    Thanks Jonathan. If I had the time, I would have coordinated all the caravans into 2 or 3 locations. Unforunately, every BMW forums has a few of their own.

    > There is IMO a generational gap of interests

    A friend (and youngster compared to me) who is involved with a display at Bimmerfest just referred to it as "that kids' show"

    Woody, I feel your pain, I couldn't tell a joke at volleyball last week, the youngsters(30ish),didn't know what a kamikazi was ! Its a rhetorical exercise, Why did the Kamikazi pilots wear helmets?
