    Hey Gents,

    I met the owner of the red 8, see above. He came up to me after I parked mine in front on his cigar shop. He shared he bought his 8 in 97 for 106K!!! We chatted for awhile and he shared nothing but gr8 things on his ride. That said, he didn't do any things crazy like you've all done (and I might try). He kept everything as is ...

    Saw a black 8 rollin' on 17" ACS in Santa Monica.

    And saw a silver 840 turning left from Pico onto La Cienega (or was it Robertson??) around 3PM.

    There are more and more E31s in the City of Angels these days than ever before it seems.

    I was picking up some parts for my car today at an auto part distributor on Lafayette Street in Santa Clara, CA when I saw a white 8-series in a neighbouring shop being worked on. I walked in and asked the tech about it and he said he was restoring it for the owner. It's a 1991 850i and the tech said that it had been sitting in storage for about 7 years and needed heaps of work done to it to bring it back to life.

    It would be nice in such cases to ask for permissions to get the VIN and a few snaps for Jud's 8er records. That would help him get over the next thousand mark.

    I spotted a Black on Black 850i with M Parallel wheels in New Westminster, BC at the IGA down near the Quay. Seen it there a few times.

    Also saw a 850i 6 speed, black on black in Coquitlam infront of a furniture store. It was pretty dirty. Might of been the same one.

    Saw a blue one in New West a few years ago driving up to Hume Park, and a Sterling Silver 1990 850i Alpina B12 clone driving in uptown New West last year. Talked to the guy and damn it's a nice car.

    And finally a black 850i with red pin stripes on both sides of the car. the guy went to my high school a couple years ago. Rumor has it that he totalled it.

    Yesterday at around 3pm i was with my cousin in my 850 driving down 12th street in New West and we spotted a white 850ci with Alberta tags and black pin stripes down the sides. The traffic was pretty bad and we were right beside him for about 10 seconds, We gave him a thumbs up and tried to wave him down to say "nice car" or somethin but he did'nt even look at us, looked like he was focusing on something ahead.
