z4um Big Wales Meet 2004

Post by chanlon1 » Mon Jan 23, 2023 10:38 am

I was one of the original members on the z4um website 20 or so years ago.
I came across the DVD that we created of the Wales trip in 2004.
Ripped it and uploaded to YouTube.
Bear in mind the quality is not brilliant!

I have the same username and avatar as I did back then, so some folk may still remember??

Maybe some of you will see your car in the videos?

They all seem quite young z4 owners compared to most of us today :poke: :evil: :thumbsup:
Now, Sterling grey Z4 2.2 with cup holders and stubby aerial, sport seats. Roadsters ‘cause they’re great with the roof down.
Ford Anglia, Red Sprite, a few MG midgets, MGB Roadster and yellow Ford Capri, all gone many years now.

Yep, with my son who was 10 then :lol:

The Alpina was from Simmer, he traded that in against a Z4M as soon as that was launched.

Gary had a blue Z3, then a Porsche Turbo (2) and finally a McLaren. JR had the red Z3 with the lowered suspension sparking away on every bump in the road.
On the group pic, Gary is the second from the left standing above the sitting PhilR. John is two rows above him slightly on the right.

Have you taken Senna on any road trips with your variety of Ms?

Haven't taken him on any organised trips, but had some unscheduled spirited drives around the countryside!

Nice post :thumbsup:
A few years before my time,re attending meets, think my first was around 2008/2009.
Do remember seeing the z4um at the time, until it's demise around 2007?

Sad to hear some aren't with us anymore.
Even those in their 20s/ 30s their will be ages with me now,lol. (Pushing 50).
Didn't even know this one has taken place,first Wales meet I went on was John's (Sammy z) in 09?

Nice touch with the Dvds etc too :thumbsup:
