Come join SoCal Vintage BMW on Saturday June 6 for a special day of driving and modification dreams! We'll take a mountain drive through the San Gabriel Mountains via Glendora Mt. Road and Back out via CA 39 (route subject to adjustment).

After that, the real fun begins! We'll drive back to the Ireland Engineering and Groma Racing Fabricators headquarters for an Open House and a BBQ! For those that have never been to these shops in Duarte, it is a MUST SEE!!! Those that have been there will tell you, there is amazing work going on at Groma and so many of you are already running with Ireland equipment. There will also be Open House only deals, so be ready to buy! Go to the www.socalvintagebmw.com website and drop us an email so we can get a hard count as soon as possible!!

Thanks

John & Jeff

I look forward to this one. I think I will drop off my car at the end at Groma to install my IE linkage properly. I just have to give Ed heads up...

For those of you that are planning on attending Saturday's (6/6) Mountain Drive and Open House, if you haven't already dropped an email to confirm your attendance, please go to the socalvintagebmw.com website or drop an email to [email protected] We would really appreciate you doing this at your earliest convenience so we can have an accurate count. We need to know how much food to have for you guys after the drive!

We will meet at 8:15-8:30 at Glendora Mt. Road, and heading off about 8:30-8:45. Here's a map point of the assembly point:

This will be a fun run through the mountains and then an open house at Ireland Engineering AND Groma Fabricators afterwards - how cool is that?

Check out Groma's hot tii that is currently for sale:

I have a feeling this car may be driving with us....but don't quote me on that. If not it should be on view at Groma after the drive.

Thanks!

Matt.....

Prom comes once in a lifetime, we'll have another drive next month. Have a blast and reap memories that will last a lifetime.....and be safe. Taking your date in the Caribe 1600? She'll be the Belle of the Ball.....

ALSO! I have been a bit remiss, the exact spot of our assembly is about 1/2 - 3/4 mile up Glendora Mountain Road - there is a large electronic Road Condition sign (like on the freeway - it can ice up on this road in the winter since it gets up over 3000 ft) There is a dirt area to pull off for us to stage right before, so when you see that sign - that hopefull has no messages on it - look for the group pulled off to the right and join in.

Matt,

Do you really have to start getting ready that early in the morning for Prom in the evening? I guess times really have changed. :)

We'll be going in a limo with friends.

I'm actually performing a recital in the afternoon the same day, that's probably why I can't go :)

Matt,

Have fun! I can still remember my senior prom in 1970, burgundy Edwardian tux with satin lapels, hair to my shoulders, I was stylin'.

Just a quick reminder to those of you who are planning on joining us on Saturday to drop us a line confirming your participation, since we're getting food arrangements done we wnt to make sure we have an accurate count. There will also be a few cars gathering at John Barlow's in Sunland to head over to Glendora, if you want to let him know you want to ride over with that group, drop him a note at [email protected], or give him a call (if you have his number....ha!) Look forward to seeing you all, we'll have a good time driving and hanging out at Ireland/Groma on Saturday.....
