2006 Jet Black BMW 530xiT

Date Purchased: 03/21/2012
Miles Driven: 62000
Modifications: 1

The car is equipped nice and simply: powerful but fuel-stingy non-turbo 3.0 litre; basic seats with heaters and electric lumbar supports, covered in bulletproof black vinyl (face it, "leatherette" is misleading); nav system; roof rails; and weiner-roasting adaptive Zenon headlights. I've added beautifully engineering roof rack crossbars to haul bulky stuff and have already scratched the roof accordingly. I love the giant glass sunroof. $1400 for a BMW satellite radio receiver is just stupid, so I've cancelled my Sirius subscription. This car's iPod plug does just fine for entertainment.

This car sure doesn't fit the Forum template. Vehicle Make: Not Listed, Vehicle Type: Daily Driver - yeah, but in the summertime only, Transmission Type: Manual 5sp - if you include reverse. I bought the car new, right here in Edmonton at GB Motors, on December 1, 1973. I restored the body and installed a new top six years ago and refreshed the interior last year. Mechanically, it's enjoyed regular maintenance and occasional repairs as needed, so I've never had to tear it right down. This silly, sometimes annoying car threatens to last forever.

1957 White with Blue (two-tone) Sedan Buick Roadmaster

Date Purchased: 01/02/1973
Miles Driven: 78000

My first car, paid 75 bucks for it. Not really a sedan, it's a 4-door hardtop, which Buick called a Riviera. Nailhead 364 cid V8, Dynaflow, power steering and brakes, factory A/C, power windows, seat, and antenna, Wonder Bar signal-seeking radio. Mechanicals, body, paint, and chrome are done but it still needs upholstery and final assembly. I may finish it sometime before I die but there's no rush.

Terrific car that I bought in Monterey CA in 2004. Smashed in February 2012. Story of repairs - just started - can be found on the Bimmerfest e34 site, under FRANKENBIMMER e34.
