Every niche of the automotive world has that company: the one that has been around for ages, catering to enthusiasts with factory parts, race parts, and appreciation for their customers. For us vintage BMW fanatics, that company is Ireland Engineering. This past Saturday, Jeff Ireland and his team opened the shop doors for an afternoon of burgers, brats, and BMWs, to show support for his customers with the 2015 IE Open House.

Bruce Carr is a quiet man; we stood to the side of the photo shoot, as Kevin Trower and Miller Robers snapped photos of his ’69 2002 – we talked about our love for the classic pint-sized coupes. He’s without a doubt one of H2OI’s most grounded attendees, too. At 33 years old, he’s found his way; he’s happily married, has a three year old son, and owns a contracting business with his father in Crownsville, MD.
