( Cars! andRacing )

Yesterday’s big news in the world of Formula 1 Racing, the sport returns to the US in 2012, and will be held in Austin, Texas! Just one more reason for me to visit that fine and funky city; not that there was any shortage of reasons before, but this means that I really need to […]

Let’s Follow Mexico’s Lead

BMWotD — Parting Out Is Such Sweet Sorrow

I downloaded the latest Nordstrom’s vehicle list last night, and for once there was a new addition to the BMW section… 1991 BMW 735i, RED, 4DR, 3.5L, AT4, BAD MOTOR Cool — another e32! My first thought was about whether there were any parts I could grab from it. The “BAD MOTOR” part told me […]
