    Thumbs up Des Moines Concours D'Elegance

    Great show in Des Moines on Sunday! The Des Moines Concours D'Elegance (not Pebble Beach, but great for Midwest) had a beautiful collection of new and old mostly locally or "near locally" owned cars from other areas of Iowa as well as from Nebraska and Missouri. The proceeds from the show benefited the Children's Cancer Connection and by being downtown at the Papa Johns Sculpture park exposed a lot of public to these beautiful sets of wheels. The admission was free and with the blue skies and 80 degree temperatures the attendance was great. The only BMW though was the one with two wheels (last picture).

    I was there, in Iowa, a few months ago for a week, visiting my wife's extended family in albia etc. I rented an explorer, but was thinking I wish I had the z8!

    Thanks, but not sure we'll be back anytime very soon. Our last trip was summer 2001. It was painful only in that I had only gotten my Z8 a few months earlier, and wanted to be home driving it! We had a great time though. This trip we saw the 17year locusts? And some pretty major weather. If I do get back there I'll look you up.

    Great news arrived in the mail today - my car was accepted for the Des Moines Concourse d'Elegance 2016. This year the show celebrates BMW Centennial and I am excited to be part of the show with my car! http://www.desmoinesconcours.com/
