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

Time to plan ahead: the next Sharknose Meeting is scheduled for Saturday May 24, 2014!
Every year the event has grown, and 2014 will be special. Celebrating the event’s 5th anniversary it will be bigger, better and more professional than ever! We are already working hard to make it special. We’ll keep you up to date on developments and let you know when the website is ready for your registrations again. Work in progress for now, but make sure to block the date: Saturday May 24, 2014.

Getting together on a huge field -like we’ve done the past few years- definitely adds to the laid back meeting atmosphere. However, this was always a concern to us. If weather conditions would have been less favorable we’re quite sure we’d have a lot less visitors and those who’d turn up would be stuck in the mud. That’s why we believe that this year’s location suits the unpredictable Dutch weather much better and gives us new opportunities for growth. So we’ll have the 2014 Sharknose Meeting in and around the Arnhem Rijnhal again.
