Hi all, My name is Gary. Just purchased our first BMW, a 1997 Z3 roadster convertible. I'm a DIY Jeep Wrangler guy, but my wife Lori and I decided we wanted a little convertible roadster to have some weekend fun in as well. We are from Lakeville MA, and my wife works with BMWCCA member #7 (Joe Chamberlin). We're excited to enjoy the top down experience in the 5-speed stick. We have a daughter, Caitlin. We also have two rescued cats, and two bloodhound puppies (5 months). Looking forward to getting a lot out of this site and forum!
