BMW Centennial Celebration

Last weekend, America’s Car Museum in Tacoma, WA hosted a BMW Centennial Celebration so we braved the elements on the drive up to the rain or shine event which showcased over 350 cars from all over the Pacific Northwest. Here were some of my favorites 🙂 And one of our trusty little co-driver 😀
