MENSUEL DU THEATRE DE LA MER, GOLFE-JUAN (06)

As usual the gloomy weather forecast was wrong and we had a fine morning for the monthly meeting at Golfe-Juan.
Having covered very nearly 5 km to get there I could only stand in reverence in front of the BMW 3.0CS which arrived from Norway :shock:
There was another (BMW, not norwegian) which was finished recently and still running on trade plates, as was a very shiny Ford Mustang.
In fact all the cars seemed exceptionally shiny this month, even Dark Star which I had waxed for the first time in years.
I was parked between Gérard H’s MGB and a TR4 which both offered some serious shininess competition.
Unusual véhicles this month included a VW Karmann-Ghia convertible and an overgrown E-type (2+2).
There seemed to be an awful lot of Fiat 500’s scurrying around, and quite a few minis.
Only one Corvette - perhaps next month 8)

Comme d'habitude, la météo s'est trompée et nous avions une belle matinée pour la réunion mensuelle à Golfe-Juan.
Ayant parcouru près de 5 km pour y arriver, je ne pouvais que rester sidéré devant la BMW 3.0CS, arrivée de Norvège :shock: .
Il y en avait une autre (BMW, pas norvégienne) qui a été achevé récemment et roule toujours sur des plaques provisoires, tout comme une Ford Mustang très brillante. En fait, toutes les voitures semblaient exceptionnellement brillantes ce mois-ci, même Dark Star, que j'avais ciré pour la première fois depuis des années.
J'étais garé entre la MGB de Gérard H et une TR4 qui offraient toutes les deux une sérieuse compétition de brillance.
Les véhicules inhabituels de ce mois-ci comprenaient une décapotable VW Karmann-Ghia et une type E gonflée (2 + 2).
Il semblait y avoir énormément de Fiat 500 qui se précipitaient partout, et quelques minis.
Une seule Corvette - peut-être le mois prochain 8)

It's not because the 3.0cs has been designed by a French guy but this is a very nice car :wink:
And thanks for the photos!

That’s a E9 isn’t it (by Hofmeister, not the Bracq designed E24) - much prettier than the French guys attempt IMO :D

Yes, Hofmeister, according to Wiki but they don't give his nationality :wink: .

I had to look it up - Hofmeister headed the “New Class” (1500/1600/1800/2000 and the 02 series) that saved BMW.

Bracq is remembered for the Mercedes pagoda roof, the BMW concept car that became the M1 and the “series” cars (3, 5, 6 & 7 series).

How about this for a design study on the 6 series - 8 series anyone?
