Some women have a heel fetish... I have a steering wheel fetish... 1f643.png🙃 I collect vintage BMW steering wheels. 9 wheels total.

Starting top to bottom...

380 Moto-lita

2 380 GT GLAS wheels

380 Horn Ring

400 NK wheel

2 380 Petri’s

The other two are in TESORO and DERBY.

One of these will be going in TESORO ... can you guess which one? 1f60f.png😏

Hope some of you can make it this Saturday Nov 4th in Sausalito! Would be nice to have some 02 support amongst the vintage Alfa Romeo's and vintage Ferrari's ! 1f609.png;-)

From Biscotti Cars and Coffee in Sausalito, CA :

Anyone who thinks that the car gene is limited to males, our November Feature Car owner will afford a welcome surprise. The owner of our car is a beautiful lady with exceptional expertise regarding the marque of her car who has supervised expert restoration on her 2002 model of that marque.

She appears to be blessed with an autosomal dominant car gene. This blessing has also benefitted some expert mechanics with large mortgages and college tuition expenses. The results in our Feature Car show the close correlation between restoration quality and reward for skilled automotive craftsmen. Such a clear link between performance and reward is regrettably not always evident with those who feed at the public trough kept full by hapless taxpayers.

You are cordially invited to attend Biscotti and Cars from 
8-10 AM on Saturday, November 4, 2017 at Poggio in Sausalito. Free parking for attendees is available during the event in the Bank of America parking lot across the street from Poggio. You may view many beautiful cars driven into this lot by attendees at our November event.

Our November 2017 Feature Car is a stunning and
immaculate BMW 2002 in deep gloss black paint.
This 2002 car is owed by Lisa O2Princess who is
a true BMW aficionado. This 2002 was featured in
a lengthy article in Petrolicious. Furthermore Lisa's 
original, lightly restored BMW 1600 was recently
featured on the TV Program Jay Leno's Garage .
