Well my first bimmerfest was great! we did have a little crash in Denver when we hit a snow storm. Here are some of the pictures I have of the damages.
Pardon my camera, its a video camera so the pictures are not that great.

Well my Dad was driving, thats him in the background saying things. I was calm because there is nothing that I can do to stop it (I was behind the camera) Ive been in plenty of situations that are beyond my control, so there is no point in getting all worked up at the time. After the crash I was pissed and sad for my car. We did still make it to the show after the crash though, and it was way worth the drive! I met so many great people there. I will be coming back next year and for each year after that, the car I bring will end up being one of my 88 325iXs though, not as pretty of cars but way better for mountain driving.

Ouch sorry about the car buddy. But if it makes you feel any better youre not the only one that got in a accident that weekend. I was driving up with the OC caravan and the SD caravan and i got rearened by one of the guys in the SD caravan. It was a total accident but yeah.... So thats my story.
