    Upon the departure of our friend Dan Collins from our Chapter, it left a vacancy in the seat for newsletter editor.

    With much excitement and honor, I'd like to introduce myself to the group as your new editor. I plan on trying to do everything in my power to keep it entertaining and informative, so if you have any questions comments or concerns, do get back to me. I'm a great listener.

    Let's make the sandlapper chapter the best dog gone chapter out there!

    Hello MrsBee, just read your latest newsletter and just wanted to say hello from this corner of the chapter. Welcome aboard. I appreciate your efforts to inject some life into the party and wish you success. We have tried to start meetings in the Aiken area and they went on for a while but fizzled. Not sure if folks were just to busy or lacked interest. I belong to the Concours Owners Group (http://cog-online.org) and COG seems to have a very active forum with lots of events on the various calendars. Well, all that said, I felt compelled to find your post and at least provide reply. Will look forward to you future newsletters. Tony Waters

    I don't think you count tony, I've already introduced myself to you, in person!

    Where the heck is everyone else?

    Hmmm, I know I'd remember that. I haven't been to the Greenville area in a couple of years. When did we meet in person?

    -> open hand slap forehead

    Wrong Tony, sorry for the confusion. I swear, I'm the worst with names. If it were up to me, everyone would have to wear a name tag at all times, although I should talk, my name isn't even Mrs. Bee.

    What's your personalized license plate? "THE TARD" or "MRS BEE"? ;)

    And I thought I was the trophy winner for avatar changes - averaging about three times a week!

    I guess it doesn't help me much, the avatar change that is, but hey, we can't all be so self centered and put our mugs in our avatars like me either.

    As far as personalized licence plates, way back when I was a young snap, my criminal parents always ingrained in my head "Never EVER stand out more than you need to, don't draw attention because if ever you're involved in some crime it will make you more memorable." Thus I keep random state given plate.

    The most "unique" part of the tard are the bumble bee valve stem covers. Of course I got a bit of crud about them in the last concours, but oh well. Let them drink draino if it bothers them so much.

    I guess if I fly by a speed trap at 80 mph, the license plate would not make much difference in my little Bee...

    However, if I were to drive the Bee in NYC, I'd blend right in with the Taxi fleet. :)

    Hmmm, that's what the escort is for (or valentine I suppose) to stay out of speed traps like that.


    Just be careful when you pick up in your supposed "taxi". You could end up in trouble, if you know what I mean.

    Left my ray gun back in Jersey in '91... Driving in The North East without a detector is suicide.
    I imagine you can find a way to get crossways with the law here in Texas, but you would have to
    be going pretty hard at it to get their attention.

    I personally like a car that is small and can fit conveniently in the palm of my hand... tard.jpg

    More like droid meets the One
    In the background, that is the mecca of all bmw-ness in America, the zentrum, located right here in lovely south Carolina. Just on an afternoon drive, we decided to go check out the new roads that my beau designed for the expansion projects out there. On a whim we decided to get a photo shoot with the One and the zentrum in the background. Funny enough, as we were playing photo shoot, two other cars pulled up and did the same thing.

    I love seeing people so passionate about their cars. :-D

    Thank you kindly! That's pretty rocking, actually all of the Zentrum pics were done in a feeble attempt at trying to get a better mug shot for me to accompany my Roundel Weekly pieces. I wasn't exactly prepared - but of course, the "One" is always photogenic.

    On the way out we saw the "ElectroTard" plugged in all by itself in the vast expanse of a parking lot that is BMW Manufacturing in Greer. It was interesting to crawl underneath and see no exhaust and the huge difference in the structure compared to my car. IMAG0617.jpg IMAG0619.jpg

    One of our many perks. And the PC makes for a nice autocross. :)
