I am a second year member but have had little interaction with the CCA. I'm beginning to wonder if I am just not a good fit for this group. Please don't flame me as I'd love to find a way to make it work. I am 58 years old and disabled due to heart failure. I drive a lowered, 2002 325CI with a body kit and TSW 18" wheels (see sig) with less than 70K miles on it. I now understand why BMW calls their cars "The Ultimate Driving Machine". I love my Bimmer. I am a car guy who has restored many cars in my lifetime. Those days are behind me now. I have been a member of several Car Clubs in the past mostly Buick related. I have been in charge of our local chapter's very succesful annual car show and even had a couple years stint as chapter director. I have participated in National car shows as well. I bought my Bimmer to have a nice daily driver that sees little use and a lot of pampering. I have attended 2 local events here in Washington and found the crowd to be exclusively made up of 20 something kids who are very friendly but other than BMWs we have nothing in common. And they don't spend much time talking about their cars. I read my Roundel cover to cover every month and see many of the contributors have as much gray hair as I do so where are you hiding? Am I driving the wrong car? If I have to step up to new 6 series to be around people my age, it isn't in the cards. Help me out here as I am searching for answers.
