collectible of the day: MINI Takes the States 2008 tattoos

MINI Takes the States 2008 tattoos
Given away at each of the festivals were these MINI Takes the States 2008 tattoos.

TAKE THE STATES IN STYLE.

Use these temporary tattoos to express yourself, whether you love the look of tire tread or have a thing for checkered flags.  It’s your skin, decorate it any darn way you please.  And if you see a fellow motorer with exquisite tattoo taste and placement, be sure to let him or her know.

collectible of the day: MINI Takes the States 2008 Travelogue

Two years ago today, MINI Takes the States 2008 took place in Chicago, the third of four regional events (after Miami and Boston, but before LA).

Each registered attendee was given this MINI TAKES THE STATES TRAVELOGUE.  The spiral-bound book was part guide and part scrapbook.  There are pages to collect names and information from friends you met.  Other pages are designed for attaching photos and recording fun events.  There is a pocket in the back for holding souvenirs.

Two pages were set aside for collecting stamps from various events and booths during the festival (see below, right):
