After 6 years in sunny and warm Phoenix we decided to move to cloudy and cool Seattle. The Pacific Northwest is a great place with seasons, rain and cool days. Of course, we moved here and the area promptly had the longest hottest dry spell in almost 100 years.
One of the first weekends I spent in Seattle I was able to catch the annual Puget Sound BMWCCA’s Concours event. This event featured numerous classic BMWs all in incredible shape (look for a post in the near future). The classic 3.0CSL below was one of just eight in the show. Yes, eight 3.0 CSLs in one location–a first for me in all of the years of doing car shows.
Many other older classic BMWs were in attendance at this amazing show. Have I wet your interest in that future post and photo gallery yet?
Another popular car spot in our area is the Triple XXX Drive-In. Every single weekend this place has a car show almost all year. Every visit was filled with new and different cars from Mini Coopers to 1960/1970 muscle cars and rat rods to choppers. This custom rat rod below was one of the most impressive. I also plan on a few posts and photo galleries from this car hangout also.
On a side note, we are thinking about getting another BMW after 13 years. Yes, Mini’s are technically BMWs but they don’t wear the Roundel. Stay Tuned to see if Seattle area dealers can come through…
