The gas station in my neighborhood inexplicably has weird and amazing cars at it all the time. Today, I was finally in a position to snap a picture.

The owner was there to meet someone to sell a bunch of camera gear to. Inexplicably, I had enough cash on hand offer more than the buyer was paying. But I left well enough alone.

The owner did tell me to never, under any circumstances, buy one of these 8 series BMWs. He said it’s a nightmare, but he loves it.

Does anyone know how many of these made it to the U.S.? I think they produced around 30,000 of them.
