I’ve been wanting to do a colors poster after the original was abruptly discontinued before I could get my hands on one. This project has been years in the making and I’m happy to finally offer it with the details and colors as accurate and authentic as possible. Every color was matched to the correct year and series 1600 or 02, right down to the correct wheel, trims and bumpers. From the early 1600 to the later US and Euro sqauretails, there is a nice mixture that includes the Turbo, Touring, Baur and Convertibles. Limited Quantity
The print comes in 24″x17″ or 36″x24″. Available now in our store, elefant print
The annual Bay Area Swap & Meet show has come and gone again. This is one of my favorite shows of the year and one I always make sure I attend and support. The first show was in 2001 and was located at the El Camino Park in Palo Alto. It was there that I started looking for a perfect 02 for my M2 project. What I found was life long friends and great memories.
Huge thanks to Derek, Larry and the rest of the BA gang for keeping the show going after all these years. Until next year, here are some pictures from the past week.

This year’s Bimmerfest was held right outside of the Rose Bowl stadium. A tip for anyone going next year is to come early! We did and barely had to wait in line. Even at 630am the line of cars outside the gates started to pile up.
This was personally my first time attending Bimmerfest and I was pleased with the amount of cars and people that made a showing. It seemed that no matter what time you looked out the gate, people were waiting to park and get it. The field was filled with people almost elbow-to-elbow in the vendor section. The vendor area was great if you wanted to see new products being offered, from wheels, to racing hardware, to wax for the shine. Dealerships were on hand to showcase the newest BMW models fresh from the lot. Surrounding the vendors was a complete circle of BMWs, new and old. This is where the real enthusiasts were at. SoCal Vintage had a strong showing cars that attracted the on-lookers. It was my favorite place to be. Even though we were there for few hours, we didn’t get a chance to see every single car, but we did see a few gems here and there. They definitely stood out from the crowd. To prove it, check out Mike Burroughs’ BMW powered rat-rod.
Even if you weren’t a BMW fan and was dragged out to go, this show would definitely make you one. I’m already a fan, but I appreciate them even more. It’s great to see all the BMW enthusiasts get together for some good times, catching up with old friends, and putting forum names to faces. Until next year…
Here are a few more cars I want to share with the Elefant Supply followers. I know you guys and gals would appreciate these most. If you want to check out more photos, click the link below.
