Daniele does Geneva 2014

Each year I pencil the Geneva show into my plans.  And why not? Geneva is only 275km from where I grew up and I still have family in the area.  But then the winter of Detroit gets on my nerves and by January I am itching for some sunshine.  So decision time comes, Geneva or a beach in the Caribbean.  Guess what I chose?  The good news?  When I don’t go the Geneva you guys get to skip my amateurish and out-of-focus photos and see Daniele Maida’s awesome ones.  So, with limited interruption, here are some awesome shots from Dani Photo Design.

We lamented at the Los Angeles show that the Mini isn’t so Mini anymore.  In fact the new Mini Clubman Concept actually no longer fits on this page.

As a first gen New Mini owner I recently avoided buying a 2nd gen because it had lost some of the intimacy.  The 3rd gen destroyed the rest of the intimacy and the new Clubman Concept smashing it in the ground and stomps all over it.

That’s enough for a Best in Show Award for me (we never claimed to be unbiased – congrats T Jon)

Come back tomorrow for some other beautiful shapes from the Geneva show.
