Who's that behind those Foster Grants??? The classics are fantastic. The newer cars, not so much, they look kind of "ricey" these days...

Jon, I searched the archives till my eyes blurred and could not find the ad mentioned. Since these cars are SOooo very rare, whenever I hear about another E21 Hartge I make an attempt to track it down, because (I think) two known would be better than only one. So, if it's not to much to ask if/when you happen to bump into your buddy who had the H3, and you remember, would you give my BF contact info to him? Maybe there's info about the car, be it past or present location, he might foward on to me.
Thanks in advance for any help.
GREAT job on the 08 fest, and for whats it's worth, the drive thru the dirt stables wasn't that bad either.

You can just call him. His name is Tom Siegel, and he is a salesperson at Santa Barbara Auto Group...



Glad you liked The 'Fest!

Jon, I thought the post went through but I guess I must have closed the tab by accident. Anyway, do you have anymore shots of that E9 you posted on the first page? Your shot really shows the depth of color it has. I took some on my phone but they came out terrible. I'd have to say it was my absolute favorite one there. By the way, awesome job on the 'Fest!

My weak shots. If you have more that you could post/email/PM me that would be great.

Doesn't do the car justice...

Pretty sure those are Rondells. IIRC, Rondell was an OE supplier to BMW

My favorite was that beautiful blue 3.0 with the cream interior that left the fest early, and my 2nd favorite was that white Hartge H3? Does anyone know the story about these cars? I'm surprised neither one caught the eye of whoever did the classic car judging, but then again there was a lot of cars to look at. If all goes well, BF09 will see me there with a BMW.
Great job to the planners and organizers of this event.
Really? That's Matt's car. I think he was under the impression that it was the only one in the US. Although I must say even if it isn't, it has every single option Hartge offered on the H3 E21 and is extremely clean in every aspect. He even has more documentation on the H3 than Hartge them selves. He had it on eBay a couple months ago and it went as high as 16k before he pulled the auction after second thoughts. Not to shabby for an E21, the car is crazy bat$hit fast!

HB Chris,
It's gorgeous! Wanna trade for another E39? Lol.
Any chance you have any more pictures of it that are good quality? Mine don't do the car justice, and I really like it a lot. Would make a great desktop back ground. If you have any more and don't mind sharing, I'd appreciate it. You can post em here or just email me.
If you want to email me, just let me know and I'll send you a message with my email.
Thanks.

Chris's E9 is beautiful, I can't wait to see how nice his "new" 02 comes out. It was really cool having him in my rear view mirror for about an hour after Bfest, while we toured the backroads of SB.

Actually, I'm STILL under that impression - and I'd happily give $100 to anyone that can show me(present), not tell me about(past), another one like it...... also it's bat$hit QUICK, not fast: there is a difference.
