  1. I’ve always like the “Mini cooper” series of cars. Until I found out it’s a classic car for mistresses… 🙄 The museum was lovely though!

      1. Yes it is… Unfortunately it gained that reputation where a few Chinese TV shows portrayed mistresses driving mini coopers… But I still like that model and would love to own one one day!

      2. So do I! And you could be creative with a Mini Cooper. You can paint nearly everything on it and the car still looks cool 🙂

  2. I’m not much of a car person, but I usually enjoy visiting car museums. When I went to Munich, the BMW Welt was still under construction, but even back then the futuristic museum was already quite a sight as viewed from the grounds of the BMW headquarters.

    1. Same here. I visited the BMW Museum just because of the architecture. Not a fan of BMW. For Porsche, I like both the architecture and the cars, although I cannot name a single one 🙂

  3. Hi Len.

    What a great car post! Thank you. When we visited Munich, BMW museum was closed. Sigh. You forgot one me important car branch – Opel! Opel started to make cars in 1899. In my family we have had 5 Opel cars. The last one which we had was Opel Vectra OPC, 2.8 and motor V6 with 280 hp. We had it between 2003-2012. It was fantastic car. On German “Autobahnen” we drove:

    242km/h = 150.4mi/h

    Now we have second BMW. First was big, but we needed it. Now we have small one. In this post, I have couple of photos about it:

    Reindeer1 are cute

    Thank you.
