    BMW M1

    Sent a beautiful 2008 Z4M to Virginia today. They backed this beauty off of the truck to put the Z4M all the way forward.

    I brought one of these to Los Angeles in the same color as a Grey Market import in 1981. I think the car ran about $100,000 counting everything. That was a lot of money back then but I am sure they are worth way more than that today. I drove the car quite a bit before selling it. At the time I thought the car had amazing power but compared to what is available today it was rather slow. But, it was quite the attention getter. Amazing how many people thought it was a Ferrari even though it had BMW emblems all over the outside of it. I believe the color was called Henna Red. I know if I went through some of my old photo albums I would find pictures of the car in my driveway. May just do that!

    I saw the Canapa license plate frame on the M1, and found the link below.

    Same here Ed. I also have heard sketchy things about him--- but to be fair- it seems every dealer has his detractors so perhaps he has simply been around a while.

    I must have missed something, because I didn't notice a "sale pending" on the 959. In fact the ad states that the car just arrived.

    Regardless, very special car and a technical tour de force in its day.
    My Best,

    I have heard everything is priced like the highest auction price ever attained. But he seems to sell them.

    heavily modified for performance. Although, not to the level of GM's car
