First year for a combination auto and motorcycle show on the developing Atlanta Beltline (former rail line being converted into hipster exercise/bar/office route). A lovely local M6 took Best of Show. Lots of folks wanted to discuss our '71. Seems like interest among potential E9 owners remains strong.

I wish I would have known guys! I’m 5-10 minutes from there. Looks like a fun event.

Don's car is beautiful and along with some pretty spectacular Porsches (Porsche Experience center was a sponsor) one of the nicest cars there. Why it didn't win I just don't know? The car that did win, an M6 was I guess a little younger looking with more modern wheels and that's about the only difference. You just never know what the judges are looking at and the experience level of said "judges".
I think one thing I have noticed is when I try to tell someone about my 3.0 CS they always think I am talking about a 6 series car. Even showing them a photo does not clarify the difference.
So I think the rarity to an untrained spectator does not mean as much as we might like. Just a thought.
So get a picture of your car next to a 6 series so you can show them how much better looking it is.

Have to be sure and make this next year and bring some friends.
