“The first time I saw a Bavaria, it was not love at first sight, and frankly it did not catch my eye,” Brian Hoehne tells me. It wasn’t quite what I expected, coming from the owner of one of the few classic BMWs present at H2Oi. Instead of a long-term love affair with the car and the marque, Brian’s love for cars has flourished in a different way; a story dissimilar to the average tale of car and driver.
H2Oi in Ocean City, Maryland, is easily one of the most anticipated weekends of the year. It is the largest Volkswagen and Audi show North America has to offer, and with the growth of the European car scene, it also offers one of the biggest gatherings of BMWs, Porsches, and lately, even the likes of Toyota, Nissan, Mazda, and others.
