After rolling through a few weeks ago for the first Club Day, we were back at Hoonigan’s Bakery in Long Beach, Calif., for doughnuts and lust-worthy machines. This time the theme was classic BMW, and the enthusiast community did not disappoint.
While Bimmers from varying eras and models stopped by, this meet was really about three different platforms: E30 (1982 to ’93 3-Series), E9 (1968 to ’75 CS), and 02 Series (1968 to ‘75 2002). Vying for the most stares were a pair of seemingly mint 3.0 CSL and another duo of pretty rare 2002, one a convertible, the other in Alpina trim.
We also finagled a super-quick, behind-the-scenes tour of the Hoonigan headquarters – super quick because there really isn’t much to the facility. Apart from the retail nook where one can snag the latest Hoonigan threads every Saturday from noon to 5 p.m., and the now-famous loading dock where many a tire have been slain, there are some pretty nondescript offices in one half of the building, and then a massive garage for everything from photo shoots to housing staff project cars. Not much to take in, but still a pretty cool place to work we imagine.
Hoonigan plans on having a Club Day at The Bakery pretty much once a month, so if you’re anywhere within the greater Los Angeles/Orange County area it might be worthwhile to check out at least once; we suggest just waiting for a marque that you really dig and then make a day of it. Activities for Hoonigan are kicking into high gear, too, with the upcoming release of Ken Block’s Gymkhana EIGHT; for more info about that, visit our post from yesterday.
