You will also get a couple of BMW 2002 FAQ Stickers, a Bottle Opener, and discounts on our accessories at the store.   There is also a fancy title that comes with each membership.  
  1. What's new in this club
  2. I'm not sure if this link will work, but Chuckanut Drive from Skagit to Whatcom counties is great. Its roughly an hour and a half north of Seattle: Chuckanut Drive
  3. A couple north of the 49th for our PNW brethren Sea to Sky Hwy ( Vancouver to Whistler) lots of open road and beautiful scenery but can be busy. It's about a 100mi excursion with a few great watering holes at journey's end. A great reward. The other is the Duthie Lake Rd which is as well an approx. a 100 mi, on Hwy 9 east of (Pemberton, on the way to Whistler) but a great drive none the less. Not particularly well travelled( by cops either) with more than a few curves.
  4. Hello folks, Let's get something awesome going here that we all can go back to as a useful tool later "down the road"... Please list your absolute favorite road in the Pacific Northwest (so long as it hasn't been already mentioned in this very thread) along with either coordinates or an exact intersection for at minimum the starting point (and preferably a relative ending point). I will periodically gather each location and create a handy Google maps link along with a preview photo for each of the best stretches of pavement in the Pacific Northwest in an orderly list below. Just somewhere your 02's can smile. I'll start things off with my favorite therapy road, drop yours below. [your pictures of road or landmark along the route are appreciated] PNW's Best Stretches of Road: ... Historic Columbia River Highway Location (based off closest major city): Portland, Oregon Information: An absolute must if passing through Oregon, you get some of Oregon's best in a stretch of about 15-20 miles. Navigation: https://goo.gl/maps/qaKgFYjUtqD2 (currently the last 1/4th of route is closed due to recent wildfires, but when open - will lead you right to the famous Multnomah Falls...you can take cut to freeway to get around the closures) Preview: ... Oregon Wine Country Location (based off closest major city): Salem, Oregon Information: Between Yamhill and Lane County, throughout the Willamette Valley, you'll find some of the best secondary driving roads in the world. Just keep your eyes on the road with this one, because the scenery is definitely distracting. Navigation: https://goo.gl/maps/Twe32sLbjGm Preview: ... Sea-to-Sky Highway Route Location (based off closest major city): Vancouver, Canada Information: A lengthy route from Vancouver to Whistler with lots of open road and beautiful scenery, but it can get busy. It's about a 100-mile excursion with a few great watering holes at journey's end. A great reward. At one point rated as 2nd most dangerous road in the world. You can be the judge of that. Navigation: https://goo.gl/5NAEpm Preview: ... Duthie Lake Rd Location (based off closest major city): Pemberton, Canada Information: Another 100-mile lengthy route from Pemberton to Lillooet in British Columbia on Hwy 9 (east of Pemberton, on the way to Whistler), but a great drive none the less. Not particularly well traveled (by cops either) with more than a few curves to satisfy the ultimate driving machine. Navigation: https://goo.gl/maps/vwvR2EmBygk Preview: ... Chuckanut Drive Location (based off closest major city): Bellingham, Washington Information: 30 miles of breath-taking views as you chase the curves of the road through the forests of upper Washington, just over an hour north of Seattle. Sounds like a dream. Navigation: https://goo.gl/maps/Tb5CqaoK5Wn Preview: ... Alsea/Mary's Peak Falls Loop Location (based off closest major city): Corvallis, Oregon Information: This 70-mile route explores the western edges of the Willamette Valley, and even into the Coast Range a bit. The route passes in the shadow of majestic Marys Peak, enters the deep-forest setting of Alsea Falls, and returns via Alpine and Bellfountain roads with climbs up to 4,000ft elevation.

  5. Sounds good. Will look into it. Let me know if you plan to go to the first event.
  6. Looks like a deal! Please don't forget to add yourself to the member map so we can more effectively organize events according to our analytics.
  7. Just re-found this group thanks to seller of the '74 tii on BaT... too bad I missed Fall Colors by a couple months, but that's what this year is for!
  8. Folks, please go mark yourself on the member map for this (PNW) club. Currently, we're showing only 2 members in Portland - I know there's many more hiding in their shells... The member map can be found in the club menu as the last option or directly linked here.
  9. I have already made you the "Leader" but i am not sure on the difference between leader and owner See what you can change and add to fit what you guys need. If you do no see "Manage Club" button at the banner, let me know. You already have your own calendar, forum, member map. Good luck! Steve K.
  10. I was admin when the club was created after we jumped on the new site thanks to Steve. Unless somebody else wants to, I can represent the Portland area in the PNW as admin. I feel like we have much potential here, similar to how active our friends up north in Seattle have been with multiple events throughout the year. Looking forward! Thanks again, Slavik
  11. I see that this might be one of the more active clubs. Glad to see that. Anyone wants to be the owner and/or leader here? No much of responsibility, but this will allow you to make this a bit more personal. steve k.
  12. Will do! Here is the outfit that puts on the events I went to last year. http://www.bcautosports.club/event-schedule/axsched/ Great group, just serious enough to put on a good event, relaxed enough not to suck the fun out of it. Maybe if we get enough cars to show up they'll make a vintage class!
  13. Hey John. If you head to an AutoX event this year let me know. I just purchased a 73 Sahara that I'd like to start getting back into AutoX with.
