What an adventure ! 4000 miles in the 1600 which I affectionately dubbed

"Ol Putt Putt"

I want to thank all that helped make this voyage a drive of a life time.

Really not a painful trip, the 1600 is a great little car and was easy to drive.

Here are some assorted Pictures from the road.

Hope to make it out there again soon !

Double click on the pictures and they will enlarge

looking at the photo entitled: putt-putt's new home

suggests that this car will be very happy. if you squint your eyes you could almost imagine a village in Bavaria.

much better living arrangements for an 02 than having to be parked at the curb in a city environment....

i enjoyed inspecting that car while it was in brisbane.

It was great meeting, chewing the fat and driving with you. I'll think of you when I find my 1600 for delivery to Canada.

I took a picture of all the lic plates from all the states represented at V&V, and I went back to the parking lot, after I found out about your adventure, but I couldn't find one from CA! This is one of my favorite one, of you holding it, for the record.

The CA import

Joseph: you're welcome! Invade the Denker-McCarty home again sometime! (that goes for Mike ('02monster), Kris, & Steve too) I will be tempted to drive mine to the west coast one day. (engine work will be necess. before I attempt that!!) See you next time a car needs to be ferried over to this 1/2 of the USA.

Joseph,

It was great meeting and talking to you, starting at the side of the interstate on the way in!! I am somewhat envious of your road trip...an excellent adventure. Take care.

Joe,

I think you need to start a car delivery service. "take delivery of a rust free Cali BMW at Vintage at the Vineyards"

Thanks again Scott for putting together an outstanding event.

We are taking notes out here to improve the Bay Area 02 event.
