Post by Ted in T.O. »

I'll make this short for now and I will edit at a later date.

The weather held up for the 4 days of festivities which continued on into Monday morning.Thanks to all that attended from near and afar! :shock: We had alot of firsts for Tedfest this year.

1 We had not one but two Isetta's.
2 We had two E23's.
3 We had 124 cars come to this year's event compared to 92 last year. :banana:
4 We had a black 850.
Here are two links to pictures of the event. If you have any to share please post them on this thread.

The Isetta's were ultra cool. :alright:

It was great to see some old friends again and meet new ones. There were some great times shared that day.

I really had a great time and hope I didn't make any of the Canadians mad with my Ketchup talk and ribbing, eh. It was a great time and worth coming out for. I made some more videos, I just need to figure out where to load them all. I will hopefully do that tonight. Thanks again Ted.

Nice job, Ted.

From the photos at least, TedFest may be the reincarnation of 5erFest, at least in it's original spirit.
Only drawback I'm seeing is it isn't a moveable feast. :up:

I hope your car can make it next year as well. It'll be fun to see how your "paint repair kit" works.

Shawn takes some good pics, how long did it take to sort through them all?

I spoke with the (local!) owner of that car...he's owned the car for the last 15 years and put on about 170,000 km. He keeps the car garaged and doesn't bring it out during the winter (thus no rust and great paint). It is also a 1984 733i. He just happened to hear about TedFest and dropped by...
