California E34 owners, unite!

Well those new yorker E34 owners are about to have a little tea party get together. Let's show them how the west coast does it, if anyone is interested in meeting up somewhere i'd love to meet up with some other E34 owners(and other bimmer owners) let me know and we'll work out the details.

Current Idea(not for sure plans yet): Meet up in San Luis Obispo or Santa Barbra to get coffee, cruise on the coast, and in-n-out lunch.

People Attending:
  • 91 525i
    535iDan89
    BamBamE34
    Aquila
    FCPGroton
    SawheadE34
    CRYOBMW
    dm916
    ricks5series(?)
    calaurion(?)

Still figuring out a date and destination!

We can meet half way when we get a few more people to meet up we'll figure out a destination, time, date, etc.

I don't right now :/ I will soon though! And nice, a-bombs are sick. I had a few timmys in my time as well as plenty of marqs. Bob long makes some solid products but the gun in my sig is a creed. It looks like an ego because its a poppit as well but it'll outshoot an ego any day

I like it... There's alot more members and a majority seem a little more intelligent (i think due to their numbers).

The E34 people have gatherings every so often... I haven't gone for over a year due to my E34 being out of comission for quite some time (its alive now). But the one I did go to had a pretty good turn out.

I'm replacing my clutch so it'll be about a month to a month and a half before this happens which will give us time to find enough people who are interested as well as think of a good location to meet up. If you want to in the future i'll definitely keep everyone posted

I would be happy to join on behalf of FCP with the 540i Touring. Let me know when it is.

Maybe I can bring some FCP goodies and one time discount vouchers?

Cheers,
