1:43 Minichamps - 1953 BMW 501.

I don’t have too much to say about this. I have never seen one in person. It appears to have suicide doors. I wonder what type of engine it had. I know I could google but I have some bike riding to do today!

I think these old BMWs are interesting because even way back then they had the twin kidney grills. Whoever came up with that famous design cue must really feel good about themselves. 70+ years later it is still being used! Talk about foresight.

This was supposed to be an M6 I bought on Ebay but when it came, it was this and not what I ordered. Since I hardly have anything from this era I decided to be cool and keep the incorrect car. Seller was happy, I was okay. Win win I guess.

Anyway, I’m off to Ciclavia. They are shutting down Hollywood Blvd for us bike riders to take over. Good day all!
