Happy Friday! It's the start of a holiday weekend, and what would be more fun than starting it off by joining us tonight for the Cruise-In? Drive on in starting at 6pm! Since Labor Day Weekend usually means cookouts with friends and family, celebrating the end of summer, and car shows, I thought we'd do just that...talk about car shows! Last Saturday in downtown Carmel, Hoosier BMW
proudly represented by having the largest car corral present with 22 cars at Carmel Artomobilia
! GO BMW!
Thanks to Ben for putting this great event together, and thanks to the Hoosier BMW Chapter for such a wonderful turn out! Despite the heat, everyone had a fun time!
Here is a slideshow with all the of the BMWs in the corral, parked in an amazing area along Rangeline Road in downtown Carmel:
Since it was so warm out and Reggie and I are just 18 days away from the expected arrival of our little one, I stayed in the shade as much as possible! I handed the camera over to Reggie - he captured some awesome images of this event! Here are some of my favorites, plus a slideshow with his entire gallery of images!
The immaculate 1985 BMW 735i in our corral had a mere 7,800 miles on it - it was a sight to see! Amazing interior, amazing paint, and even more amazing was under the bonnet...a Callaway turbo kit! This bimmer will be in attendance at Hoosier BMW's Vintage Car Show on Saturday, September 8th at Eagle Creek. More on this event in a moment!
Next weekend is the Hoosier BMW Chapter's
