  • Mike Hayworth, Parts Manager

    A Monterey boy, graduated from Monterey High School, went on to earn a bachelor's degree from California State University Sacramento. Active as a Commissioner with the Del Rey Oaks Planning Commission. An avid 'car guy' involved as a Race Steward with the Sports Car Club of America, an Assistant Director with the Sports Car Racing Association of the Monterey Peninsula, and a member of the Pebble Beach Sports Car Club to name a few. I like to drive and maintain vintage cars to include a '71 BMW 2002 and various British cars. Having worked with BMW in the Monterey area since the late 70's, I can't think of a better car line or a better group of people to be associated with.
