Mahalo for visiting my Hawaii
Sharkfest Website. Back in the 80's when I got my first glance at a 6-Series, I knew that in my lifetime, someday,
I needed to find an opportunity to purchase one. Preferably a Black/Black combination one. Being true
to my first time car obsession, in 2008 (25+ years later), I finally joined the club of Shark owners. (my story)
This site will always be a work
in progress site. I am always trying to update this site to reflect my current Shark Experiences. Comeback
often to check up on my progress as a first time BMW and Shark owner.
Even though I do
not consider myself as a "car guy", during my young adult years, I always admired those who were able to acquire classic
sports cars and coupes when 98% of the population couldn't. Back in 1985, thinking about owning such luxurious
items was all but a dream. The 80's brought professional Yuppies salaries up to $35,000/year and the
thought of spending $55,000+ on a BMW, Mercedes or Porsche was even more crazy. For me, still a poor college student
in the mid 80's, the idea of someday rolling in a classic sports vehicle still ended up becoming just a dream. Twenty
five years have passed, and to my surprise, my dream is still very much alive and my dream car has become reality!
Update: It has been more
than three years since acquiring my very first E24. I will honestly say that it has been and continues to
be quite an experience for me. Realistically, it has been absolute MADNESS! I have never had so much fun
owning and learning about a driving machine in my life. There is a definitely a sense of pride owning one of the sexist
BMW ever made. My E24 journey has only just begun and I already feel like one of the luckiest guys on the
planet. I really do! Stay tuned...Fueling the fire!
