Hi Folks. There will be a Bav Auto caravan heading from T.O. at 4am on Saturday Sepember 31st and comming back Monday October 2nd.It's a 10 hour drive to Portsmouth NH.The plan is to get there by 3pm,check in,go wash cars,freshen up and then go out for dinner or whatever.Meet Sunday morning at 7am at the host motel parking lot.
http://www.metrotravelguide.com/metrotravelguidecom/hotels/availability.jsp?hotelID=8342&inDate=10/01/2006&outDate=10/03/2006&Adults=3&Children=0&requestID=8342|1159678800000|1159851600000|&trafficID=252484970

3 minute drive to Bav Auto for the Show and Shine.The Bav Auto store will be open during the Show and Shine so get your shopping list ready.Will there be any Ottawa boys comming again?It's an e12 and E28 invasion that i am planning but the invite is open to any BMW that wishes to join us.I will be hooking up with my E28 US friends down there as well.Last year we had a caravan of 4 cars and the Ottawa gang meet us down there which was great.Eddie Ribeiro can help by adding the names to the list.The time and meeting place Saturday morning will be announced at a future date.You can talk to me at the Maxbimmer show and shine this comming Sunday September 10th up at Mosport.Hope to have more info by then or ask Randy,Paul or Sean to point me out or look for my car.

I am still going.....wheeeeeeeeee.....nice.......cheers to all that is coming on this trip........

Ted in T.O.
09-18-2006, 09:23 AM
Bump again. Okay so here is the meeting place Saturday Septenber 30th at 5AM sharp.The reasons for being this early is to get to Portsmouth early enough to check in by 3pm and then get to the car wash to wash our cars before it gets dark.It's no fun washing the cars in the dark eh Sean.The meeting place is along the QEW at the *wiggle* SECOND*wiggle* Ontario Street off ramp in the Tim Horton's parking lot.The exit number is #64 and it goes into Beamsville.Turn right at the end of the ramp and you will see a 24 hour Sunoco gas station for those that want 94 octane,24 hour Macdonald's and a 24 hour Timmy's.This is a good meeting place for all those people that are comming from different direction's and its on the way to the Fort Erie boarder crossing.We are stopping at the duty free shop for refreshments,Timmy's for those that need Java and a rest stop for those that have to get rid of the previous coffee's.:D Make sure you bring your Passports with you to cross into the US.The Bav Auto store will be open on the day of the show so get your shopping list started.Bring chairs and a fully loaded camera because you will be seeing alot of sick Bimmer's both old and new.If you have any question's just post or PM me and i will try to answer them ASAP.I'm pretty sure the New York State Thruway patrol men will be watching us as a caravan of 11 plus BMW's cruise through their turf.:moon: See you all at the Timmy's before 5am Saturday morning. Ted in T.O.

PS The host hotel has Continental Breakfast every morning and there is a Dunkin donuts shop about 500m down the road.

BTW if you don't have a passport and are going to try and get one before we go down, my suggestion is go NOW! like leave the PC and get it started... Cause it takes a good long time to finally get it i know this much... In fact it may be too late now as it is, that said, you are not required to have one at this time to cross the border, checked with my dad on this one as he's a Lawyer. Also you will need to, when getting your passport need to go to a place like Black's or Costco for your passport photo, and also will need a Lawyer, teacher, or doctor as a guarentor for your passport, PM me if you need help with that as i can have my dad do that for you... Good luck all and see you soon :D

The show happens Sunday morning and goes till about 3pm max.You can either spend another night or you can do the 9 hour drive to Buffalo and then add whatever it takes you to get home from there.It's a 10 hour drive for me back to Mississauga which will put me in at 1am and that is good if your not hasseled at the boarder.I'm staying the night and enjoying the scenery,attractions,restaurants and beer in the motel parking lot.*drink* Ted

A birth certificate and a pictured form of ID(drivers licience) will get you across the boarder.

What event is this for guys? Would love to know

Hound

http://www.bavauto.com/

on the right hand side of the site there is a link to the show and shine, it's a large BMW show that happens each year, if you can make it down there for the show you have to go at least once since it attracts some SICK rides from all over the states and canada...

if you want to come make your hotel reservations NOW as we leave next weekend.

Also to translate for paul, he wants to know if anyone wants to preclean their car that he is doing his next friday night and if you want to join him and do your car to PM him.

Well the rain held off until after lunch.Had a great time and the drive down and back was great with no glitchs.A true testiment to Old School BMW's with regards to reliability.We had 20 E28's and 2 E12's of which 12 of them were side by side for the pics and we drew alot of attention.Everyone came back with some booty,great pics and memories.Attached is a link to the pics posted on the My e28.com board.I will get mine up by the end of the week. Next year we need to have more cars go down.Great to see the Ottawa and Montreal fella's again. Ted
