On this day 12 years ago, I bought a brand new 2000 BMW 328 ci with the sport package. Oh! And 32 years ago today Dan was born!
Anyway, the BMW now has 192,000 miles on it and needed to be replaced (we’re keeping Dan). So today I brought home a 2012 Infiniti G37 s. This is roughly equivalent to today’s BMW 335, except that it’s faster and comes with a ton of included extras for the same price as an unadorned BMW 335. I love the paint on this car. The photo above is a reflection of winter trees on the hood as the car sits in my driveway. The color is called Malbec Black, which is black with a metallic purple fleck that is only visible when the light hits it right. A shiny black car is a thing of beauty.
The picture below is a head-on shot, with a bit of a self portrait included.
