Flag FranceBMW E30 | An important birthday to be celebrated soon

Taking pictures of the diamond black 318is beauties on Sunday reminded me of something. A couple of weeks ago, while looking for Drive-by Snapshots in Strasbourg, I found an almost immaculate BMW E30 324d in an industrial area. The sign on the roof pointed to a used car dealership I would have otherwise missed. The silver car was for sale, but an old diesel isn’t really desirable to own in Germany due to high taxes… unless it is 30+ years old. Well this particular birthday will be celebrated in the not too distant future.

BMW Museum München | automotive photography by Sebastian Motsch (2010)

BMW Museum München | 2009

The BMW Museum in Munich is utterly beautiful after it has been rebuilt and reopened in 2008. The way the cars are displayed is exquisite. They glow like jewels, each one being highlighted perfectly. Visiting the museum on a Saturday just before Christmas gave me almost perfect conditions for taking pictures – there was hardly anybody around. Would I go back there? Definitely yes, I can highly recommend this place to anyone interested in cars.

BMW E12 525i

When I found the original picture, I instantly decided that it deserved a nicer background. The 70’s color of this BMW E12 5-Series really stands out – and the shadow line conversion adds to it. Not much else was done, I just added a couple of period correct alloy wheels and lowered it.

Biarritz Chateau d'Ilbarritz France | Drive-by Snapshots by Sebastian Motsch (2009)

Lost places | Biarritz, Château d’Ilbarritz

Flag FranceLost places | Biarritz, Château d’Ilbarritz

Biarritz, France. A beautiful sunny and warm day in spring. I was driving around randomly, looking for interesting things to take pictures of. Finding the old Château d’Ilbarritz by chance, I hiked up the hill to have a closer look. Quite an impressive building, overlooking the Atlantic Ocean and the Biarritz Golf Course. Peeking over the fence was rewarded by a nice surprise: two classic cars enjoying the early summer sunshine, completely undisturbed. An 02-Series BMW and a Renault R4, both early models with more chrome trim than the later models.
