This past weekend was the latest PNW Oppo meet. We had 12 people across 9 cars from across western Canada & the USA. The drive is approx 700km and is very, very pretty.

We missed those that couldn’t make it, but I hear lots of talk on upcoming events in California and Oregon.

I met with Longtime Lurker, Futureheapowner and Littleblue6 who didn’t come along, on Friday night for dinner in Fort Langley in my D100, but didn’t take photos.

From left to right in the photo below: Potential Heap Owner’s V50 T5 AWD (Portland), GMctavish’s Subaru Legacy (Vancouver), Someoneatacura’s 2019 RDX A-spec (Vancouver) (thanks Acura for providing it for the drive!), Longtime Lurker’s ‘86 325ES (Saskatoon), AMGTech’s E55 AMG (Portland), Wrong Wheel Drive (41%)‘s Rental Charger (Los Angeles) , Simonkhtse’s BMW 635CSi (Vancouver), Lamanate’s MK6 GTI (Vancouver) and CarsofFortLangley’s Fiesta ST (Vancouver).

I quite liked the contrast between the 2019 RDX and 1986 325ES. The newest/oldest cars present one with 150km (less than 100 miles) and one with over 300,000km on it. Two different eras of car for sure.

I was impressed by both Longtime Lurker’s skills and the performance of the car. Keeping up with me in the ST and the E55 AMG is no small feat! Must be all that rust lightness. I should also note that Simonktse drove his 635 back to Vancouver after dinner to go and get another BMW a 1 series coupe! I didn’t manage to snap a pic of it though sadly.

Whistler was great, we all had some time to walk around the Village and the place we grabbed dinner was nice and casual with further walking/touristy things and drinks after.

We went on a small hike each day to stretch our legs and see some sights. One to a train wreck from the 1950's and the other to Nairn Falls outside of Whistler.

Due to time constraints, we had to end things a little early, but the whole time was a lot of fun! I will likely make another post with more photos/gopro video from both my car and Longtime Lurker’s.
