On a hot Summer’s day, BMW owners from all over New England came together to look at, talk about, and admire the vehicles of BMW. From the humble Isetta and Mini to the Powerful M5, M6, and the flagship seven series cars. Over 50 years of BMW cars were on hand. Some of the unique cars were: a bright orange 2002, a beautifully restored 1973 3.0 CS, two I8s one black the other white, and the M6 Competition. Some of my favorite cars were here: a 1971 2002, a 1989 M3, a 2004 M3 Coupe, a 1999 M5, and the new M2. All of which I would be happy to keep in my garage if anyone needs winter storage.
One of my favorite cars is on display as part of the Marque of Excellence exhibit. Along with amazing cars like the BMW M1, the Porsche 962 and 959 (which is another article) and a wall mounted BMW i3.
One of the more exciting cars was the BAUR convertibles. These cars were made during the convertible ban in the US during the late 70’s and early 80’s. BMW partnered with the coachbuilder BAUR. To build a convertible with a full rollbar incorporated into the chassis. For more information about these unique cars check out: www.baurspotting.blogspot.com
I the end over 300 BMWs showed up for the event. I enjoyed talking with the various owners who are passionate about their cars. Thank you, Lars Anderson, for another great lawn event and stay tuned for more articles about some of the cars from this show.
