A post by Ed ‘MAXAMINI’ Smith 10 days before MOT ‘ 05. Re-posted by Jeff West (HWY61) last year. Honestly, I am perplexed by the cod references, but it still brings water (not to be confused with tears) to my eyes every time I hear it.
” …the weekend will be what it is. MINIs On Top will define itself. It is like a river overflowing it’s banks. It cannot be contained. Go with the flow. Don’t dip your toe. Full immersion is the way. In the end you will find it less about the cars than the people who inhabit them.
I await the weekend with the unbridled enthusiasm of a six year old hearing the faint sound of distant bells as the Ice Cream Man approaches his street from blocks away. It’s coming. It’s coming. I hear them. Listen. Hear it? I told you. Woohoo.
The orchestra begins to assemble. Instruments are drawn from their cases. Violins drawn to chins and bows begin to slide across strings. Each member as yet unaware of the other as they continue to tune their individual instruments but soon the house lights will dim and the Great Cod will rise from the pit and behold MINIs On Top shall fill the great mountain valleys and the sweet music of 208 motors and Motorers shall rise to the heavens and it will be said of the Grand Cod.. It is a good.
Peace, Sunshine, and Goodwill be yours. Can I get an Amen?…”
