Thanks to the Mini Cooper discussions, and the lack of any real complaints 
about them, I purchased an 04 Cooper S with 35K miles last night. I will pick 
it up this afternoon and end my two week car hell. In case you don't know, car 
hell is when a car nut who owns 6 vehicles doesn't have a ride to work. I am in 
the process of rebuilding the top end on my Ford Exploder after overheating due 
to a leak at the plastic radiator tank. Never saw or smelled a leak because the 
tank seem stopped leaking when the pressure dropped to 6 psi, and of course the 
coolant recovery tank stayed full. Very physical job to R&R the head gaskets on 
an SUV without removing the engine, and having to do it in the driveway because 
the Spridgets have the garage. My Midget is stuck in the trailer trapped by 
snow and ice, the battery froze, and my classic car insurance forbids even the 
occasional drive to work. Can't wait to get back to the race car work.
