That could be a lot of fun. Back in the 70's we used to put on those "scavenger hunt" kinda drives/contests.

We would spend a few weekends plotting out the route, with the challenges thrown in for the fun factor. All sorts of goofy things had to be found...for example...one of the routes had people coming through White Rock and down to the pier, where either the driver or the passenger, had to run to the end of the pier, to determine what the sign said on the right side of the railing. Another was you had to find the Golden Lion Restaurant and count how many window panes there were, etc, etc. Went for about 75 miles throughout the Fraser Valley, doing stuff like that. Who ever made it back to the start and got the most right, won.

Car looks cool!

This is actually my ex-dime, a '72 4dr, circa 1983.
Image

Then I bought this '72 2dr in '84, which I still own to this day. Still original paint, #905 Cherry Red. Here it is bone stock in the POs driveway when I bought it...

...and after I swapped over the good stuff from the yellow 4dr...

...and pretty much what it looks like today:

Color looks almost identical to the car posted by 72nismo1. Mine is BMW 314 Bright Red.

Sometimes people loose touch with subjectivity, because they've got they're heads stuck too far up they're own,,, Reality.
