foto of the day. BMW drop tops.

I really want to like convertibles/roadsters/drop tops….but i’m not a person who really desires to have THAT much sun…..i’d prefer to be in shady places rather than with the sun gleaming down on my forehead……I also think that the concept of a roadster just doesn’t suit my aesthetic likes or my style in general.  That being said, I have come to grips to appreciating the idea of roadsters….and can appreciate how others like them…

That being said, my wife loves the BMW Z3 and Z8—-and this photo is for her!

From left to right:

328, 507, Z1, Z3, Z8, and Z4.

BMW: the (de)generations of design.

I grew up with BMW as my favourite marque; mainly because of my undying love for the E30 M3 when i was a young child.  I’m not sure why I wasn’t like other children who loved Corvettes and Porsches, because I wasn’t.  I still remember my parents buying me a radio controlled car when i was very young (9 or 10?), and I didn’t choose the red Porsche, i chose the dark grey E30 M3.  I wish i still had that radio controlled car…

Anyways, BMW is a company who i’ve watched deteriorate in charm.  They may still build very fast and potent automobiles—-but they leave me feeling numb.  The modern BMW design is stale and very non-BMW in many ways.  To be honest, the 1-series is the only BMW I am really a fan of—-and that is a great car to drive as well.

Here are 2 photos.  One of all the 5-series and one of all the 3-series.   The best ones are on the left side of the pictures.
