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! 🤦‍♀️😉  

BMWCCA Golden Gate Chapter CC Presidio - September 15, 2018

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!
