The fourth annual 'A MINI Vacation In Vegas' or AMVIV IV, the premiere west cost gathering of MINI/Minis has come and gone with so many records set that you have to only commit to being there next year to experience it yourself. With well over 400 cars and events that filled 3 complete days of Mini adventures it will set the standard for next year and in fact all events across the nation.
The AMVIV staff and Sin City MINI Club members did a fabulous job of organizing this event. The various drives, track day, race, Strip Cruise, and Banquet all went off smoothly. Hats off to everyone involved in this event!
MINI owners began arriving a week early to start their own AMVIV weekend. A few professional detailers were present to freshen up the cars as they arrived. By Thursday, AMVIV participants occupied the majority of the rooms at the Palace Station Hotel and Casino. The entire upper two floors of the 6 story parking structure was filled with over 400 clean and shiny MINIs/Minis, from near stock to the extreme and there were no two MINIs alike!
MINI/Mini owners mingled in the parking structure from dawn to the wee hours in the night (or morning?). Members from various MINI/Mini clubs were present as well as owners from as far as Australia! Many vendors displayed their goodies, while some did installations on the spot. As a MINI enthusiast, this was the place to be!
They say 'what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas', but we're going to share the experirence with you.... The best way to experience it is in person, but perhaps the second best way to see a few pictures that simply tell a small part of the story. See Pictures here
