I loved classic cars for as long as I can remember. Something about the sound, the smell, and the lines of the old cars that drew me in. My notebooks in high school were littered with photographs cut out from magazines and my own attempts at car design. I dreamed of driving up Pacific Coast Highway and through the Redwood Forests in my own classic one day. Last year, I was fortunate to find my E9 that fulfilled that dream. Thank you to SFDon and HBChris for making it happen.

Beautiful car, and great photos. I was only on that road once, in a rented Oldsmobile (yes, it was a very long time ago). Glorious place.

Beautiful photos. I got to drive the PCH in my daughter's 1 week old 2016 Model S 90D Tesla. That was a great drive from LA to San Francisco.

Astonishing, really great photos1 I have done that drive 3 times. Once in my Healey 3000, once in my Coupe, once in a Suburban, towing my Airstream Overlander Land Yacht. Had to pull over a lot in the Suburban to let all the Classics get by. But a most memorable experience. On a side note, does anyone have any experience with that Tivoli Audio in one of the photos? Appeals to my "analog" side.;)

I think it was Henry Kloss's last company before he passed away. Great speaker designer:
