BMW touts each its cars as being the Ultimate Driving Machine. If that's really the case, then why was today's Nice Price or Crack Pipe E36 M3 ultimately driven so little?
Serviceable cars priced under a grand are like catnip around here, and yesterday's fun and funky Tercel Wagon poofed a lot of tails. Even though it looked like it had been rode hard and put away wet, the Tercel has a rep for toughness, and that went a long way in making the resulting vote a continental divide - 78/22 - for that Colorado compact. And that was with over a quarter million miles under its Continentals.
