Tenuous Link

We like to think that all our posts are Mustang related of some sort. We have a very tenuous link this time which could be fun as well. As Adam has arrived back in the UK we have some details of the last leg of their holidays. Just before Remembrance Day Adam & Lynn landed in Munich Germany for a few days stop over.

While they were there they popped into the BMW Museum for a look around to see the German engineering and heritage of their cars.

At the entrance they had a display of some cars that BMW have absorbed into their empire. That being of course the huge scalp of Rolls Royce and the ultimate cult icon car of the ’60’s, the Mini. Subsequent revisions of the mini have seen it turn into a Euro box with not as much character as the beloved original.

The rest is all BMWs as you would expect.

Two wheels;

Their racing pedigree featuring the infamous M3 and dipping their toes into the money void of F1;

The future?

We mentioned a tenuous link earlier and here it is. This picture was in the museum and has a mustang within it. Can you find it? (I personally think there are two in there).

To finish up the couple of days in Germany? You need to have a beer!

Editors note: I’m just glad it’s not Adam in those leather shorts! 😀

Customer Cars:

We have been asked to see more pictures of the inside of the Hertz clone with the windows kit fitted. As requested those inside shots.

The Onion Mustang

Yogi has been rebuilding The Onion Convertible and things have started to take shape. Adam had a pleasant surprise when he saw the car after a few weeks away. There is a lot of temporary work to get the full picture. Once the tiny adjustments have been made the proper welding will take place. Starting from the back;

Then to the front;


Next week we shall be back to normal with any luck. But over the last few weeks has anybody spotted a pattern with the batches of photos?

America?

Cuba;

Germany;

Answer: Not once did Adam suffer from the frizzy hair syndrome like Lynn did!

Very Diplomatic

A Rare Official Embassy Vehicle

Another very busy week trying to get things cleared as much as we can before Christmas. This week we have had another very unusual car arrive at our garages to give it our once over. This car is all original and what makes this car unique is its history. The car was once used by a diplomats for a certain foreign embassy, to be chauffeur driven around or to be used by the officials themselves. This car is in superb condition and still has the tell-tale flag fittings in place on the front wings. BMW’s have made some great cars in the past and this is a perfect collectors car with hardly any work needing to be done on it. We’re not sure if the mats in the car are from the embassy, but we like to think so! Like we have said a few times before, it’s not quite our normal muscle car madness, but this is well worth the mention on our blog.
