    Iowa BMW CCA Spring Drive

    Had a great day with the Iowa Club members driving though the spring time countryside. The weather is unusually warm and yesterday was perfect for top down driving. We met in Pella, the Tulip capital of Iowa, stopping for lunch at Appaloosa Rapids Brewing Company continuing to the Antique Airplane Association and the Airpower Museum. After touring the museum the group started the trip home with sun warming the temperature to almost a record.

    Nice! Very quaint town. Can't be too many Z8's in Iowa.

    I thought that looked like Pella! I went there the summer after I got my Z8 (not with my car). My wife has family in Albia. What a great trip it was. I remember finding a toy car in a junk shop in the back of a bait shop. It was a black and cream 507, about 1/18th scale, of low quality. What a random find in Iowa. I should have bought it, seems like someone was trying to tell me something.

    Thank you for the nice comments even if the cars are not as exciting as on some of these other posts - I know Iowa does not have many exotics and possibly has only a couple of Z8 owners whom I have not met. Anyway, it is great to have a nice drive with other car enthusiasts and at the end of the day it really is not about the car you drive but about the enjoying whatever you drive.
