I admire this guy! Great job!
Here is a 41 minute You Tube video of the restoration.Enjoy.
The restoration documentary is really amazing. That they have a hot tank big enough to dip the entire chassis is quite extraordinary. I wonder how many such facilities exist in the world, where an entire chassis can be dipped. I worked in and around restoration shops as a young man, and have taken an interest this work my entire life, and I have never seen anything equivalent here in the US.
The rich history BMW has reminds us why we admire them in spite of atrocities now being made, like the X5 and X6.
Not a BMW fan, but this has to be one of the most beautiful cars ever made!
And the fact that it belong to the King, only adds up to its mystique…
Thankfully, on this one he didn’t have to go shooting it …
This is one of your better videos, Petrolicious. All are superior, but this one is special in its understated presentation of the work involved.
There are not that many pumpkin farms with barns in Half Moon Bay, and on week end drives, when I was working at Stanford University in nearby Palo Alto, during the 1980s, I must have passed by all of them. They harbored special things. Artist studios. Ramshackle gardens. Stables, a childrens camp, and yoga retreats. And one of them held this car.
I typically love your videos and think they are probably the most well-done amongst the many on the Internet (production values are off the charts); but on this one, the music drowns out the speaker at the beginning (through the first 2:30 or so) and at the end again. Part of it is his accent; but without the music, he’s easily understandable.
Again, great video, just maybe tone down the music a tad. Thanks.
To be fair, while I didn’t love the music, it was more about the volume drowning out some of the narration by the driver. That rarely happens on the excellent Petrolicious videos; but on this one, it did affect it a bit.
although not a BMW fan, this is a really inspired design with…………..italian flair!!!!!!!!!!!
There is one on display in the lobby of the Petersen Museum in Los Angeles at the moment. I don’t know if you get to LA much, but it will be there for a while.
I really enjoyed watching this short film. Petrolicious please produce a long documentary about this car and the restoration. This car and its story is too intreging for just a short clip. Car lovers like me yearn for more when the subject is so sweet and desirable.
beautiful car nice video just get rid of the background music.
