What's a dooder shirt?

Also, what type of camera are you using? These photos are crystal clear, and, with the arrival of my new camera on Saturday (yesterday) I am more into finding out equipment as well. Your photos are great!

My cam - a 12.1 MP Powershot G9 - still getting used to.. back to our story

Dean (aka as Dooderopolis on Mini Mania), Mini owner in Okiehomie City designed some Tshirts with different Mini versions. We've started posting pictures of Dooder shirts in various places and countries.

I'm using a Canon Rebel XT but I am camera challenged. I thought I would learn to use it but I must not really be that interested as I never seem to find the time to educate myself. I just use it in program mode.

I am clapping here for the fine job you all are doing. Building a car, building friendships, building a scrap book.

Keep up the good work, and have fun!

I started posting on Mini Mania, but added in a few more messages boards where folks are true car enthusiasts.

Meanwhile, other work continues.....

Mike Ehinger returns for round two. He brings along his friend Gordy, who turns out to be NO HELP.

We've just heard it run, for a few seconds. I've got some video on my phone if I can figure out what to do with it. We're all exhausted and closing up shop for the weekend. What an adventure. I'll post some wrap up info in a bit.
