My Bimmerfest Photographs

Here is my compilation of photographs from my trip to Bimmerfest 2008 in Santa Barbara. It was my 7th time attending the 'fest, and probably the biggest yet. I was a little perturbed by the parking situation, I'm all for finding a new venue next year. Anywho, I caravaned down with the BayBimmerz crew friday morning as always, then stayed at the ramada which had a celebrity show up saturday night. I took some pics of him (Chuck Liddell aka iceman) with his Ferrari F430, and his girlfriend but I think I deleted those on accident. I also snapped 1 shot of Kpip's famous Dayton lol. On the way back up north we stopped in Morro Bay for lunch again, and after that I decided to pull off and take in the beautiful California scenery. Made me remember why I love this state so much. The rest are self explanatory. Enjoy and let me know if you need any high-res's.

Thanks Cliff! you were certainly missed this year. I remember telling Kurt that this was the first year in the 7 years we've been going that you weren't there! Hopefully you can come visit next year.

This would have been the second year then, since 2003 was my first year. We'll see how my schedule shakes out next year. I will definitely want to be visiting the US in May or June though - that's wintertime where I'm going and the nice weather will be a welcome change.
