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.

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! 🤦‍♀️😉

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!
