  1. I live in the Bay area, which means that two weekends ago was the highlight of my 2016 automotive schedule - Monterey car week. For the past three years I've gone to the historic races on Saturday and Sunday, but since this was BMW's 100th birthday I talked my dad into coming out and we added Friday's Legends of the Autobahn to the itinerary. Of course, I had kept this new car secret from my dad since purchase... I wanted to see the look on his face when I picked him up from the airport in this old thing. No photos this time, but all he could do was laugh and shake his head. Needless to say, he's a fan. We woke up super early Friday morning and drove down to Legends, where I was displaying my M3. It's a driver, and under normal circumstances I wouldn't 'show' it at anything beyond cars and coffee type events, but they were keen on getting E30Ms for the 30th anniversary of the car, so I jumped in. I took quite a few photos that you can view here, below are some highlights. Huge showing of E9s, 2002s, and E30 M3s. I've never seen so many significant BMWs in one place! I guess that is kind of the point. The show was excellent - met some really nice folks whose names I forgot, spoke with some of the BMW Classic reps and got a cool license plate frame, took notes from the fully-restored 02s. There were probably 50 Neue Klasse cars there, every variety - standard, tii, touring, convertible, targa, turbo - but no Ceylon! I guess it's rare after all. As Legends wound down, my dad and I drove into Monterey to check out the Supercars on Cannery Row event. No doubt, there were some amazing cars in attendance, but it wasn't really my style of car event. It was packed to the gills, and a bit heavy on flat bills, instagram handles, vinyl wraps, and aspiring YouTube celebrities. The photos I was able to shoot around all the crowds are here, highlights below. Saturday and Sunday were the real meat of the weekend, the historic races at Laguna Seca. In three years I've never even considered going to the Pebble Beach concours, paying $300 to see primped and polished one-offs sitting idly on the grass. The historic races are absolutely mind-blowing and BMW's presence made this year extra-special. I took a TON of photos, available here, below are my highlights. Words and photos don't do it justice. Make plans now to attend next August. (but seriously, I think you do actually have to book a hotel almost a year in advance) My dad and I didn't get a hotel in the area, instead we drove the 1.5 hours back and forth each day. The Brass Rat was more than up to the task, and we had no issues. It was a great car for the event!
  2. What a fun day at Laguna! Walked around the paddocks and watched some of the races! So much car eye candy! So fun to see the races and see more friendly faces! ? Happy 100 Anniversary BMW! Thank you to Monterey BMW for allowing Tesoro to park on the lawn down at the Lakebed VIP parking ! ;-)
  3. Do you know the way to Monterey?? ? Got my registration packet with tickets to Legends and Laguna! ***Special parking at the infamous LAKEBED CORRAL! *** It's going to be a fun 2016!! Woo hoo!
  4. I had been excited for this weekend ever since last years historics. I knew it was going to be big, but I had no idea it was going to be this big. My weekend began at 5:00 Friday morning, after a week of late nights drilling holes, mounting lights, and mainly scrubbing and vacuuming. My dad and I met up with 3 more 02s and a beautiful /6 cafe racer. We headed down 17 towards Highway 1, with some of our cars adding to the thick haze of fog coming off the ocean. Just before we got off at Hwy 68 we were passed by an e30 and then an e34 M5 Touring, a car I never seen before, I squealed inside a bit. “It’s gonna be a good day” I thought to myself. No one in our group had been to our first stop Legends of the Autobahn before and we got lost, which lead us to seeing a 3.0 CSL batmobile. We finally got to legends and I park my touring with the other 2002s, and right away I’m asked what it is. I went into this weekend thinking e30 M3s, and 3.0s were rare, but by the end of Friday they honestly had become commonplace. Which was fine, Legends offered up plenty of other beautiful cars for me to ogle. Elvis Presley's’ 507, a 700 coupe which had an air cooled motorcycle motor in it, a 1934 309, and my favorites, an e30 touring and an M1. When a 3 cylinder DKW 3=6 started up, it drew a crowd, he man that owned it also has a right hand drive Colorado Touring he brought to the Brisbane 02 show. Down the hill from the main show was the Motorrad and performance section. A few Z1s, quite a few Z8s, and even more M3s. We came across a whole lot of different older Alpinas, pretty sure at least one of every model made. The motorcycles were a sight to see, I believe an r32, BMWs first motorcycle, and a few insanely clean /5 and /6s, including a gold twin turbo, that the owners unfortunately would not start up. Once Legends ended we went to a BBQ to revel for the evening with other BMW enthusiast. A big shout out and thank you to Doug for hosting. Late in the evening we returned to our campsite above turn 10 at Laguna Seca. In the campsite we had an 1800 4 door, an e30 325ix, an e36 M3 LTW, 4 2002s, and 3 Tourings, and a big 2002 FAQ banner on the fence.Needless to say, our site was packed, and we constantly had people stopping and asking us about our cars. I’ve seen posts about how much love there is in the 02 community, and I’ve always seen that in our group. I have witnessed this first hand with building my own car which was a year of non-stop fun and great times, or helping Coastalcrush get his crusty Colorado 1600 on the road before the Brisbane show. Saturday morning our group drove our cars down to the BMW corral and had cars and coffee on the back of Dr Suave! We watched the morning races, my favorite being the 1973 to 1984 FIA, IMSA GT, GTX, AAGT, and GTU cup, just because of the amount of 3.0s and M1s. After that we got ready for the BMW parade lap, where I got to ride in Steve's all stock automatic touring. He showed the three of us all the proper racing lines to take around the track, which was really informative and interesting. When we came back in (after the parade lap) my dad and I spent a while walking around the paddock, where we saw Canepas crew readying his cars. We met an older gentleman with a Model T racecar and watched him oil up and prime the fuel pump on his race car. As we headed towards the main BMW tent I stopped and drooled over the silver M1 procar that had been out just eating up the track. The car had originally raced in Japan, hence the Japanese lettering all over, then was unseen for 25 years, until it was bought and restored to its original condition, and now races around the world in historic races. The BMW tent was impressive. It had all the race cars on the ground, you could get right up and stick your head in them, and then there were a few show cars behind glass barriers. A gorgeous 2002 turbo sat in front of the 2002 Homage car (the homage car brought up a bit of a debate in our group). At the other end sat 2 art cars, an M3 GT2 sat behind the well known number 93 3.0 CSL art car that raced in Le Mans in 1975, you could tell it was a special car with just one glance. By now it was time for the next 1973-84 race, so we went to turn 5 where we could get a good look at the cars as they came into the turn. It was quite the sight to see as Canepa passed people on that bit of straight away like they were standing still, the man knows how to drive. Later we walked through the shop tents and watched people test drive Land Rovers on their test course, some people really beat on them. We headed back up to the campsite, where the lighting got just right for a photoshoot (a true golden hour), which as we all know, 2002s are very photogenic. That night we sat around our fire pit and talked about the day and our cars until it got too cold and foggy to stay up . Sunday morning we packed up our cars with our camping gear, throwing as much as I could on the roof rack of the touring. Again we brought our cars down to the turn 5 corral and talked with passersby for a bit until the 1963-73 FIA race, when we all pressed ourselves to the fence and stared in awe as 3 2002s raced around, one being an Alpina TI. We found out there were spots left for the day’s parade lap, and we quickly registered a few of our cars. This was by far my favorite part of the whole weekend. When they say you can't see a thing coming over the corkscrew, they mean you really can't see anything. But there is nothing like coming over it, downshifting to 2nd, and flooring it out. I had a smile on for the whole lap, but that part made me laugh with pure joy. A track day is now very much in order! With our cars packed, my dad and I started our drive back home, sunburned, tired, and smiling from an event filled weekend.

  7. I goofed this year. My CCA membership lapsed, and on the last day to sign up for Legends, I found out that you have to re-up on the cca membership before you can apply for Legends. Well, I never got the CCA confirmation email with the updated ID number, to allow me to sign up and pay for Legends, so I'm not currently in. Did you buy a ticket with corral parking and won't be able to make it? I'll buy your ticket! Ideally it will be for a 2002, since I'm bringing the 1600 this year. If you have a ticket, I'll buy it! Thanks, Ryan
  8. I have a pair (2) of Festorics decals for sale. Anyone interested? $8/pair PM me or send payment to my PayPal.me: https://www.paypal.me/MoFaraz I will confirm shipping. Thanks, Mo
