I'm currently on vacation in Germany and I thought I would share this little story with you Canadian BMW fans.
Earlier this week I was staying in a bed and breakfast in Leipzig and the owner found out that I was Canadian and he had to show me his pride and joy.
It is a 1987 Dodge 250 full size van with the camper updates. A Canadian family from Toronto brought it to Europe to vacation with in 1997 and he bought it off of them. He must have rambled on about the van for 10 minutes. "Did you know it runs on gasoline!" he explained in wonder.
Around the corner from his van stood this...
It also belongs to the bed and breakfast owner. He told me that was his winter/work beater car. His son in law gave it too him, and he doesn't want to piss his daughter off by selling it. I asked him if he knew anything about it but he just got frustrated with me because I was not interested in his van.
The car is a E32 Alpina B11 3.5, with a few parking lot bumps and bruises but no rust and a clean interior.
It just goes to show that different people have different perspectives on cars. I couldn't care less about his POS van and he couldn't figure out why anyone would be interested in his POS winter car.
