WagonFest II - THE Thread!

well, waiting for a LONG page to print, adobe acrobat all stuck, and at earl's (palantirion's) little hint...might as well get something productive going.

1st one was on 6/17...it was certainly a blast. time perhaps for a sequel? while it's obviously convenient for the socal guys/gals, any of you out-of-towners, with time on their hands and a wagon want to join us? redshift??? i'm sure between a few of us we'd be happy to buy the out of staters a few meals at the very least.

for a recap of sorts, here are the pertinent threads

1. https://www.bimmerfest.com/forums/sho...ight=wagonfest

2. pic threads...
https://www.bimmerfest.com/forums/sho...ight=wagonfest

https://www.bimmerfest.com/forums/sho...ight=wagonfest

nothing is set in stone. here are some random thoughts as to time and location...once a yr is fine, twice a year max, so this is the 'halfway' meet, so to speak.

day: i think a saturday is ideal. a mid am meet, followed by lunch, and a SAFE caravan/drive.

september: TOO soon
october: 1st few weekends
november: 1st few weekends
december: too busy
january: may be very workable
february etc...a little too far out

location: anyone up for taking over the crystal cove promenade? ( lemme see...20 e39 540it for ONE porsche carrera gt.)

-or how about anyone who can get either the bmwcca or an enthusiast friendly bmw dealership? just a thought.

-we recently visited craig park in brea. it is one beautiful place, lots of parking, not to mention picturesque. i'm in fact planning on taking a late pm drive there soon to take some pics.

it'd be nice if we can make a better effort to reach the other body style tourings- e34, and even the e61.

of course, open to tourings, and touring lovers alike.

please post away - suggestions, objections, whatever.

btw, checking the roster, 11 tourings showed up. to those who promised to show up and didnt (liars , lazybums , latecomers , lowlifes , looselips ) please be there!

jack

ps. above insults and invectives for purely entertainment purposes only. if it offended you, well, never mind.

ps2: i've taken the liberty to post this invite on the e61, e34, e46 and e90 side for our fellow banarian motoring wagoneers.

ps3: any of you know fellow wagonuts, please tell them, ie, on other boards.

ps4: obviously, if there is no interest, this thread will die in solitude!!!

I really think catching/joining the Crystal Cove car show in the early a.m. would be awesome. And I'm not an a.m. type of person The show is great and so is the food. From there we could take a drive up or down PCH (maybe down is better?) Just thinking out loud. November is pretty open for me. I will probably be up at Buttonwillow on the 11th or 12th. Other than that I'm free. The cool autumn air might be a nice contrast to a warm summer meet.

Count Me In!

Hi Jack, it's me Jack!

Count me in if we put this together in the weekends of early November. I, like you, have too much going on right now and next month too. I may be able to do October sometime, but it's more of a strech for me then for sure.

I really am looking forward to meeting fellow touring enthusiasts and gaining valuable insight on new ways to part with my money. (read drool on rides other than mine already improved from stock)

alright everyone.

been out of commission with all sorts of things. BUT...

in the next few weeks when my sked lightens up, i am going to spam all you touring owners who have not responded.

2 possibilities...

1. if we get a showing like w'fest I, of 15-20 plus tourings with another caravan of other cars, then we'll probably shoot for january for more time to plan and fight over the minutiae.

2. if this fizzles out and only 5 pple respond - we may just have an informal clique of half a dozen cars show up one sat am at crystal cove just for fun.

The 22nd is out - we rescheduled it for one week later - Weekend of the 29th. More details to follow, for now - leave the Glendale area about 2 or 3 PM Friday and drive home Sunday after breakfast.....the rest to be fleshed out....Some talk about staying in St Helens (wherever that is!)

So far it looks like:

Jack (aw/irsmg02)
Smokin e39
thaichi808
touring dude

and antgli will meet us somewhere along the line.....

Who's up for it???
Raff
Mark 7
Jeever
TGee
AI
Kady/ Malken

Just because we call it Wagonfest, doesn't mean you HAFTA bring a wagon, any BMW is Okie Dokie with us Wagon types! Just get out and drive!

And anyway James has more pictures than I do, but I'm not sure he knows how to upload them......
I'll do it tonight.

What new E30?????
And if you do that it won't be a wagonfest (unless 1 more wagon shows up - Since Napa I've decided that the minimum number of wagons for a Wagonfest is 2!)

Yeah, we are selling my wife's C240, she's getting the wagon and I got a '87 325is. As soon as I get some time I'll post the saga...
