  1. A huge thank you to John, Jeff, and all the volunteers (Pierre, etc.) that make this show possible. We are very grateful for your efforts. This year's show was one of, if not, the best yet. The weather was perfect, the variety of cars was more apparent than ever before. The following pictures are FAR from an accurate representation of scale of the show, hopefully you enjoy them nonetheless. Got up early and picked up my drive for the event, a slick little E28 535i. IMG_4123 Met up with 2man from R3V, grabbed some coffee, and headed up the 405. IMG_4046 IMG_4048 Very cool to see the variety this year. IMG_4056 Jeff Caplan of Odometer Gears brought out his recently near-finished 6-year-project E28 (sporting throttle bodies, a healthy turbo, mil-spec wiring and so much more). Ireland Engineering was out en force. Ken from VintageBMWRacing brought out an M10 on an engine dyno, pretty fun to see it fire up right there. IMG_4029 Matt Rhose and his crew from Ronin Autowerks brought out a few of their 2002 racers and restomods. IMG_4028 IMG_4038 IMG_4032 Jack Fahuna brought this neat M20'02. Digging that header setup... ALOT IMG_4049 Neat to see the guys from BAT come out as well. IMG_4096 IMG_4027 Couple cool NK's IMG_4026 Awesome Coupe sporting a stroker M30 running megasquirt. This thing was beautiful. IMG_4024 IMG_4025 Another beautiful car, this Taiga Green Bavaria was stunning. Rey really knocked it out on this one. IMG_4023 Always happy to see the proper use of "there they're their". IMG_4020 IMG_3999 Hard to believe Andrew's M20'02 was built a decade ago already. IMG_4018 IMG_4017 IMG_4021 IMG_4015 Finally got to see Tony's new version of his M20'02 beast. IMG_4005 I talked quite a bit, and as a result didn't get many pictures during the peak hours of the show. However, being around at the end afforded some really fun picture options. IMG_4115 IMG_4112 Quick excuse to get my ride for the day in here. It drove great, a sweet-heart of an E28. IMG_4109 IMG_4106 There were quite a few interesting non-bmw cars worth mentioning as well. IMG_4104 Jan's S14-02 and Mr. Huff's Neue Klasse. IMG_4101 IMG_4093 IMG_4087 Very commendable that Mike, Emily, and Andrew booked it back from SEMA in time to come out with the E28 Parts Car with its new livery. IMG_4077 IMG_4076 IMG_4072 IMG_4070 IMG_4069 IMG_4064 Jesus found this hood neglected in a yard a couple years back and had it hiding in his garage. On Thursday he decided this was the year, and rocked it on his Alpina E12. Her name is Lola. IMG_4061 Mr. Tom Jones rummaging in the back of the very same car he learned to drive stick on (it's still even running the same clutch). IMG_4059 Dan Melcher's F20'02 interior, in all its ostrich-leather glory. Awesome. IMG_4057 Lovely traffic on the way home (happens every year). IMG_4117 It was a great way to spend the Saturday. -Andrew

  3. Drivers The 9th SoCal Vintage BMW Meet is ONE MONTH away!! We are finalizing t-shirt design, getting our committed sponsors on our shirts and signage and getting all our goody bag swag together to make the 9th Meet as god or better than any of the previous ones! If you haven't already done so, please register this weekend - registering early ahead of the meet makes things so much smoother at check-in, we already have all your info and payment, and just give you your goody bag and simply check you in. It makes the check in line go faster, so we can all be parked sooner and getting out and about among the hundreds of amazing Vintage BMWs that make up our fun party in the park. Since this is the 50th anniversary of the introduction of the 02, we really want a huge 02 turnout. Please go and register at www.msreg.com/SoCalVintageBMW2016 and get the word out! Now our last drive leading up to the Meet will be The Angeles Crest Drive to the Ireland Engineering Open House in two weeks on Sat Sept 24. The drive will start at The La Canada Flintridge Town Center - where the Sport Chalet used to be - meet in front of the Hamburger Habit. Drive will leave about 8AM, its a fantastic 130 mile drive through the mountains, so make sure all your brakes, safety equipment, cooling systems, etc are ready to handle it! Stay tuned as there may be drive updates. Here is the route link - but DO NOT CLICK the link on your phone, copy and paste the URL into your phone's browser (the link is fine on your computer, just not the phone) https://goo.gl/maps/1USTVuFfY2u For some reason google maps is very user unfriendly when you map a route back over roads you already went out on - whatever! The drive will end at the Ireland Engineering Open House. Bring lots of cash, Jeff always has specials that he runs just for the people showing up for that day.
  4. Drivers! Registration is now open for the 8th SoCal Vintage BMW Meet, taking place Saturday 10/31 at Woodley Park in Van Nuys.
