German Auto Day
26 August 2018
After an unfortunate start to the day for me with the 325is deciding not to start immediately, probably through lack of use over the winter, I had a lovely run up the various freeways from Rye to St. Kilda Road.
Arriving by 8.15 at the event, Jo and Graeme had a huge area already marked out for the BMWDCM, with the club tent, flag etc. I was lined up with the first 1/2 dozen arrivals and very quickly the area was inundated with close to 50 BMW's - E30's being the prominent model!
The events turnout was amazing, BMW's, Mercedes Benz, VW's of all shapes and sizes, one NSU and a few other variants.
Credit must go to the VW Car Club for their overall organisation of the event, site allocation, food vans, german sausage van and coffee outlet.
Having said that, the efforts put in by Jo, Graeme, Lawrence and Sharron, not only in having the BMWDCM set up and running in record time, but having the day so well organised deserves a huge thank you from what must be by now 200+ members of the BMWDCM.
