Recently, I had the wonderful pleasure of attending a lovely little classic car show here in Bamberg, Germany.

The show was held on the factory grounds of Weyermann, a beer malt maker. Actually in typical German fashion their full name is: Malzfabrik Mich. Weyermann GmbH & Co. KG.

Weyermann makes the malts that beer breweries used to make various flavored beers. They make one of the main ingredients for making beer. And they are at the top of their game. Sold in over 130 countries, their … CONTINUED

It was streets ahead of its time at launch and maintains an ageless glow to this day, yet a glance at the calendar reveals the disarming truth: 25 years have passed since the BMW 8 Series was presented to the world at large for the first time. The car’s international fan community duly came together last weekend at its Bavarian birthplace to celebrate the anniversary, with events including a spectacular parade of 120 cars at the BMW Group headquarters highlighting their collective adoration of … CONTINUED

As a college student on a tight budget, Mike was tired of dumping time and money into repairs for his 1965 Ford Mustang. One day, then, he traipsed down to the local used car lot to have a look at a Datsun B210 he’d seen for sale. The Datsun was a fine little car, but on the same lot sat a red BMW 2002. Out of curiosity more than anything else, Mike took it for a test drive. That was all it took for … CONTINUED

Catch our coverage from the 2014 Techno Classica Essen.

There is a reason why I LOVE attending the Techno Classic in Essen… it’s all the cool classic cars! Yup, the quality of the cars on display here and that fact that all the major German car makers are here – at the factory level, makes this show a MUST SEE event each year. It’s the worlds largest classic car show(so says Siha, the organizers) held in Europe. I believe it. I always have … CONTINUED

BIMMERPOST tours the National Auto Museum of Italy, in Turin.

I had read so many good things about this mega museum and it did not disappoint! After the Geneva Auto Show, I headed South to this museum(and to a few other museums) thru Monte Blanc tunnel. That tunnel crossing was the most I have ever paid for a toll, 43 euros one way! But there really isn’t any other way around that mountain range.

I was really impressed with this museum! I think it’s … CONTINUED
