Bonus!! BMW was featured at the
Historics Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion powered by Burger King Wall Street at Laguna Seca last weekend, so though I haven’t been in many years I had to go because I do love these cars. It helps to see so many out in the wild, it’s motivational for the ones I currently have. Of course, I went prepared to represent the LALDLyfe... enjoy!
There were, of course, plenty of miniature wallet-emptiers on offer, most at obscene event markups. This is only a small portion. The diecast truck was pretty cool, both sides were filled, plus standalone shelves on both sides,filled with HW, MBX, M2s, Autoworlds, and more.
The coolest thing was, when I was taking shots with the little cars not only did my 4 year old daughter love it, but passers-by loved it! I got loads of compliments from people who thought it was super cool to pair the toy cars with real ones. You’ve already seen the Alfa pics, that led to a 15 minute conversation with a guy who had a 2002 and 240Z, and lusts after the GTV like I do. A professional photographer saw me taking the picture with the Group 5 320i and insisted on shooting me while I shot it. So many others commented positively, it was really cool. We’re not alone!
Next time I make it I’ll have to plan better and bring a case of cars that are likely to be there. I have lots of in-focus shots of the real cars too, if anyone is interested. Thanks for looking!
