LeMons Torture Test Results: BMW E24/E28

The E24 and E28 are pretty similar under the skin, so they get put in the same box here… and in that box, we find mostly sadness! Still, these cars have great LeMons potential, once the bugs have been worked out. » 1/17/10 10:00pm 1/17/10 10:00pm

24 Hours Of LeMons Arse Freeze-A-Palooza Über Gallery: The Bavarian…

PCH, Upscale BMW Coupe Edition: 1967 2000C or 1984 633CSi?

In another setback to French dreams of displaying the All-Time Eternal Project Car Damnation MegaTrophy (which turns into a pile of red powder within a few weeks) at the top of the Eiffel Tower, the hybridized British Leyland machine obliterated the Peugeot diesel in yesterday's Choose Your Eternity poll. The endless… » 5/06/08 5:20pm 5/06/08 5:20pm
