BMW M Coupe

October 9th, 2008 · Comments Off on BMW M Coupe

The Wind in your Hair

July 7th, 2008 · 1 Comment

There’s that “wind in the hair feeling” that people say they have when they are enjoying their car or motorcycle.  I’ve been enjoying that feeling with my new GTO.  I don’t think that feeling has anything to do with wind or hair.  It is about everything in life lining up and making sense.  It is […]

May 14th, 2008 · 1 Comment
