    We love you, Richard!!

    When was the very beginning? How long has MOT been happening?

    This is the 9th year. Next year is the big one-oh!

  • @MINIMUM — You’re too kind!
    @ SMIDGN — MoT #1 was 2003. We had about 75 cars that year, I think. When we went off on the group drive after Loon, most missed the directions, and we ended up with nearly everyone in a tiny rest are parking lot on Bear Notch Road. Quite the jam-up, but it was all great. I did MoT that year as a day trip, and on the way home I slaughtered a porcupine with my MINI on I-93. I came out on top, but to the tune of about $3k damage. Gary and the gang at service at MINI of Peabody had a good laugh when they put it on the lift and found about 50 quills stuck in the bottom of the car.

    By the way, year 1 was one of the best sunsets — pretty nice weather up top, and mostly clear. Just like every year. ;-)

    @blalor — Thanks for putting up these profiles, and for all the other work you’re doing for MoT. Hugely appreciated.

    Mmmmm. Cake. “The Distance” is another good car tune by Cake. :)
