Update: there is a broke down motor home in the middle of the Rt 40 overpass of Rt 70 so Rt 40 is backed up too. The whole area is a Cluster f*ck

Thanks again to everyone for a great weekend. Dane you and Morgan were terrific hosts and I hope to see you sooner than next reunion.

Was great meeting everyone in the flesh finally.

Kokesh and I hit a pretty nasty storm just south of Chicagoland on our way but I made it up through just fine. Hoping he did too but he had to turn west and follow it.

Everyone else drive safe!

Had an awesome time at this year's reunion - so glad I was finally able to make it! Huge thanks to Dane, Morgan, and the kids, and Ted and his family as well. Dane obviously put a lot of time and effort into planning and putting on this shindig. Hope he knows it was very much appreciated by all.

And it was great to finally put some faces with names. Really enjoyed getting to know you all a little better! We're very lucky to have such a great group of people.

Found out after I got home that Seth and I basically drove through a tornado near Demotte, Indiana. We made it no worse for wear, though!

So is Ted a member yet?

+2

Just wanted to say thanks again for everything this weekend! I had a blast catching up with those who I had met last year and getting to know many whom I've interacted with online quite a bit in person. Dane, thanks so much for setting up an awesome meet! Guy/Ted, thanks again for hosting us for maintenance day! Seth, thanks for the awesome photoshoot and tips for car photography, looking forward to seeing your shots of the other cars along with the group shot! Alex, Brett, Shawn, BP, Dane, Dave, etc, thank you for expert work, car ran beautifully on the way home averaging +/- 30mpg even through the mountains! Idk if it was the intake, the finagling of the boots for a tighter fit or what, but all I know is I'm happy to be a member of this Family and enjoyed every minute of this weekend!

Successful reunion meet is when everyone makes it home safe... Glad to hear everyone who made it this year had a great time! Hopefully I will make next year's reunion meet :)

Friends. Or, family:

Thank you for such a great time over the weekend. You all truly are a fun, friendly group of people to hang out with. Cool cars, awesome people, and the rally was interesting. I've learned about some neat places in Cincy. I'm mad sunburned right now; BP and I had a good hike around town. It's not often that you find people where even after years, you pick up like it was yesterday. Huge thanks goes out to Dane for organizing this. I greatly look forward to the next one.

If any of you guys are around in Columbus, my door is always open and you've got a place to crash. I think my phone number is in the Members forum. Mi casa es su casa. There's only one fee: you're contractually obligated to have fun.

Good meeting you too. You should go rep the mafia next weekend at Timmayfest (Sat 10am Quaker Steak & Lube near Polaris mall). First time in 5 years I'll be missing it. :(

Look what Daniel picked up.

20091
Ha-ha! Even though Daniel only took it for a short spin in the parking lot it looks like it at least a small silly assed perma-grin on his mug. I've never let anyone else drive it until now, so props to the members on this board whom I only just met but :respect enough to trust they'll drive responsibly. :thumbsup



Idk but I know it hauls ass, and Kpro's is even more fast.Yeah, Brett and I followed behind Kristen's tastefully modded 135 on the way back to the C&C site to pick up Stu's beautiful Le Mans Blue E92, and it was fun being dusted just to hear that sweet Corsa exhaust sing its aria. :) I fully expect to see it next year adorned with a full OEM 1M body kit.


Thanks Dane & Fam. Great seeing everyone and putting some faces to those of you that I hadn't met before.

Just made it home a little while ago as the sun was setting. Great ride with great weather and no significant traffic.

Yeah, big shout out to the ZHP Boss man.............The Great Dane! I was just there for the Saturday events, so I can only imagine the time and effort to organize 3 days worth of gigs for the family. My thanks to both Dane and Seth for reconning and scoping out the optimum site for my photo shoot.

It was also a pleasure to see Brett and my old imola red-headed flame again. It's amazing how she looks as good (if not better) today, than when I first handed the keys over to him 6 years ago, especially considering it appears he uses it occassionally for off-roading purposes now. :facepalm

:p

Finally, it was nice to meet everyone else that was there on Saturday. It's not just a coincidence that this is the friendliest board on the planet as Dane likes to quote, so props and credit where they are due. :applause

I apologize for having to boogie from the dinner without shaking everyone's hand, but I figured that would have taken another hour or two
to do properly, and possibly wound up with another photo shoot of all our cars in the parking lot with Seth having to climb up on Pitrelli's roof to execute it with the attention to detail he likes to exhibit with his shoots.

And for those that haven't made it to a family re-union yet you definitely need to add it to your bucket list.

Hahahaha... after that Blackhawks loss I probably would have jumped off of the roof!

It does look a little bit better!

For reference, my car is clean sometimes. 3 days before heading to the meet:

Lookin' really good, Alex. :thumbsup

Funny how one day a car can look clean and the next look like it hasn't been washed in a week. lol
I guess rain will do that do ya, especially in the springtime.

1,600 miles in 3 days is also a factor. :rofl

Of course. My car looks almost as bad as yours did with the bugs on the front after my 12 hour drive last night!

Some kid in a Tiburon kept trying to race us on the PA turnpike lol. We had some fun with him then let him go... Better for him to be the runner and get the ticket than us.
Once again it was great seeing everyone again and meeting all the new people.

This is the most welcoming group I've ever met. I was a new member last year and whoed up to the meet, and left feeling like a member of the family!

Ah, I've been back home for multiple days but have not had a chance to visit this thread to post my appreciation for all involved in the ZHP Ohio Reunion 2015. DW, as always, a huge thank you to you and your family for putting on another great meet. Everyone that attends always seems to have a good time, and I believe that the leadership plays a large role there, just like the day to day operation of this fantastic forum. Ted & Family - thank you to you all for opening up your home and perfect garage for this event. You were extremely kind to let us all invade your home for some backyard BBQ and fun times working on a few Bavarian problems. Mike, great to see you again and thank you for the thorough test ride in the 1M. I get why you enjoy it, and she looks perfect in Valencia Orange too. Not to worry, no ZHP was harmed in my rallying adventures to & fro! :thumbsup Seth, good meeting you and thanks for your professional documentation of the meet. I enjoyed seeing a couple of the photo shoots very much. Last but not least, everyone else - always a pleasure to see my extended BMW family, commiserate with you for the weekend, and enjoy the total ZHP immersion. It's a shame that we had such a shortage of IR sedans this year though. Perhaps next year we can have a better turnout. :p

Itís a Sad day for those of you that remember!

Attention everyone.. Attention. Can I get you to stop scrolling for just one minute..?

ahh. Thanks!

Well, folks. It is with sweet sorrow that we must make the decision to CLOSE Fuel Coffee, and say farewell to our beloved Cars and Coffee on Riverside Dr. The most un-sung event the East End will ever know. The consistent visibility we brought to the neighborhood over the last 10 years will never be reproduced. And we wish everyone running a business around us good luck!

Those who have been aware of our struggle, know it has been tough.. ever since the city decided to change the traffic pattern in the East End back in 2013. We have waited for business to return, and we have wrestled with many hurdles, and most often came out on top. Fuel survived, despite all. But not this time, we have come to the end and have made the tough decision.

We will be open for four more days, and hosting our last Cars and Coffee event, at this address, on February 23, 2019.

Please come and celebrate the years of wonderful social meets with us, as we open the doors for the last time. We know that its is the dead of winter, but we just don't have a choice any longer!

-Not saying this is the end of Fuel Coffee, not saying its not. We are fighters, and are exploring our options. We just can't do business in the East End any longer.

Thanks for all the memories friends. Thanks a ton.
