  1. What's new in this club
  2. For folks coming from Dayton and points north and northeast. We can meet at the KY welcome station/rest stop on I-75/71 just south of Cincinnati and before the two interstates split (same place we met last year). Be there at 9:30 and we'll have plenty of time to reach Lexington by 11 (it's only about 60 or so miles) PM me if you want to join up so I'll know who to look for. cheers mike
  3. Drive safe! Looking forward to catching up next weekend
  4. Nice. But we can’t leave until after Karie has her finale show at uptown arts to end the school year, at 5 on Thursday. Have fun guys! Be safe. See you Friday morning.
  5. Hello RGB'ers and distinguished guests: It's May and that can only mean one thing - everyone frantically tearing their cars apart and rebuilding them for the Vintage. While you're furiously swinging wrenches I've got a caravan route planned so you don't have to. The plan: We need to depart no later than Noon on Thursday 5/16. I plan on arriving at about 11 to grab a quick early lunch and gas up ahead of time. The exit will have a Cracker Barrel, Waffle House, & McDonalds for your dining pleasure.This will be best/only lunch stop so best to plan to arrive with plenty of time before noon. Upon arrival, there is a large parking lot between the McDonalds and Gas station, so lets plan to meet there. Again, I'd recommend planning to arrive by 11am, gas up upon arrival, then park in the big lot and meet up with everyone else for food etc. Where to Meet: We will meet near Lexington, KY, specifically exit 115 KY 922 (Newtown Pike) on I-64 / I-75. 115 is the first exit after 64&75 merge together, but for those of you with GPS you can plug in the McDonald's address to find us -> 1946 Stanton Way, Lexington, KY 40511. Take a left off the exit and you'll see the restaurants on the right side of the street. Also, If anyone is coming from 'points beyond' and leaving earlier in the week & would like to join the caravan, there are several good hotel options off this exit. The Route: >>>>>> https://goo.gl/maps/chXEmer456sNvywj6 <<<<<< We will take I-75 South to Corbin, then US-25E, then I-40 E to Asheville. It's the same route we took last year and was a really nice, easy, scenic drive. The one major change from previous years is that we are eliminating the Corbin stop. Hopefully pressing on and only stopping once will allow us to beat some of the Asheville rush hour traffic. What to do next: 1) Comment below if you're planning on caravaning with us, then shoot me a PM with what car you'll be driving (color/model/etc) and your best contact number. **I will compile a driver contact list and distribute to everyone when we meet in Lexington** 2) Get excited, tell your friends, finish building your car. 3) Pack walkie talkies if you have them - really useful during the caravan & on site on Saturday - there is no cell service. The journey to vintage is half the fun, and last year's caravan was an absolute blast. You do not want to miss out this year. Feel free to PM/Call/Smoke signal me with any questions or concerns.
  6. until
    This will be a very casual event; no headcount is needed. Just show up and join me in the outdoor biergarten at KBH. Kreimer's Bier Haus is located at: 6052 State Route 128, Cleves, OH. Our Off-Season GTG there was a great success, so now we need to experience the ambiance along the river with beer steins in hand.
  7. There will be a meet up at the I-75/I-71 Rest Area exit just north of Frogtown Road near the split-off for I-71 in N. KY. When I say near, I mean that it is north of that split-off. We will be there by 9:45 on Thursday. So far it will be me, Mike Self and Dohn Roush making up the initial caravan to that point. That means that you will see at minimum a Sahara roundie, a Zinnoberrot E30 and a Schwarz 3.0 coupe at the Rest Area... Feel free to message me or call me if you would like to meet up. (937-479-9794) We will be heading further south to rendezvous with Jake Metz and others near Lexington, KY. (Exit 115, KY 922 - Newtown Pike) It is the first exit after I-64 & I-75 merge. We met last year on the McDonald's lot at 1946 Stanton Way, Lexington, KY 40511. We will meet there again. There are other choices besides Mickey-D's near that lot, btw. (gas stations, too!)

The Route: >>>>>> https://goo.gl/maps/KZPeqdvGChH2 <<<<<< We will take I-75 South to Corbin, then US-25E, then I-40 E to Asheville. It's the same route we took last year and was a really nice, easy, scenic drive. We will stop twice en route - once after we hit Corbin, KY/US-25E, and again about two hours later. This splits the trip into three sub two hour Legs and gives us the benefit of having pre-defined rally points. Last year we had 20+ cars and needed to stop multiple times waiting for those in the back of the group who got stuck at intersections or behind pace cars because we didn't have a definite route or rally points. This year we'll just keep going, allowing anyone who gets stuck to re-join the group at one of the pre-defined points , or to hustle down the road at their own pace. What to do next: 1) Comment below if you're planning on caravaning with us, then shoot me a PM with what car you'll be driving (color/model/etc) and your best contact number. **I will compile a driver contact list and distribute to everyone when we meet in Lexington** 2) Get excited, tell your friends, finish building your car. 3) Pack walkie talkies if you have them - really useful during the caravan & on site on saturday - there is no cell service.

Feel free to PM/Call/Smoke signal me with any questions or concerns. 8 Days!
  9. Well, THAT was fun. Thanks to all who attended yesterday. (Andrew, you missed a good one this year; maybe next April...)
  10. On Saturday, April 22nd, Jason Gipson is hosting a Spring Drive/GTG. It will run from 11 AM - 5 PM. Address: 2726 Riverside Drive, Cincinnati, Ohio 45202. We will meet before this at FUEL Coffee for a splendid morning of Cars & Coffee. We will have a short drive through the Ohio hills and end up at the work space where Jason has been assembling his Verona '75 2002. There will be a grill, burgers, beer, soft drinks, etc. Please bring a side dish or something else to share, including your choice of beverage. There is an announcement on the RGB Facebook page, so please use that to let Jason know if you will be attending or not... Thanks!
  11. Wear your new RGB shirt and all will be well!!
  12. I want to park with the RGBers, though I may be relegated to the M5 corral.
  13. A reminder: -- get your ride ready for the latter half of May. We will have a large contingent of RGB folks in Asheville this year. Jason Gipson and Eric King have been hard at work (!) on new RGB T-shirts, banners, yard signs and even an RGB flag... Why do I mention that? Well, we plan to enter the main event on Saturday as a GROUP (Gruppe?). We will rendezvous en route to the venue so that we can enter together and park together. We will be able to show our colors and continue to represent our regional group in style. We certainly get noticed on Facebook. We garner a lot of interest and many compliments related to our posts, our activities, our 'team spirit', etc. This year's Vintage will be an opportunity to have a great time while expressing ourselves as a tight-knit unit of enthusiastic classic bimmer owners. Let's show folks how it is DONE. There will be a caravan to Asheville once again this year. There will be updates regarding the caravan to NC and also how we will enter the Main Event on Saturday -- parade style.
  14. Barney Toler in Austin, TX is the new owner of this tii. Karl's former car is currently being restored. The paint color is yet to be determined. After seeing the Golf '72 2002 that Barney restored, I am eager to see how this tii turns out. The tii was produced with a Sahara paint job, but along the way some one painted it Malaga. Now that paint job is kaput...
  15. Kreimer's Bier Haus will be the site of our next Off-Season Dinner/GTG. There is a private banquet room on the lower level that I have reserved for 1-13-18. Just off of that room is a patio with a fire pit. The banquet room is large and includes a fire place and a big screen TV. I had lunch at KBH last Friday. I was impressed with their energy level and the food was good. It would also be fun to gather there during warmer weather since they have a lot of space outside with at least two outdoor bars and various spots with tables and chairs from which to watch the river pass by... It is located in Cleves which is on the west side of Cincinnati. KBH is along route 128 just off of I-74.
  16. Jim, et. al., Sorry I could not make it, after promising I would be there. Missed you guys. I was roped into teaching a 3-day non-car-related workshop which had to take priority. Thanks for missing me! Good to see you at The Museum, Jim. Larry PS: Got it back!
