I have corrupted the thread starter's topic more than one time. Again, Archguy: Sorry...
1973 BMW 3.0 CSL, some people call this car "Batmobile", which is annoying BS.
BMW 3200 Convertible, formerly owned by BMW owner Herbert Quandt.
BMW 507, formerly owned by Elvis Presley. This car now has been restored to death...it is now as new or even better...
Not at all--in fact you continue to educate me, for which I am genuinely grateful !!
And besides, my posting trigger finger was itching at the mention of Terry Gilliam's Brazil upthread.
An absolute, sprawling masterpiece, and not a little disturbing too. 142-minute Director's Cut FTW!
Love those little Messerschmitts but I won't be paying €100.000 for one!
Now that's what I call 'cozy'...
And Alpina striped too!
It is a masterpiece. But consider this:
The Adventures of Baron Munchausen
The Fisher King
He directed those all in a row! At least 1 of those makes it onto any Top 10 film list I'd compile -
Do customs count?
My first car was a 69 in Black with Red interior.
FIAT 750 Abarth-Zagato -
Forever this -
There is one of these in MA, I've seen it several times on the road. Not sure of the year but it is a birdcage Maserati. Tiny with a rippy/angry exhaust note -
One of these showed up in Natick, MA at a Porsche service shop. Nearly drove off the road turning my head to look. I think it is the only one I've seen for reals -
Ahh... the Artz Golf, built by Nordstadt. Günther Artz only costructed/sold two of them in the late seventies because they were so extremely expensive. Very impressive car. The first picture is from the car magazine "auto, motor & sport" and I had that copy when I was 16.
Isdera CW311 by Rainer Buchmann, based on Mercedes. Actually nobody gets the permission to use the "Mercedes Star". But Mercedes-Benz was so excited by this study that in this one case they permitted it anyway. As far as I remember, Mercedes-Benz even considered to launch a production based on this totally breathtaking study. The object on the roof is the rear view mirror. The design is very much inspired by the Mercedes CW111. (1978)
Karman Ghia Type 34
First time I saw it was in the US mag, VW & Porsche. As a VW & Porsche fans, it left an impression.
