Hey John. Have you always been a BMW fan? And have there been any other special cars you have owned previously.


I'm pretty much a car nut, but I barely can set the time on my own watch. Due to that Im really not interested in cars built within the last decade (I Drive systems, push to start etc)

I like the lines of the karman ghia, 914 Porsche, 911 Porsche, Volvo p1800, corvair, some of the corvette, (especially the boat tail)

I never really owned any car of interest prior to an M3. I had a USA spec 1995 Dakar yellow m3 (coupe) when I lived in the states, so when the chance to get the sedan came up, I aquired it.
The sedan is a European spec, and u don't find many of them over here.

Right now I got my eyes on a clk 55 amg, not too modern, an automatic gear box for the wife, more forgiving suspension than the e36, na v8 (last of an era) nice lines, not too big, not too small

^^^ Beautiful but not as rare as the one below.

I spotted this rare beast photographed below driving into a public underground car park ~ 4 years ago when I was on holidays (apparently it was prom day that day in the state I was visiting and the driver came with a little girl (notice the booster seat in the passenger seat) to visit a relative for his/her prom).
C209 CLK DTM AMG convertible, strictly limited to 100 units (the CLK DTM AMG coupé is limited to 100 units, too).

Oh I'd probably leap at the chance to have one.
 
CLK 63 AMG, would be very difficult to find, the CLK 55 AMG was a lucky find in the first place, not to mention the 55 in on the cusp of being a gas guzzler.
 
CLK DTM a  rare beast
 
 
 
 
And to be on topic.
 
 
 
 
 
Thanks to those that came to the Taiwan mini meet
and thanks to those that organized the meet.
I hope there are more to come.

a bit of history



The first ciem to have the wizard signature




 
So glad you kept at it as your current designs blow those out of the water.

 
It's nice to see how Noble have grown as an expert at churning out great looking CIEMs, but their early productions were not too shabby at all. In fact, they probably started out at a relatively high level and just went straight to the stratosphere from there.
 
With that said, I've been thinking a lot about the design for whatever Noble CIEM I will own next. The Lookbook is teeming with excellent samples.
