¿Puede un coche ser más bonito?






A few weeks ago I had the chance to drive a car that I only have ever seen sitting behind ropes or rolling across a prime time spot in a high profile auction.  That car was a grey 1957 Mercedes 300SL Gullwing.  I was in disbelief when the owner asked if I wanted to pilot it down the open runway with my wife.  Knowing this was a one in a lifetime chance, I didn’t hesitate to open up the door and maneuver in.  For the owner of this beautiful machine this is the way to fully enjoy this masterpiece of a car.  Keeping the car driving on the road is the way it is meant to be enjoyed and not stuck in a museum or private collection.

This 300SL Gullwing is the culmination of a thirty year dream.  This car doesn’t represent one piece in a collection, it is the entire collection.  This is a dream that has come to fruition after 30 years of hard work and getting oneself into a position to own the car that has been yearned for for thirty years.  For myself, the idea of dreaming for one car and working hard for years and years is truly inspirational.  It helps me keep the dream alive for the cars that I desire to own in the years to come.

When I first came across this story I was in disbelief that there was someone who drives a car of this magnitude often and all across the country in various states of weather.  Knowing there was someone who was doing so brought a smile to my face and made me happy that this car was being enjoyed in a way it was meant to be.  Other Gullwings in museums and private collections have their place in preserving their place in history but there is just something about knowing that you can come across one of these on the open road or on your favorite drive is mind blowing.

A special thanks to Tom of 02again.com for all of the help he has given in setting things up and subsequent videos.  If you need some great parts for your BMW 2002, check out his site.

Did you know this car requires 4 gallons of oil?  Yes, gallons.  The oil change interval is every thousand miles due to the direct injection.  Crazy.

Another Skin by Akiko Shinzato

This collection by Akiko Shinzato is a series of jewellery around the face since facial features are the most important parts to the first impression and what most people care about. It explores how simply and easily you can change your appearances with a piece of leather or crystals, and it consists of two series: Wearing makeup and Putting on someone’s identity. In the crystal series “Wearing makeup,” the wearer adopts the masked features of a painted clown. In the leather series “Putting on someone’s identity,” a wearer mixes her own facial features with that of others; whereas she looks at herself reflected in mirrors at the same time. Each piece of the collection partially hides the facial features of the wearer whilst revealing a whole other identity.
