Wouldn't dare...I won't even tell him about the "secret" drive I picked for us "classics" after Bimmerfest. Very scenic, and very fun.

Hahaha...That car looks ridiculous! Do you think American police will ever just bite the bullet and start buying imported cars? Crown Victorias and Chargers all the time? I love this pic from Wikipedia...



That's a cop I wouldn't mind seeing in the rear view. Hahaha...

As long as he has his lights on in front of us clearing the way, I'm good with it!

Thank you for the compliment. Were you the one that turned around and followed me through the 192 twisties?? I love that section. Were you visiting? Always parked at work in a lot on State St.

That was actually another estoril roadster...the guy waved to me as we passed. First and only time I had ever seen him. A mile or two down the road I then found you. My girlfriend thought I was a loser getting excited over all these bmw's. I actually live right near las positas and foothill, I go to school at UCSB.

That explain it all. Couldn't figure how you were going two directions at once. I went up Cold Springs Rd. and then back over Mountain drive, which is not a fast road (lots of bikes and hikers), but very scenic. Find me and say Hi at BFest...I am the greying old fart in the bright orange car.
