Woofcast #545: I’d Rather Have A Moped

MotoringFile Sections: Podcast Mar 24th, 2015 No Comments

P90176881-highResWe start out with some event reminders to keep you guys in the loop. If you are one that is going to be attending AMVIV, you should be getting registered at The Silverton sooner rather than later. They were already at 75% capacity on the room rate last week. While you are there, you should also register for the event.

Followed by news from MotoringFile.com, including this post by Alex last week. We would be curious to know what your thoughts are on how MINI could innovate within the automotive industry. What do you think? Click over and leave a comment!

For those of you in Philly, please take care of Todd and Alex this weekend and know that I am seriously bummed that I’m missing it!

MF Poll: Help Our Man Todd Choose The Right Car

MotoringFile Sections: MF Poll, MotoringFile Garage, Podcast Mar 18th, 2015 15 Comments

F55_ClubmanConcept (26) Friend of MotoringFile and White Roof Radio co-host Todd Pearson is possibly on the hunt for a new MINI. It took some time to get him there as he was originally seduced by the dark side, and the idea of owning a Range Rover Evoque. While he is coming to his senses, there’s still great hesitation in him in regards to the car or MINI he should buy next. Bear in mind that he owns a GP1 – a car he will most likely keep whatever happens – and that his better-half drives a 2014 F56 Cooper. To help our friend make up his mind, we’ve decided to crowdsource to the MotoringFile audience his choice of vehicle and options (e.g. Todd wonders if H/K is a must). Not that he will strictly follow the final results of this poll, but we believe it is still a fun exercise to go through. With that in mind, let’s get him into the right car! continued →

Woofcast #544: There’s Not Enough Hubcaps

MotoringFile Sections: Podcast Mar 16th, 2015 No Comments

P90102757_highRes

Guests are back! This week, Shawn Myers and Charlie Volgelheim from the Motor Trend Podcast join us to talk about MINIs. If you haven’t subscribed to their show, you really should, especially for their award-winning episode from MTTS (Episode #016).

Beside going through the gazillion of cars that Shawn and Charlie have driven, we talk about news from MotoringFile including: Gabe’s summer tire adventures during winter-time, MINI worldwide sales, the upcoming debut of the F57 Convertible, and buying a MINI online. And of course, this wouldn’t be a true Woofcast without some tire and GP talk.

As always, thanks to Outomotoring.com, Cravespeed.com, and Motoringstripes.com for sponsoring the show. We are also very close to reaching our $100 goal on Patreon, so don’t hesitate to pitch-in!

Woofcast #539: Thirteen Dollars and Fifty Cents, Plus Tax

MotoringFile Sections: Podcast Feb 10th, 2015 No Comments

MF_garage_F56_1554Db still doesn’t think the diesel is coming and other news from MotoringFile.com start us out this week. All of the news that is fit for us to talk about it. A little Ask Chad/Todd about graphics you will find useful. Alex recaps his trip to California and I talk a little more about the R56 heretofore known as Bruce.

Don’t forget any of the fine sponsors for your Valentine. Might we recommend a smart phone holder from Craven Speed (aka the ‘Squeezy Thing’) or perhaps some fine motoring gear from Outmotoring.com? Trust us, this stuff is Valentine’s Day gold, friends.

Finally, we are getting closer to our goal of $100 per episode at Patreon. We really appreciate the support! We’re going to have rewards for those that have already contributed very soon along with rewards for future Patrons. Remember, when we hit $100, Todd is going to make it rain! Rain butter, baby!
