    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.

    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!

    It is a masterpiece. But consider this:

    Brazil
    The Adventures of Baron Munchausen
    The Fisher King
    12 Monkeys

    He directed those all in a row! At least 1 of those makes it onto any Top 10 film list I'd compile -

    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 -

    The 959

    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)
