2016 Mini Cooper S Convertible Topless Fun: Mini Takes the States Day 3

They came in red, white and blue, and an assortment of colors in between.

Mini owners had the chance to show off their vehicles and their Mini pride while enjoying the beauty of the U.S. during the 2016 Mini Takes the States rally, which started on July 9.

TFL’s Roman and Tommy Mica caught up with some of the participants during day three recently as the rally was heading toward Baltimore, Maryland. This year marks the 10th year for the rally, which ends in Palm Springs, California after 14 days and 4,000 miles.

During their third day, they drove a 2016 Mini Cooper S convertible that came equipped with a 189 horsepower, turbocharged four-cylinder engine. Roman and Tommy were at the rally for three days, having also driven a Mini Clubman and a JCW.

Throughout their travels, they talked to people from different parts the country who decided to participate in the rally and drive along with their fellow Mini enthusiasts.

Both Roman and Mica noticed this rally was much different from the others, and that the people and some of their special guests they brought with them were fun and friendly.
