Congratulations to this week’s Garage Goals winner, Los Angeles Chapter member John LaPorta! LaPorta has won $25 gift cards from Shop BMW CCA and Griot’s Garage thanks to this picture of his beautiful 1973 3.0 CS!
“Given our current environment, I have definitely been spending more time at home,” said LaPorta. “However, I am taking advantage of the reduced Southern California traffic and driving my BMW’s more than usual. I have also managed to do several 500-plus-mile road trips to the California Central Coast with other BMW CCA members.”
Asked how he discovered the BMW CCA, LaPorta said, “I have been a fan of BMW since I was thirteen and took a test drive with my father in a 1983 533i Sport. After that experience, I saved as much money as possible and when I turned sixteen purchased a 1976 Chamonix 2002. Joining the BMW CCA was a natural progression.”
Tell us more about your BMWs!
“I have owned many BMW’s over the last 30 years ranging from M cars to vintage. I currently own a Euro 1967 2000 Neue Klasse, which was built and used for The Targa California. I also own an original California Black Plate 1968 2002 in Polaris Silver with blue interior. The car in the Instagram photo is my 1973 3.0 CS “coupe” and I recently acquired my father’s 1990 E30 convertible, which was owned by two prior BMW CCA members.”
As always, thank you, John, for your support of the club—and for your participation in our BMW CCA Garage Goals giveaway on Instagram.
