Following our recent article about the upcoming exhibition, MINIs To The Max: 65 Years of Spirited Adventures, the BMWCCA heard from a number of readers. Through this they’ve got some fantastic cars lined up for what looks to be the biggest MINI exhibit ever in the US. However they need a few more very specific models and are looking for help from MotoringFile readers.

The museum is looking for the following cars to round-out their 2024 exhibit:

  • R58 MINI Coupe
  • The original R60 Countryman
  • R61 MINI Paceman
  • The rare and wonderful MINI R56 GP2
  • A pristine F56 hatch or F57 convertible – any model!
  • A Redbull MINI
  • A MINI that’s competed in motorsports

What does it mean to loan a car to the BMWCCA Foundation Museum? By loaning the museum your MINI, it allows you to store it in a climate controlled environment under your directives. Does it leak oil? No problem. Does it need to be started every week? No problem. In short the team at the Foundation is used to handling owners prized possessions and can take care of them as needed. All you need to do is get it there and they’ll take care of the rest.
