Hey guys!!! I'm just too exited about this... since we are panheads...
followers of John Cooper... i really took that seriously...
AND SINCE TODAY, i'm the proud owner of a 1995 Mini Cooper 1.3i white,
with black stripes and black roof and with the John Cooper signature....
I realize its not Skillet's Cooper.. but its the closest thing i can get lol...

....yeah.. i know... i'm not that close to be the
biggest skillet fan, but since today, i'm closer!!!

Here are some pictures of the car... my dad is driving it, i took the pictures!

hahaha i'm so exited, i love that car.

How do you do that? Can you? I guess if you drove it to one of their concerts . . .?

my good friend's dad buys a new cooper every year, and sells his old one for as much as he bought it the year before because there is a high demand for them in the US. to get a new one imported there is a huge waitlist but once you are in their club, you are sure to get one. the new ones are super quick, he gets the super charged one, and it handles amazing. the new John Cooper editions go for about 32000-35000$ and those ones are tuned even better.

Considering i live in Guatemala Central America, i would just have to drive about... uuhmmm.. about 6,500 miles in total just for an autograph... if i do that... then i would be the biggest panhead ever... lol... i've done that in an airplane... but in a car.... i dont know... in a mini!! heck no! hahaha...

the new John Cooper editions go for about 32000-35000$ and those ones are tuned even better.


that's why i got the old one... still.. it was very expensive... about 8,000 dollars
