Talking Vote on Potential Starting points for the Glendale/Burbank Caravan

This is a 2 part Poll:

Part 1: Vote on starting point
Part 2: Tell me whether you prefer a mostly freeway route or mostly surface streets route.

I complied a list of 3 locations that would make a good start for the caravan to the Rose Bowl. Please vote. Below I have included my top reason for choosing each potential site.

1. Glendale High School: 1440 East Broadway, Glendale, CA 91205

Nice size parking lot & close to the 134 and 2 Fwy's.

2. Eagle Rock plaza: 2828 Colorado Blvd. Los Angeles, CA 90041

Nice size parking lot & close to the 134 and 2 Fwy's.

3. Office Depot: 515 W. Broadway Blvd. Glendale CA 91203

Decent size parking lot. Close to the 5 & 134 fwy's.

Nah no worries. I have a back up. If this doesnt work out I'll be with a small group of about 6 to 8 Bimmers cruising together. We may just head out early and come in with the valley crew.

Thanks for the offer though

The rally point is officially Glendale High School. The security guard there also drives a BMW and he's going to unlock the gates for us and roll with us to Bimmerfest.

I've told some of my friends to meet there starting at 7:00 AM, and we head out by 8:00 / 8:15 AM. (Gates at the Bowl open at 9:00) Let me know if you guys think this is too early or late.

So far it looks like my group is going to be about 4 to 5 Bimmers and maybe 1 Mini.

I was thinking about taking Colorado through Eagle Rock to Pasadena as well.

A run through Descanso would be nice, but I've got peeps committed to the GHS run so I can't change it up. Good choice by the guys in the m3forum. Should make a nice run from there.

So far so good. I've had a couple of people flake on me so far....so if the numbers dwindle too low before 'fest, I'll let everyone left know to just meet at the Sbux in La Canada Flintridge and we all just roll together from there with the M3Forum guys.

So far so good...as long as you dont mind a ghetto bimmer joining you lol

Ghetto Bimmer: My 528i

Reason I classify it as a Ghetto Bimmer:

My front and back bumpers had some nasty corner damage due to it being hit by a hit n run accident when I was out of town for the weekend. The replacement bumpers won't be here untill AFTER Bimmerfest so rather than drive with 2 holes in my car...I did a half-assed bondo repair/ touch up paint on them myself over the weekend.

The result:

You can tell the back bumper is hit by the exhaust pipe if you stand at about 15ft or closer.
You can tell the front bumper was poorly repaired under the passenger side fog light because it's not smooth at all and still indented (I ran out of bondo lol)

I'll have pix up later tonight to show what it looked and looks like right now.

Once the bumpers arrive, all will be restored to its natural beauty
