I'll bring a 1:18 Imola model and stand holding it like a jackass.

Or I'll just stand next to Andy's car with him.

Count that 2 for Maddux (JonM and AndyM)

Edit: Hate to say it, but someone should post this on the Toadfly Coupe Board. Then again, a Bimmerfest Coupe only photo may be better.

A reply from Kenn Sparks

Hello Arslan,

Great to hear from you. Can't say how many coupe's will be in attendance this year. This registration only asks whether one is coming in a Z3 or Z4. Last time we did a coupe panorama in front of Zentrum we had 20 or 25. I believe that was two years ago. I don't know how many came last year.

By the way you are certainly welcome to do your coupe' photo here on site if you wish, just let us know. The coupe's are very much revered by many of us in BMW. They are a highly distinctive machine and I'm proud that we made them even in very limited quantities. I have an M Coupe' that gives me much pleasure to drive.

All the best and looking forward to seeing you,

Kenn

I e-Mailed the photographer. He is out of town right now and will respond upon return. I think its prudent to have a count of as many definite coupes as possible so he can plan. I have as of today 12 confirmed. Will keep this post current as I find out more. Ask Ken to bring his coupe.!

Kenn is brining his MC too!

Kenn Sparks says...

I would recommend doing it [taking the photograaph] in front of or on one of the sides of Zentrum...always makes for a sharp background. In fact we used the lawn on the entrance side of Zentrum for the last coupe' shot two years ago. I'll check and see which venue would be open and available on that Saturday. And I would be most honored to be part of the photo.

Thank-you

Kenn


So as you can see, we can add one more Coupe to the list

I've posted this on Roadfly based on your suggestion:

Wow, I'm honored to be included...

However, I don't quite own a Coupe yet...so I'm going to have to bow out. If I do purchase a coupe soon there's a chance I'll be there, though.

Not my call, since I'm not a Coupe'r (just a Coupe'r wannabe) but I think you should cover Kenn's photo (including framing) and donate it to him. It might even wind up on display in the Zentrum.

Yep, I'd pony up my part of Ken's bill too.

Wonder if we could get them to roll out the LeMans prototype coupe to be featured in the pic? That would own.

Bob (and others)

I've e-mailed Kenn again asking if it's possible to roll out the LeMans Prototype MC for our picture. If not, if we could get a special glimpse of it up close with bonnet and doors open.

Will let you know what he says. Fingers crossed

Just as an update, I thought you should check the "sticky" on Roadfly on the Coupe photo:

Roadfly sticky

Nice to know there are lots of people to share the cost with

It's funny but for me it's sort of like Christmas Eve when I was five years old. (the morning of the departure for the convoy to HC) Guess I need to get a life in certain ways...

Another e-mail from Kenn Sparks

Hello Arslan,

Can't say for sure about the LeMans Coupe, it's a bit tricky to move. But we can certainly arrange for everyone to get a good look at it and maybe as a special just for the coupe owners, each of you guys can have a photo made sitting in the driver's seat...how's that?

We'll work out the details when you arrive. See you soon.

Kenn
