She didn't go

She ( lives in Thousand Oaks) happened to stumble to the event because she was visiting her boy friend in SB. She called (I'm in Houston) and I confirmed it was Bimmerfest. I told her that she knows Jon, but the guys at the gate (with her cic) wouldn't let them through. Jon, your guys are honest and abide by the rules.

If you guys were at The In 'n Out in Gilroy, Lucky 579 was the idiot in the Dakkar Yellow M3 that "lost" it making the U-turn in front. I was the unfortunate one behind him that he almost hit. You would think the punk would stay low-key this year considering how we p-owned last year for complaining about the $20.00 fee.

So, what's the story this time? You made a U-turn with a burn out at the In-and-Out after learning the price of burger?

If you're still involved with BMW then, your funeral will no doubt be the BMW parade of all times.
The hearse would be a white converted M5 touring, carrying the BMW flag. Even Santa Barbara's finest would put behind the annual commotion that you cause them and be honored to escort you.

P-ownage Round 2 time. Son, it's not about talking excrement, it's about your maturity (or lack of it). I wish I could of taken a picture of your face as your doing the 270Ί uncontrolled spin. Your eyes told it all.
