Membership Update– from membership chair, Kirsti Christoff
As of December 31st, we have 120 E31 Chapter members. Two members renewed their memberships in December. I wish to say thank you to those renewing and for your continued interest in the E31 Chapter and the International E31 Community!
Looking for something to do while in your “bubble”? I recently found this twenty minute video of Bruce Meyer showcasing his personal collection of automobiles. Bruce is on the board of the Petersen Automotive Museum in Los Angeles and was a car guy long before the Petersen was established. Unfortunately, I do not believe he has discovered the enjoyment of E31 ownership, but I hope you will find his video enjoyable, nonetheless.
In September, a second E31 has been added to my garage; a 1991 850i, Japanese market car (JDM) imported into Canada in 2006. Just 106,000 kms (65,865 miles) on the clock. Mauritius blue metallic with grey leather interior, automatic transmission, sunroof, rear sunshade, headlamp washers. Excellent condition throughout, the car had been stored unused for almost 2 years in a garage just a couple blocks from my house. After fixing a few minor issues and doing a re-commissioning, the car is now on my Hagerty policy and getting some regular exercise and enjoyment.
Enjoy the upcoming E31 News and as always, your comments are welcome!
