    Thanks, I’ll check out the link.

    I know the car pretty well. I read all about it as a kid and even built the “Revell” model.
    Crazy about the Mysterion. T-Bird back lights.

    Cool article, too bad the original car is gone.

    Thanks again.

    I'm glad you're taking this OK.

    If I was a big time BMW devotee, I would be despondent at the idea of a FWD based BMW.

    This is worse than Jaguar having an SUV or the decision by Cadillac to offer the Cimarron.

    Well, the Mini sort of broke that ground already. At this point in the global auto industry free-for-all, I’m just praying for BMW to be able to survive as an independent instead of being swallowed up into one of the mega corps. If a fwd 1 series helps that, I’m good. Example: Jaguar isn’t Jaguar anymore, it’s Tata.

    For very small,cars, the fwd architecture is a justifiable packaging decision. BMW swears it’s not creeping into their other vehicles. Of course the faithful are holding them to that.

    I apppreciate your concern, amigo.

    Let’s get back to roadsters, and specifically Porsche roadsters. After the 550, this was next. The 1959 718.

    These cars laid the groundwork for racing programs that continue to this day.

    Zero connection: Ibanez Roadstar. Wait...I see now that they did have Roadster as well as Roadstar. Huh.
