Man, I just crashed when I got home at 9:00pm last night...Slept through until this morning. In fact I just woke up and showered.

Again, Jon ROCKS. I will be buying my BMW from Cutter from now on, the roads and scenaries around S.B is just simply amazing and it'd certainly be worth the trek up to pick up a bimmer.

A few thoughts: It was great seeing the Seattle crowd, meeting in_d_haus (didn't have a chance last year), meeting JonM again, and meeting RKT BMR. Saw Kempe for the first time in 2 years. Met up with a whole bunch of guys that I usually hang around with at SCTS, met up with a whole bunch of vendors. Leif made an appearance.

I want to know, if anyone took picutres of Ceanna (skinny, young brunette handing out A-OK raffle tickets) so we can finally post pictures of her for NickK. All I can say is, I finally understood his obsession...Damn she has a nice set of Xenons.

I had an awesome time, and the food was excellent. I was disappointed that I had to leave early and couldnt participate in the road rally, but nonetheless, it was really fun. I look forward to next year's bimmerfest.

btw, there were 2 hot chicks that was working, some persian girl and a hot brunette. which one are you guys talking about? cuz they were both hot!

Read through this thread, and you'll understand.

She's the shorter, younger one of the two ladies working raffles.

If you are talking about the Carbon Black ACS M3 Cab,
you are taking about "Samantha", one of our very own
Bimmerfest.com members. That was the car that was
originally owned by Orangemarlin (that I drove in the
Road Rally last year).

Lily was the girl with Ceanna selling raffle tickets.
AFAIK, she has a BF.

LOL, I WISH!!! It took me just about 4 hours -- yes, 4 hours to get to Santa Barbara from Irvine, leaving at 1:00 pm. The transition from the 405 to the 101 was dreadful, the construction on the 101 near Ventura was also no fun, and traffic coming into the Santa Barbara area was the icing on the cake

Then, going home on Saturday it took me another 3 hours. Stop and go on the 405 all the way from the 101 to the 105

Roadsterwench, it was nice meeting you!

Your Z3 (with that custom LeatherZ interior) was great...

You dog was really cute too.

Is it the same breed as "Toto" from the Wizard of Oz?

doh! too bad Chad! (hey... that rhymed.... )

Is "Samantha" her real name as well as her handle? I remember her yelling at someone to pick up some trash they thew on the ground at the Los Olivos area...

Nice to meet you, to Jon. I had a great time; just the driving part was a pain. I like driving, but not bumper-to-bumper. I loved seeing all the BMW's, especially the roadsters

And of course it's fun to show off one's own car, and cute puppy. By the way, she's a Pyrenean Shepherd (as in the Pyrenees, in France). I don't know what Toto is

Thanks for all your hard work in putting together a great event! I hope Cutter's facility didn't take too much of a beating. I know my puppy was well-behaved -- the only thing she caused damaged to were some tasty Cutter sticks she found among the shrubs

I doubt I'll be able to make it next year -- unless you can take a special request and make bimmerfest coincide with UT Austin's Spring Break. But maybe the year after that, if I can get a permanent job in So. Cal. If you know any chairmen of philosophy departments or deans of law schools in So. Cal., feel free to hook me up

Ha ha! I noticed that too.
BTW, thanks for the hat Scott. I wonder if I will see other bimmerfest members sporting there hat around LA. I'm going to make it my most frequently worn hat and hopefully will see other members around town.

It was nice meeting you Roadsterwench, and everyone else (especially Jon!) - I had a few people say to me, "oh, you must be 'car_for_mom!"; others instantly recognized my screen name as soon as I said it.

I met quite a few folks from Loyola Marymount; I was wearing an LMU shirt!

Yep, Roadsterwench, it was stop and go on the 101 all the way to the 134; lots o' folks on the 210 East all the way to the 71 South for me! Man, I wish the 210 had a FastTrak Lane (the only way to fly, er, drive to the People's Republic of Irvine from the 91! )

Well, they must have been workin' him, 'cause when we passed him he was smiling, waving, and giving the thumbs up

right here man.... I felt the same way... I was a lowly 330ci in a sea of M3s..... but hey.... I look at it this way.... it makes us non M drivers "different" as opposed to "lemmings"
Doe, all you need is a blower. Puts the M3's in a diferent light, and gives you the added cachet of having a "sleeper car"

This was my third fest, and it was the best! With 170 cars, the rally is getting a bit ungainly, but it was still fun. The portion of the event at Cutter was extraordinary

From a driving perspective, the Bay Bimmerz caravan from the SF Bay Area was killer. 32 bimmers, 3's, 5's, 7's, all snaking down 101 in a coordinated fashion (we had radios and radar detectors all up and down the line), cruising at 90-100 for some good long, straight stretches... Truly the ultimate driving experience with the ultimate driving machine and the ultimate driving buddies

Finally though, the best part of the whole weekend was meeting my online buds... Haus, LeatherZ, ScottN2Retro, Cliff3, Steve, Dave, Janine, Kim, Kaz, Hack, Plaz, Doeboy, Raffi, Roadsterwench, and so many others!

bimmerfest.com simply puts Roadrash, er, ToadFly, er, whatever the heck that other board is called, to shame.

Viva la Bimmerfest!

Just slightly? First time I saw that pic, I didn't even notice I was in the shot

Highlight of the morning - being attended to by 3 of the lovely ladies at Cutter


For my trip home, I bypassed the 101/405 and took Topanga Canyon on a night run and had fun pulling off to the side, letting this Integra type R go out a ways and then reeling him in (but being the trail car, I was at a huge advantage at night once I had him in view). But still fun.


Anybody have an estimate on the number of cars in the road rally?

Vista Point CHP

This is my maiden voyage on this site so bear with me. I just want the 5 series contingency to know that I really enjoyed their hospitality at the Vista Point. When I showed up in the black/white I (like them) didn't know what to expect but once we got to talking about BMW's we had a great time. Regarding the scanner traffic and the CHP "looking" for you guys, not true. It was more for our info. We have had problems in the past (100+ speeds) but none that I know of this time around. At the end of the run by the 3 series guys, I again got to meet some nice folks who happened to pull into the Vista Point. The EVOsport guys were great, Dan (unknown last name) with the Supercharged M5 revving to about 10 grand! was entertaining, as were all the people who welcomed me. Thanks for making my work day enjoyable and I look forward to being a participant with one of my 4 BMW's next year!

Hey, maybe next year you can stop by and be our official ESCORT!

Glad to see no one got busted by the authorities...
