Just saw the new Daniel Craig movie "Knives Out." Great film, and one of the co-stars is a lovely silver on blue 1972 3.0CSi which is for sale at a sports car dealer about an hour from where I live. There were a few nice driving scenes with it. Daniel Craig doesn't drive it, but Chris Evans, probably best known for portraying "Captain America" drives it. Here is a link if anyone wants to learn more about the car in the movie. https://copleymotorcars.com/?showroom=1972-bmw-e9-3-0-csi-coupe

Must be fun in the snow. I washed, waxed, vac'd and put away my M Coupe for the season last week, as I don't take it out in the snow. There was this one time, however, that a surprise early storm dropped 2-3 inches quickly wheh I was an hour from home in a direction away from any of the major roads. I was running allseasons, but it was a little hairy in the twisties, so more power to you. Also glad to see that I am not the only one who liftsa BMW with wooden pads on the lift arms themselves. Took me forever to get the car up on the lift the first time. Now I have different colored tape on the floor for the rear tire for every vehicle I lift to save time.

Been awhile since I posted on here, actually took a bit of a 2 month break from SF altogether. Glad to be back though. Figured this was a noteworthy thing to share with the thread.

I was driving in an affluent Jewish neighborhood in Margate City, NJ on my way home and something hit me in the corner of my eye...something yellow & Italian.

There was a Mercedes SL parked in front. Looks like it’s been sitting awhile, considering there’s stuff piled on either side.

Talk about a Holy Grail Car

I still can't get over how hideous the C8 is.
I finally got to see it. I’m afraid you’re right. It’s very polygonal in the metal, and there are so many lines, creases and vents seemingly just there for the sake of having a design feature. But then they’re so incoherent and they make parts of the car disproportional to each other. All in all, it’s a mess.

I did like the interior very much, though. Well done to GM on that at least.

It looks like a design from a shitty anime.

I've had a long distance love affair with that car for years. One of these days I shall have a 3.0 CS in my garage as well as a 1969 MB 280sl (W113)

and an Alfa Romeo GTV 1750 (I prefer the 4 headlight slatless grille and smaller tail lights of the 68 & 69 model years)

Some great car spotting! The yellow Countach is cool, but I prefer the pre-Anniversary Edition without all the strakes. I haven't seen an Avanti more than 5 years.

Some great choices to have in your garage. I love the lines of the 3.0CS. My uncle had a blue on tan one when I was a little kid. He also had a 280SL, but that was before I was born. I like the GTVs...really cool cars and a beautiful design. A friend has a 2 headlight model that he has used in vintage car rallies.
