BMW i | Born Electric

with one comment

What an amazing automobile!  Needless to say this in a glance into the not too distant future.  BMW’s new i series, tag name: Born Electric.  Leave it to the engineers at BMW to envision what I drive in my dreams, and bringing to the now.  This carbon fiber and composite computer on wheels will run seamlessly with your smartphone. While taking you where you want to go in style and comfort, without the carbon footprint.  I look forward to the i series hitting the streets, and will be a my local dealer well before the cars are on the showroom floor.

2003 BMW X5 4.6is

This 2003 X5 4.6is combines cutting edge styling, rugged construction, off-road capability, ample comfort amenities, power, exhilarating performance, versatility, great cargo room, luxury and legendary BMW reliability.  The beautiful Titanium Silver paired with Black Napa Leather and Rare Burlwood trim is exceptional.  The M inspired V8 has 340 horsepower, and a suspension to back up it up.  If you have followed The|Coinologist you know that this automobile has taken me many places.  I thought it only right she have a post of her own.

BMW ART CARS

Road Trips Now and Then.

leave a comment »

Going through my photos I came across one that I can replicate almost to the T, I am at the same place I was 18 years ago on a similar road trip. In 1992 my brother Lawrence and I road tripped  from the S.F. Bay area to Cleveland, Ohio, my home town.  I hope you remember Fahrvergnügen. We made the journey in my 1990 VW Corrado G60 .  My good friends let us stay at their place and we took this photo. Well the car is still silver, just a little larger and a few more horsepower.  Time might not stand still, but these photos speak a thousand words.
