BMW MFest V "The Ultimatum" April 22-24, 2011 Las Vegas Nevada - YouTube
*For those on the EAST COAST cities Like :
ATLANTA, NEWARK, BALTIMORE, BOSTON, MIAMI/FT.LAUDERDALE, ORLANDO/TAMPA, Virginia Beach, TORONTO to mention a Few.
I understand that driving 3000 miles losses its appeal after 1000 miles but trust me it is worth the trip. Last April 18, 2012 I drove from Killeen, Texas with the Central Texas Mfest crew AFTER a 3-plane/ 32hr flight from Northern Afghanistan so i was Tired and worried that it would NOT meet my expectations and I was wrong!
I landed one day BEFORE we were scheduled to begin the Drive and the excitement kept me awake that whole Night. we were 6 deep from Central Texas, then met up with a few more bmw's up to the Ft.Worth meet spot #2 then another 5 cars there and rolled out of Texas 16 BMWs and 1 Porsche deep. met the El Paso crew, New Mexico crew, Florida crew and Chicago crew in a hotel 1 hr past Alburqueque, NM and we were easy 25-30 BMWs Deep all the way to Las Vegas, NV
anyway, what I'm trying to say is Im using my connections/associations in the auto transporting world to get quotes together from these cities both Open and Enclosed to help those forum members and enthusiast that want to go but do not want to drive that far alone or at all. the realistic Minimum should be 6 cars
Unofficially but i think Technica Motorsports in Atlanta is trying to make there 1st Mfest Appearance with "a couple" of there "shop cars" then another 4-6 members who would rather transport and FLY as aposed to driving. others understand that the drive to Mfest is a BIG part or worthwhile thrill and Fun of it all.
Boston - $1200
Newark/NY - $1100
Baltimore - $1000
Virginia Beach - $900
Atlanta - 10 cars (4 of which maybe from Technica Motorsports) - $700
Tampa/Orlando - $ 750
Miami / Ft.lauderdale - $850
And any other city/town that can get 6 Bmws who's rather transport as aposed to driving all the way to Las Vegas!
I will update the Price Quotes once I hear back from the Auto transporting companies that insurance checks out for validity. Personally, I enjoyed the Drive there with all the other BMW owners and would transport back home.
let me know what you guys would rather do and i will see what i can get done!
