After last years pretty successful E30/early BMW meet, we decided to replicate the meet but on a smaller scale. It was now 5 series oriented, since Bron and I both drive one. We had only planned on having 10-15 cars as we were both just looking to meet other e34 owners. But it quickly grew on Instagram and we knew we were getting a bigger meet then initially planned. The plan was to hold the meet at the lot behind BJ’s restaurant. However the owners were none too please. So Rose’s seemed like the best alternative. Predicably we were swiftly kicked out of there too. 🙁
@see_trees, @patrickw5 and @saeed87 e34 Instagram brethren
When I made it back to 75th after Rose’s our street was pretty packed with BMW. I was told by Mauncho this was on the light side. A few minutes earlier he was hard at work rerouting cars to Rose’s while dealing with the owner’s of BJs. All in all, in was poorly planned on our part.
@willem’s bagged M5 trailering an e30.
Unfortunately, the meet was not how we had hoped. We should have chosen a much bigger lot. We also should have made a proper back up plan (other than Rose’s). Let’s hope next year goe better.
