@GolfBavaria, do it! Take the Northern of the routes on that map. Will be cooler temperature-wise.
Yeah not much longer and still drops into Nashville....it's temping, whole new car, new 3.5L motor, everything gone through...I may be in Idaho then, but even so, won't add too much time, even more Northern route that I could take, always wanted to go. I'll keep looking to see if it is a go for sure!

You could bring your Golf Bavaria to your Golf Club :cool:

2,312 miles = 34hrs...........Hmmmmmmmmmm From this view it practically looks like a straight shot!!! At 8 hours a day, that's 4.25 days one way. But I will get to see Nashville and finally see my Great Grandfather's old property in Hendersonville, NC. Now "Cummings Cove" (named after him).....Hmmmmmmmm. What do you think turnout will be and %percentage% of it actually happening? That's a long way for a MAYBE it'll happen!!!.....

Anyone familiar with Cummings Cove? Always wanted to check it out.

I've always wondered about that "Golf" color name. I understand a lot of the other colors, Tundra (green Tundra), Baikal (blue Lake Baikal), off white snow (Chamonix), etc. To me, if BMW was referring to a Golf course, I think of grass is GREEN. But I see the "Golf" color of my car and others as "Yellow." I see a green tint..... sure. Not a fly "yellow" Ferrari color by any means.

Any other ideas of the origin of that color? Please enlighten me, because although I am yellow/green color blind, "golf course grass is freaking GREEN" is not freakin YELLOW!!!!!! YEEEEELLLLLLOW!!!!!!!! HELLO!!!! What am I missing here? Crazy Germans smoking 1973 shitty green weed? LOL! Thinking it's YELLOW?

Weird, all same 070 code....one says Green ('79) all the rest Yellow (how I see it). Same Dupont code and everything. Comments all say "Golf Yellow." I agree with that, even after calling it "Green" in ('79). Not definitive at all. More questions than answers, but where did they (BMW) think that GOLF is YELLOW? All the other colors seem to have some hint to real colors in the real world, not just random names.......on my engine bay sticker, it doesn't say "Gulf", like it has here, it says "GOLF" as it should. Never seen "Gulf" on any BMW engine bay sticker!

Maybe they were playing Putt-Putt...

I don't play golf anymore, but I think it was about this time that balls were being painted this day-glo color for visibility purposes; the same reason for the BMW, et. al., safety colors. Might not mean its the proper derivative but I was told that back then ...I was in Munich in 75, and that was the first I saw golf on an 02. Looked like polizei, or the vests that they wore. Maybe a more definitive answer from our DE friends?
