Mini anything is normally a good idea. Tiny cell phones, tinier candy bars and the tiniest of toys are just the beginning. Cars, on the other hand, can be a bit of a different story. For quite some time, bigger was better. You weren’t the king of the castle without an absurdly large Hemi turbo packing at least five liters and consuming gasoline like you consume Jagermeister – especially when it came to trucks. MINI is re-writing the rule book on what makes a car a truck (yes, you read that right), one two-door crossover at a time. All4 all wheel drive, four cylinder Cooper Works engine pushing 200+ horses all come together under a sloping roof to make this the only crossover we would ever consider buying. In 2013 when it comes out anyway.

 You can’t have a fall evening without a fire. And you can’t have a fire without a Cowboy Cauldron. They’re built from solid plate steel, meaning they’ll last a lifetime or two and they come in four different sizes with elevated basins that can be adjusted to any height. We’re going with The Urbaan Cowboy® because it’s perfect for entertaining at home.  With a 30″ diameter basin, it is more than large enough to have a nice fire, but still small enough to pack into a pickup truck and take it with you.  Can you imagine the envy when we bust this puppy out at a tailgate or the beach? We haven’t seen a more handsome fire. You?  Best of all, Cool Material readers get an exclusive deal.
