5-Car Dream Garage Challenge: Our Picks

Image credit: Top Gear
This challenge has been making the rounds on social media of late in enthusiast circles. Being car enthusiasts ourselves, we couldn't pass up the opportunity to argue amongst ourselves, draw up PowerPoint presentations, fill out Excel tables, call each other stupid, and just generally spending half the day at the office not doing the work that we are supposed to.

So, needless to say, we have taken the liberty of drafting out a list of 5 cars that we wouldn't mind having in our dream car garage.

The #SharkNoseDiary BMW Goes to Luxury & Supercar Weekend



Our BMW was in a luxury collector car show this weekend.

You didn't read that wrong. Our #SharkNoseDiary BMW 635CSi somehow made it to a car show.

I repeat again. Our $2100 classic BMW was somehow in the same auto show as some $500,000 Porsches, Ferraris, Maseratis, Paganis, a Bugatti Chiron, and other timeless classic collector cars at the show.

[Previously on #SharkNoseDiary: I bought a 1987 BMW 635CSi for $2100 and figured, eh, maybe the organizers at a local luxury car show would like my car displayed alongside their exotic collection of brand new Bugattis. Because why not?]

I am not even sure how that happened. This is our second year participating in this fantastic event (last year, we had a Porsche 911 convertible), and this time around I thought maybe I'd just give it a shot and just ask nicely if the organizers would let me display my 29-year-old BMW.
