SoCal MINI Maniacs (SCMM) is a friendly, casual, non-profit organization formed primarily as a social club for the enjoyment of the MINI Cooper automobile among a group of like-minded enthusiasts. Anyone who holds an appreciation and interest in these cars may join. We welcome all MINIs both new and classic to our club. Don’t have a MINI yet? No problem! Visit MINI USA and build your own.
The one-time membership fee is modest and allows us to provide the club members with a website, goodies, and great special events. If you join us, there are no obligations to attend meets or participate in any events. You choose to participate in the capacity that suits you.
Our primary areas of operation include the Southern California counties of Los Angeles, Orange, Riverside, San Bernardino, San Diego, San Luis Obispo, Santa Barbara, Ventura, Imperial and Kern.
While membership is not contingent on location, the majority of club events will take place within these counties. The more MINIs, the merrier! So go ahead and JOIN US TODAY!
In the spring of 2002, the redesigned MINI was introduced to North America and MINI mania began building around the country as more and more folks ordered and took delivery of their “babies”. The nature of this car screams “FUN” and “DRIVE ME”, and along with that comes the desire to meet up with other MINI owners.
This group first assembled at Bolsa Chica State beach in Huntington Beach on August 18, 2002. Since then we have grown tremendously, embraced the need to become “official”, and now have well over 800 members, both nationwide and international.
We are the SoCal MINI Maniacs, although we sometimes refer to ourselves as MINIacs. We are simply enthusiastic about our MINIs! We crave motoring with our brethren on the back streets and twisty mountain roads, seeing what we are capable of with these great automobiles. We enjoy sharing our MINIs with others, swapping modification details, tips, stories, and great motoring routes. To do this, we like to meet up and go on unique drives together all around lovely Southern California. If you share our passion for these little cars, please JOIN US!.
SCMM prides itself on being one of the largest, most active and vibrant MINI communities in Southern California. The size and geographic diversity of this community lend themselves to a similarly large and vibrant online community. The SCMM Forums are heart and soul of this online community. Please come on in and check out our online home-away-from-home. We think you’ll feel right at home yourself…
