    Default E34 gathering in North Carolina?

    Anybody out there in North Carolina interested in forming a small group of E34 owners? I'm located near Apex, NC. Let me know.

    Thanks,

    Michael

    I'm in Apex (off Olive Chapel), ScottyWM is close by, there are actually probably 5-10 folks on here in the Wake County area. I believe Andyman32 was trying to organize something earlier this year, but we never followed through.

    My wife's E34 is an Oxfordgrun 525i, 1995. With dents in the right door from where my ramps fell on it.

    I'd be up for a meet, perhaps at Carolina Brewery in Holly Springs one Saturday at noon, then have a sampling of their wares then maybe grab a bite out. Or perhaps meet in downtown Apex for dinner one night at La Rancherita, park on the street? Thoughts?

    I'm game, I just need notice as I am in Pinehurst for now (building a house in Pittsboro soon). I can always stay in Raleigh for the weekend, I just gotta know which one.
    Ah yes, the old Saturday afternoon CBC watering hole in Holly Springs. Its been a while for me due to my newborn, but I sure miss that weekend sabatical. I think I know the tour speach by heart.

    I'd be interested in getting together. Tomorrow I'm going up to VIR to watch some friends at a driving school, so Apex would be out. But maybe some other time, or we could meet up there.

    Yep, we need to get together. Would an E30 be outlawed? Spouses invited? Toddlers? I'm sure wifey would want to bring her E34 herself, since it is HERS...um, wait, who washes, waxes, and maintains it? Oh yes, me, her personal mechanic.

    Default VIR weekend

    The Sports Car Vintage Racing Association (SVRA) race is scheduled for Oct. 15-17. This is a great spectator event if you like the older race cars. I've gone the last two years, with the kids, and had nothing but fun. Would this work for a get together?

    I can offer a gathering place in the country. BillB and Michael ('95-525i) have been out here to the "BMW Farm". Of course, VIR is always at the top of my list as far as car-related places to visit too!

    If you're just looking for an open space to park some cars, maybe do some minor wrenching and major BS'ing, the farm is perfect. We could cookout or run to the local BBQ joint for some food for those interested.

    Just throwing out an idea.

    Count me in! I haven't been around here much in the last 1-2 months b/c my car has been in the shop... I think we finally found the source of the dreaded shimmy!! I should be getting it back next week.
    I live in Raleigh near Lake Wheeler.... Just name the time and place.

    Sure, count me in. 'Course haven't even washed it since about March what with all this crappy weather. And not sure I could keep up with all you young guys! Bryan, we've probably passed each other, I'm off 1010 here in Middle Creek. Look for the dirty gold touring - all the windows and sunroofs open and classic rock blastin'.

    I'm in Greenville, but would be interested in a get together sometime, maybe in October when the weather calms down.
