Going, going, gone




And just like that, another MINIs On Top is behind us. It was an amazing amount of work for Sarah, Richard, and all of the volunteers, but it was worth it to see so many MINIs and their owners smiling, hanging out, and having a great time. And we [...]

Party! MINI Style!

Remember how, just a little while ago, I was telling you about the little bit of good we’re able to do thanks to our awesome sponsors? I know what you’re thinking: “Helping others is neat, and all, but what about me?” Well, if all that kibitzing and burning of dino juice wasn’t enough fun for [...]

Are You Ready?

Can you believe MINIs On Top starts tomorrow?! Months of planning and excitement culminate in just a few short hours! And you’re totally set, right? The car’s packed, the tank’s filled, tire pressures are checked, manufacturer-nonspecific portable music device loaded with motoring tunes, your blinker fluid’s topped off, and the muffler bearing’s snugged down tight. [...]

Thanks to our sponsors!

You might think MINIs On Top is just about a gazillion small, quirky cars and their even quirkier owners getting together to kibitz and burn up dinosaur juice on the wonderfully twisty roads of New Hampshire around a very large pile of granite. But you’d be wrong.

Getting there is half the fun!

It has been a MINIs on Top tradition that MINIs from around New England get together on Friday and caravan to Attitash. This year we have more caravans to choose from than ever before so we thought we would help you out with list of all the planned caravans on Friday.

For [...]

Another Caravan!

If you’re looking for some other folks to cruise to New Hampshire with, those hoopy froods at the MassMotoringClub are gathering at the Cracker Barrel in Tewksbury at 9:30am and then blazing their own trail to Attitash. They will not be going to MINI of Bedford in Manchester to meet the other caravans.
