This picture is a salute to a pre-war BMW enthusiast we lost earlier in 2018. Some of you know him from his days having a restoration shop in Long Beach, CA (or at the swap meet) and others via the HAMB as “Bluto”. For myself, he was a best friend who will be missed without question.

This was always his happiest time of the year for those who knew him. Some of you will inevitably recognize the persona in the caricature and it will hopefully make you smile as well. He definitely was a true character!
