BMWCCA

The Lynchburg contact for the BMW Car Club of America has a collection of BMWs. How pretentious does that sound? But he’s a good guy. And he gets his hands dirty working on them.


Running and drivable (and pictured below – not actual): 88 750iL, 88 735 manual (a bit rare), 83 533, 81 528i.

Projects and parts cars: 84 318i, 80 320i, 88 528e, another 533, 2 2002’s, and an 86 735, and a few temporaries that are being finished up or parted out.

Welcome home.

Last night, I arrived home to see this.

These are large orange trucks with their hard hat topped operators lining the sides of my road. And I walked into the house and flipped on the lights to discover, no power.

But as I left work a few minutes earlier, this was parked outside my office window.

It’s a Triumph of some sort. I couldn’t figure out what it was. But that’s just interesting.

Google Reader

I was getting sick of refreshing the 10 websites I visit repeatedly throughout the day and realized that’s what a feed’s for, you berk.
