just scored some nice chairs - Page 2

post #16 of 19
Thread Starter 

lightly modded BMW 2002, the sports sedan that started it all (imho)

the car would run with the 911's of its era (especially the Ti and Tii versions, and there was a rare turbo model too)

this car kind of started the german tuning industry, a company called Alpina (used to make typewriters), and they are still around, started mid 60's, and now make a B7 for BMW

 

I was considering some Bertoia wire chairs, but I'm glad I came across the Eames, the wire chairs were not very comfortable, even with the pad, but these eames are very comfortable, a very nice fit with a bit of give/flex

that's not mine, but very close...

mine was a bit lower, and no fender flairs, but same color and spoilers, and I left the US 'baby buggy' bumpers on also

wheels were campagnolo like below
long gone, got rid of it in the late 80's, put 80k miles on it in 7 years

I have some pics of mine (actually slides) can't upload them

car only weighed 2200 lbs or so

 

found some slides, I need a convertor (is a slide reader to jpeg device made? usb into a computer)

saw one that had some wheels I forgt about, 15" BBS type mesh color coded to the body, those didn't last long on Alaskan roads, lol

not going ito the formal dining room, but an off kitchen table area

 

looking for this type of feel, not as cluttered, home was built by a local architect for himself in the mid 60's, perfect fit
