They’re coming out of the woodwork! A French E24 in Burgundy red. Here’s the proof!

Sunday, July 22nd in the car show in Saratoga CA, white 89 with the license plate "R89SHRK", owner is John Motroni from SF :-k

Any chance you're on the board :-?

Hung around for a bit to see if the owner showed up, didn't happen #-o

They're coming out of the woodwork :shock:

Tuesday afternoon, July 24th around 5:00, red 88 M6 heading south on Fair Oaks in Sunnyvale, turned off around Duane Ave :-k

I would presume that you may live in the neighborhood, which is very close to where I live, I could walk there #-o

Please be the first owner to reply and say, "hey, that was me \:D/ "

I encountered another Delphin Grey 635CSI while driving south on 680 in Walnut Creek. I caught up and we exchanged waves and thumbs up. He continued south after I exited in Danville. He had a Diablo Motors license plate bracket which is a local dealer in San Ramon. Perhaps he's on the board and will come and say hello?

I saw one on Friday at work, it was one that I wanted to buy 2-3 years ago from this old lady in her 60's, she did not want to sell either, she was driving it still HAHAH! Problem she smoked in it, it was the dark brown colour, I forgot the name of this colour. Burnt Sienna?

Tuesday, September 4th, while I was still in OC (Orange County, CA) we hit Bru in Lake Forest for lunchy, and there's a red 88/89 635 sitting there in the parking lot :-k

Hopefully, maybe YOU are on the board and can let us know who you are [-o<

Brought my car to Guten Parts in South Orange NJ to get some work done on one of the seats and saw a TON of dream rides (a few clown shoes and a sweet orange 2002 roundie). Also saw a fellow 6er getting some serious engine work done. Not sure who the owner is but it looked awesome!

I have not seen a 635 on the road in my part of the country for ages - only at the NEC Classic Car shows, so you can imagine
my surprise when I arrived at my workshop a few weeks ago to find this lovely 88/89 M635 parked outside the unit next to me!
(Apparently it was booked in for a tune up ) It is in the same Royal Blue Metallic as my 635. It would have been fun to park my car
next to it but mine was up on the lift trying to bleed out trapped air in the abs unit - ugh!
I never got a chance to meet the owner so I wonder if he is a member and recognises his car here and will say hello! cheers Nigel.

A bit late with this one, but I spotted an '85 Euro-spec 635 taking the same route as me in evening rush hour a bit over a month ago. Looked super clean inside and out, but wasn't the biggest fan of the choice of wheels. But who am I to judge when there are so few of us? We ended up stopped on the same offramp and briefly chatted before the intersection. 6er owners are some of the best 8)

And fast-forward to a couple days ago, I finally got a good picture of this special one. I've known the owner for at least a decade and the car has been on jacks probably about as long, but I have no way of telling other than asking, I suppose :roll: Anyway, this is a '79 Euro 635CSi with some Alpina goodness under the hood, Zender skirts, and an M1 Procar wing. I didn't feel like fully uncovering it just yet, so hopefully this will suffice

He has a whole host of other special cars (with one that takes the cake), but I'll save those for another thread :D
