The thing absolutely blew me away just in sheer craftsmanship. From the brief look I had of it, it seemed like every edge in that car was hand carved to me. After that, I’d say I always have had an eye for cars. Heading to random full day car dealership crawls with my Uncle and Dad were and still are my favorite trips.
If I had to guess, I’d say my interest in cars comes from my Dada's (Grandpas). Where my family is from originally, my Grandpas' owned a car dealership that became the fun place to hang out, during family vacations. 1. Because of the cars and motorbikes in the showrooms and 2. They always gave me Thums-Up aka Coca-Cola Indian Style (if you haven’t tried it.. go get some). But it was my grandpa (an engineer) who would always talk to me about different cars and the names and countries of origin of different cars we saw on the streets. The one thing that my grandpa has always said since I was too young to drive is that when I get a nice car, he wants to sit shotgun and “get lost” for a few miles down the road. Now that I am beyond blessed to be driving one of my childhood dreams, a 320i, I can’t wait to actually do that.
When I started this website and my Instagram (shameless plug)..I was not expecting the amount of BMW E30 submissions I received so far. I had not known or heard much about these 1982-1993 3-Series monsters, but after seeing some of the pictures sent in, I have to say I am hooked.
When you stop by most car dealers today, you’re usually greeted with perfectly aerodynamic design that leaves cars looking fit to be sailed to Aruba. But the E30 3-series.. now that catches an eye. The boxy exterior and the kidney grills in between iconic headlights make for a car that would stand out in any showroom today. Since slowly receiving everyone's E30 picture submissions, I can’t get enough of learning about these E30 cars, especially the hallowed M3.
This blog is going to be my foray into learning more about this awesome generation and showing ya’ll what I find. Enjoy!
