Nederlandse E21 pagina’s (Dutch pages)
We’re getting ready for the 5th anniversary edition of the Sharknose Meeting in The Netherlands. In just a few years the event has developed into one of the largest events for Classic and Youngtimer BMW events worldwide, aiming on the cars with the characteristic reclining sharknose front, and older examples!
The website www.sharknosemeeting.com is updated and if you’re planning on coming over, you can register there now! Further, we also added a Facebook page where you can find the latest news and photos of all previous editions: www.facebook.com/sharknosemeeting.

Make sure to be there on Saturday May 24, 2014!
Happy New Year to all! Hope we can enjoy our cars to the fullest, and in good health!
Looks like 2014 is going to be great again. Some wonderful international events coming up including the Le Mans Classic and of course our own Sharknose Meeting in The Netherlands on May 24. We are also finalizing our plans for another weekend in Germany late August, and and and… The schedule is filled to the brim already! Check it out HERE!
… and a Happy New Year! Wishing you all a healthy 2014 filled with BMW fun!
We are pleased and thankful that Dutch based Hardeman Motorsport decided to be our main sponsor for another year. They supply parts for most BMW’s… did you check out their website and webshop yet?
As far as we know, Autoservice Horst Lumma from Winterlingen, Germany only built 5 of these pickup versions besides their fully convertible conversions. For more info on the Lumma convertibles visit our Convertibles page.
The preparations for 2014 have started already! We will surely see some amazing E21′s at UK events like the Retro German Car Show, Prept, Gaydon and Retro Rides while over in Holland we are preparing for another step forward with the huge Sharknose Meeting. Enough classic racing events coming up as well, like Spa and Le Mans Classic, German Oldtimer GP and Goodwood Revival. But there’s much more, please check out our provisional calendars and let us know if you have any suggestions!
With most of the events for this year behind us it is a good moment to look back, and we can only conclude that 2013 was a wonderful year. So many events! We saw more classic minters than at the BMW Museum early this year at the Breeman Classic Collection, visited some impressive events like the TechnoClassica, Spa Classic, some classic rallies, Schloss Dyck. With the E21 community we had several meet & drive events in Holland and Germany including Ring visit and we had excursions to wheel alignment and motorsports companies. But this years top events must have been these:
1. all BMW action at the German Oldtimer Grand Prix, including E21 Group 5 cars, M1′s, the Brabham BT52 F1 car, the V12 LMR Le Mans winner and much more
2. our own Sharknose Meeting with close to 500 classic BMW’s attending
