The Vintage 2016

Has anyone ever been to the Vintage in North Carolina before. Anyone heading down this year? Thinking of going but haven't made my mind up yet. If my wife goes I will trailer the E30 down, if not would love to caravan down with fellow Chicago E30 crowd.

Thumbing thru our copy of the Roundel that came today and showed the wife the advert for The Vintage. The wheels are turning here to see if a road trip is in the cards for us!

Was think of camping. Any campers out there? Looks like there will be a special E30 campers section at hot springs camp grounds. It would be tent camping but I may have my son drive the jeep and pop up down with me.

Get a double trailer to tow mine so I can drive my jeep and camper down. No one in my family has any interest so looks like I miss out this year.

This event is awesome. Look through the website's documentation for previous years. Can't go wrong.

Not too many events you are going to see 360+ vintage BMWs in one spot. 108 e30s are registered and bound to go up!

Just ordered several parts from Blunt. Should be able to fix my cooling system issues and will have a backup shift selector for when my shitty welding fails and tries to leave me stranded.

God damn, too many vintage threads. maybe we should all use the southeast sticky? maybe?

Gonna do an oil change, wash her up and I think I'm ready!!!
My dads RV is all ready to roll, even tested the heat and hot water today and all is good.
My FIL came home early from Florida so we now have a free car dolly for the trip!!!



Anyone need anything brought down as spares/parts to sell/body to be disposed of/etc let me know! Should have plenty of room. You'll just have to get it too my house by Wednesday night.
