It was, undoubtedly, the coldest night of the trip, although at just shy of 11,000 feet, with small patches of snow still on the ground, that doesn’t quite come as a surprise. The clearing we had found to camp in filled with sunlight bright and early, rousting everyone from their slumber well before 8:00am. First on the list was for Jim Bob and I to move our tents into the sun; the morning dew was heavy, and condensation filled the nooks and crannies from the night before.
While the namesake might suggest otherwise, the E24 6-Series was born as a clearly defined successor to the iconic E9 Coupe. As a grand-tourer built to hybridize and balance the ideals between sports car and luxury traveller. In many ways, it’s the car that helped to define BMW as a marque for at least a decade, if not two. It comes as no surprise, then, that BMW fanatics throughout the world continue to celebrate its prowess and poise.
While I’m slow to rummage through my photos and edit, Jim Bob Barnett has already put together video highlighting our recent trip to Colorado. Every year, the StanceWorks Off Road family gets together for a 10-day adventure, with this year’s destination taking us to the southern corner of Colorado and into the deserts of Utah. With his incredible camera work, Jim Bob has managed to tell a visual story.
For better or worse, standing out in the world of 911s presents a challenge. In a segment of the community filled with high-end shops and high-dollar customers, RS replicas and backdated bodies are met with flawless restorations and machines built for display at the likes of the Monterey historics. It’s a niche rich with the rich and filled to the brim with likeminded enthusiasts with a penchant for things done a certain way.
We awoke on Friday morning, perched on a mountainside at roughly 9,000ft of altitude. For me and Jim Bob, it was technically the start of Day 3, but for most of the gang, the trip was just beginning. Rewinding a bit, Jim Bob and I had departed from Southern California on Wednesday morning, making it to Southern Utah through excruciating 113-degree heat before calling it a night and catching some sleep.
