to an hour. It's a little far for me to go anytime soon. When I went through Iowa in october I stopped at the "field of dreams" movie site in Dyersville. There was also the http://www.nationalfarmtoymuseum.com there too. It was something looking at all the old farm toys in the collection there and then some. And at the addmission price of $4 for 1 adult, they could charge $10 each and in my opinion it would still be worth it.

Man, I'd love to see that Farm Toy Museum, too! I can't get enough time off work to make a trip that far though, but I put it on the list of places to see if the opportunity ever arises. Thanks for the link!

When I was an infant, my parents had a King Midget with a 10 HP lawnmower engine. IIRC, they have some at that site. I would love to build a reproduction one.

Once when my dad parked it near the athletic fields at UGA, some football players picked it up and set it on top of a brick wall...
