The Vintage 2015

Happy Friday!  Wait, it’s Friday already?!  With traveling and the holiday weekend, the rest of this week has flown by!  If you’re in the area, we’ll be hosting a Cruise-In this evening at the shop!  We kick things off at 6pm!  We hope you can join us!
We had an awesome trip to Winston Salem, NC!  Year after year, we have so much fun and always look forward to the next one!  I have quite a few photos to share, so let’s get right to them!  If you’d like to see the full gallery of images, please feel free to click here.   I know when I start my day with my camera surrounded by unique and historic architecture, bricks, and foliage, that it’s going to be an awesome day!

Philipp drove the van on its longest road trip to date!  We had a spot in the swap meet offering a wide variety of vintage bimmer parts!  A huge thank you to Philipp for all of his hard work during this trip!  He had a smile on his face the entire time, and just loved the experience of seeing so many awesome cars and even more awesome people at this event! In addition, we’d like to thank Nick H., John, and James for keeping the shop hopping while we were away!  We couldn’t ask for a better team of people!

Old Salem is such a great backdrop for this vintage event!

Recognize this beauty?  Yes, the gorgeous 1600 that we had the honor of restoring and building joined us on the trip!  So many people just loved seeing her!  Thanks for caravanning with us and joining us on the trip, Kevin!!!

And I can’t help but capture some of the rustic charm of the area too!

And it was so fun to see this 1991 BMW 325i coupe – another bimmer that we had the privilege of bringing back to life!   (Read more here, here, here, here, and here.  See her photoshoot here!)

This touring is always one of my favorites!  I love everything about it – color, the shape, the stunning detail…so much fun to photograph!

And this barn find is my favorite car each year!  I even told the owner!  We first saw her at The Vintage in 2011!

If you’ve met Nick S. in our office or if you’ve spoken to him on the phone when calling in, you may have heard about his own bimmer, a 1989 BMW 735i with a 5-speed.





That’s a wrap on The Vintage 2015!  Awesome cars, fantastic weather, and cool people!  Let the countdown for The Vintage 2016 begin!


Have a great weekend!
