Or at least 225 horses in an in-line 6-cylinder engine. One of BMW's finest engines.
When I was growing up in the wilds of South Carolina, my mother was what I am today – a car nut. In retrospect, I suppose I learned that passion at her knee. She traded cars every year, with some excuse or another, but I think she just liked having a different car when her passion faded. Her favorite was Mercury made by the Ford Motor Company and now a defunct division.
Once, she had a 1964 burgundy Chevrolet Impala Super Sport with really fancy wheel covers. The style at the time was to remove the wheel covers. That was cool. So, cool that we were two girlfriends and I borrowed Mom’s SS and headed to Myrtle Beach to cruise the strip. We didn’t meet any boys at ‘where the boys are’ but we had a wonderful time.
Does anyone remember "Dead Man's Curve" by Jan and Dean?
Well, the last thing I remember, Doc, I started to swerveAnd then I saw the Jag slide into the curve
I know I'll never forget that horrible sight
I guess I found out for myself that everyone was right
Won't come back from Dead Man's Curve.
That love affair has persisted to today. I had 4 Miatas, (this is the last):
that I didn’t really love. A new Miata came next, but my libido began to stir, and I started doing on-line searches for a Z4. Wings here was the result.
When I wrecked my SUV (brief stint as an SUV owner), I did a search on a Z3, exactly what I wanted. He popped up in Macon, GA. My aunt and I drove down (about 4 hours), and I drove Zippy Z back. He's a 2002 Sterling Gray Z3 3.0i, and the love of my life. Zippy is an exact replica of Z3PO, except that this time I opted for an automatic transmission.
Happy Trails and Happy Holidays until we meet again...
