Congratulations to this week’s Shell Fill-Up Friday winner, LA Chapter member Robert Voorhees (IG @coyotebobu), who won a $50 Shell gift card thanks to this picture of his Z3!
“I used to have a Dakar Yellow 2000 Z3 2.3i, which I sold in 2012 for a more practical vehicle,” says Robert. “Virtually every time I entered the garage, my inner voice said, ‘miss the Z car.’ Last year, while traveling to Oregon with my son-in-law and his uncles, car stories became a topic. I mentioned missing my all-time-favorite car, and one uncle spoke up and said he actually had one he intended to sell [this 2000 Z3 2.8i]. So I drove FUNZEE back to SoCal, where it began its life. Now the hole is filled in my garage, along with the joy of driving!”
His favorite thing about being a BMW CCA member? “Reading Roundel and learning of the experiences of other club members with their BMWs,” says Robert. “I have attended one LA Chapter event during this first year of membership, and plan to attend other future events, including ZSCCA events.”
Robert is also a big fan of Shell. “The comments from Fill-up Friday winners prompted me try V-Power NiTRO+ in the Z3 a few month ago,” he adds. “The V-Power immediately improved the performance of the car’s nineteen-year-old engine, seemingly providing greater power and smoother idling. It’s an energy drink for FUNZEE!”
As always, thank you, Robert, for your support of the club—and for your participation in Fill-Up Friday!
