I've had a lot of people here in Manitoba ask me "what's with the BUCKY license plate"?
No, "Bucky" is not my nickname, it's the car's nickname. I ordered this vehicle to my exact specifications from MINI Winnipeg, and I felt it deserved a special "vanity plate" that honors the personal history I have with the colors red and white...
On our first visit to Madison, Wisconsin driving BUCKY the MINI, I had to chuckle when we checked into our hotel. After we filled out the registration form, the young desk clerk noticed the description of the vehicle. "Oh cool, you have a red and white MINI Cooper!"
Then he saw the entry for Licence Plate, and said "Oh, are you Alumni?" This wizard got a patented Strieby "over the top of the eyeglasses" look and a grinning "Gee whiz, do ya think?" as his answer.
