You're talking about a People's Choice style event Matt, that's a competition for your catagory, whichever that may be.

I swear evertime i suggest something, everyone is like no, bad idea sorry bro


you would have catagories, like best daily, dirtiest, m3, early late etc.

you think people are not going to wash cars to compete for dirtiest?

Its just fun to add something to the show, I always here people asking, how the featured cars got chosen...

I like the idea, but if I may offer a different point of view.

The first two years I went to the picnic I did not have a special E30 in any way. 4 door 325i with bottle caps. Now it has some unique stuff, but here is what I love seeing at the picnic:

How people treat their E30 just because.

Be that dirty, clean, tracked, pimped, barely surviving, or swapped. And I love the attitude that all E30's are welcome. Not "All are welcome, but we'll stick the shitty ones over there". This is why I've never thought segregation of E30's was a good idea. Come as you are, park as you are. Now that's a little bit of an aside, but having awards for even "the shittiest" can only serve to influence people to change their E30 specifically for the picnic.

Perhaps if the awards were things that a person couldn't easily effect, like the "Highest mileage E30" that would be cool. It's cool because it also caters to the illogical pride we have for these cars

Okay, that was a bit more than I intended to say.

I don't remember saying that, just clarified the aspect of a competition

If you want to be a feature car, contact Lance directly.

There is usually a highest mileage award. Furthest traveled, youngest and oldest owners, newest owner (couple years ago it was a car purchased AT the picnic). There was a lowest award one year etc.

Not things that are matters of opinion. That gets messy, sloppy, and time consuming. It also would detract from what the picnic is designed for, enthusiasts of any walk. There are other car 'shows' that do what you are speaking of. The picnic isnt a car show, more of a meet & greet with a lil show & tell on the side by default.

edit: Can I put my car in my 5 months old's name to win said youngest owner award? teehee

Guys, thanks for the feedback.

The Featured Cars generally represent stories that I come across that I think will interest the group. If we had the time, we'd pass the mic around to the whole group and hear about each car, because each car has a story. But we don't have the time, so I pick 4 or 5.

If the story is about a restoration, then the car might be in great condition. But more often, the car is probably "average" but the car and/or owner has an interesting story to tell. At least in my opinion, and so long as I'm running the show, I pick the Featured Cars.

But I am open to suggestions.

That being said, I've got the Featured Cars confirmed for this year.

How is parking for non E30's. My M3 is having some of the interior done; know way it will be complete in time! I am however thinking of bringing another flared fender beast out.

Thanks,

Tyler

There is general parking for non-E30s at the Main entrance to LeMay. The E30s go past the main entrance to the secondary "Marymount" entrance. Same as last year.
