Tidy Trunk! - April 16, 2019

TESORO’s trunk is nice and tidy in preparation for the Bay Area 02 swap and show in Brisbane, CA on May 4th. I am ecstatic over this brilliant fuel filler design by Kooglewerks ! No more contorting myself in fear of gas burping up onto the paint! 😉
 

TBT - January 31, 2019

Feeling Brisbane vibes today for a TBT! Looking forward to the next one in May!    When I grow up, I am going to be that little old lady driving her classic car(s) - with driving gloves on! ... ☺️

Closing gala - January 19, 2019

Closing gala for The BMWCCA Foundation museum for the 50th Anniversary of the 2002s was a success! Great to have met so many new faces and thank you for including TESORO in this incredible honor!   Time to bring Tesoro home! ☺️   If you haven't already bought the ICON Book... You NEED to buy the "EXPANDED EDITION" ... This is the complete book of all the cars that were there.

Making arrangements for TESORO.... - January 8, 2019

Making arrangements for TESORO to come home soon! In the meantime, there’s only 2 weekends left before the 2002 display is over at the BMWCCA Foundation Museum! Hope you got a chance to check out those on display! 🤩   (The Golf 2002 in the background is 2002AD's Alpina also on display...)
 

Hello Tesoro.... - October 3, 2018

Icon Display at the BMWCCA Foundation. What a great visit to the BMW Car Club of America Foundation in South Carolina! Check it out if you are close or passing through! They have a wonderful exhibition of some vintage “icons”on display for the 50th anniversary of the 2002! Of course the first thing I do when I see TESORO is detail him up! 🤦‍♀️😉

Today at BMWCCA CC in the Presidio, San Francisco.... Derby was the oldest car there! 😉  Great to see my friends from San Diego drive up in their M2s (Dan Tackett and friends) - and Dieter Stenger (E21 Schwarz) from Sacramento!  (Jeff Cowan took the last pic of the ///M2's)

Hurricane Florence! - September 13, 2018

With the hurricane looming in South Carolina .... I’m feeling quite anxious and concerned for TESORO being at the BMWCCA Foundation Museum! 😬 But I’ve been assured that the Foundation is taking extra steps to make sure all vehicles are protected and safe! 🤞Hoping for the best outcome to the Carolinas!
