OK classic Bimmer fans -- after reading Bo Black's "True Friends" article in the April Roundel, are you ready to drive your BMW from the 20th century onto the twisting back roads of the Ozarks? I've been to five of the Midamerica '02 fests -- the comradship is unbelievable. Most of the BMW driver's participating come from the flatlands in the heart of these great United States, so the opportunity to drive twisting roads with plenty of elevation. You can read Bo's article about the attractive venue that Eureka Springs provides us, but for a BMW driver, the road sign on US 62 a few miles west of the town tells us what we need to know: "Next 3 miles twisty and steep, drive with caution." So you don't have a 2002, or your 2002 is up on jackstands, or you once had a classic BMW, or wish you had a classic BMW. In 2003 I came in my wife's E30 when my 2002 was in the shop for an engine overhaul. We've had members come with E21, E30 and E46 three series Bimmers and one former 2002 owner from Wisconsin came with his '77 Porsche 911. We have attracted BMW drivers from 15 different States, but this coming year Bo anticipates greater participation from Texas and Iowa. I hope to be there, but I have to take care of a stuck brake caliper in my early '71 2002 and adapt my schedule to a work committment.
