2014 German Car Fest Vancouver - Recap - 145 Photos

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
2014/06/29, at Waterfront Park in North Vancouver, BC.


Hosted by:
BMW Car Club of BC (http://www.bmwccbc.org)
Porsche Club of America - Canada West Region (http://www.pca-cwr.org)
Mercedes-Benz Club of America - British Columbia Section (http://www.bcstars.mbca.org)
and the Audi Club Western Canada (http://www.audiclubwesterncanada.org)

-----

Here is a video of me driving to and from the event:

Starting in Sunset, I drove through Mount Pleasant, then onto the Dunsmuir Viaduct which passes through both BC Place and Rogers Arena, then Downtown Vancouver passing by both the Hudson's Bay Building and Vancouver Art Gallery, then through Stanley Park and onto Lion's Gate Bridge into North Vancouver, before hitting the queue of Ze Germans waiting to enter the event. Leaving, I went back onto the Lion's Gate Bridge and passed by the Vancouver Public Library Central Branch and the main Canada Post office before passing by BC Place again on the Georgia Viaduct, where you can catch a glimpse of the Cirque du Soleil's yellow-and-blue top at Concord Pacific Place, then the East Van sign in the heart of Strathcona, before getting home to type this post up

-----

Started with the 8ers, as usual:











-----

2002s:

-----

M235i:





-----





-----

The Isettas:






-----





-----

Audis are so photogenic:














-----

Back to BMWs:



-----

Yes, 335d!


-----

Something like 400whp N/A:


-----





















-----

E30 M3:




-----



-----

A few VWs. They have their own massive gathering so that's why not many were here today.




-----

His and her's, believe it or not!


-----

Porsches have the best spot....




























-----

More Mercedes-Benz's this year than I ever remember seeing:




-----

W204 C63 AMG, W203 C55 AMG (with the CLK front end to fit the 5.5L V8), W202 C36 AMG, and the grand-daddy of them all the W201 190E 2.3-16V








-----












-----

The last of the current SLSs - The SLS AMG GT:





-----

The original Gullwing, 300SL:

Awesome pics! I loathe the wheels on the 1M and I'm trying to figure out what's going on in the kidney grilles of the champagne colored 850Ci? Was that thing in an accident on the way to the event?

Yeah and none of the body panels match up either on that car. Almost looks like a weber grille surface behind those kidneys.

Was that really a 1M or someone slapping body panels and a badge on a 135i? The later might actually be less tragic than someone messing up a real 1M.
