AMVIV is A MINI Vacation In Vegas, an annual event attracting many MINIs and owners to a weekend of fun and driving – including a huge Las Vegas Strip cruise, as well as drives around the area.
Mark / AZMINIMAN posted some pics on the USA GP owners forum and kindly sent me a full size version of one I particularly liked:
Thanks Mark – great pics 🙂
Another GP shirt arrived in the mail yesterday!
This latest design is from my friend Robert Ballard
, and has been a long time coming due to various issues while Robert started up his new business …
The shirt front design incorporates an aerial view of the GP, neatly representing “I” in the “MINI” design (the roof number on the front is always GP2006, representing the year that these great cars were produced) – on the back you can custom order your GP roof number.
The same design is also available on a grey “ringer” shirt (third image); this shirt is a nicer quality material, it feels softer (it’s an Authentic Pigment shirt, while the back is made by Gildan).
You can also order a long sleeve shirt, where the custom GP roof number is printed on one sleeve (see here). All these shirts can be ordered from TwistyBitz (navigate to the store then choose “apparel”).
(other GP Tshirt write-ups here (MINIswag) and here (SwagHappy) as well as the unique cartoon GP shirt)
Jarid, owner of GP1727, took his GP on to the drag strip and did a 15.0s quarter mile “I ran four times and my BEST was 15.0 at 97mph”.

Total USA GP sales are now at 406 (see my MINI USA sales figures page), so there’s just 9 “missing” now – most if not all of those probably have 4,000 to 5,000 miles from being driven coast to coast during MINI Takes The States by press, Fireball Tim and his team, Jim McDowell, etc … wonder when we’ll see them sold …
