Thank you for your posts!  I saw the Lego commercial and enjoyed the Lego history lesson. No wonder, the kids loved their Lego, I just didn't like stepping on the pieces barefoot   lol

Since I've just become a new minimaniac, I've seen just a few other minis on the road. No one has waved back yet lol

Thanks for the Lotus identification. I wasn't sure if it was a real car, considering there was a rabbit driving AND it started to fly. The version I saw on YouTube was much shorter.

The flying Morgan is actually a Lotus Super 7, or a replica of one. Lots of cool cars in that video. Pretty weird though.

The other day while perusing YouTube videos, a pre-video ad for Lego had 2 or 3 spit-second views of a parked blue and white classic Mini. It being a YouTube ad, I could not pause it or back it up. But if you see an ad beginning with a man carrying a huge plastic bow and arrow and hunting a small white rabbit, keep watching. eventually the rabbit escapes with a flying Morgan.

(Yes I was sober and no, I have never bought or owned Lego.)
