My Dad logged in ~24K miles on it. The car was garaged except when he drove it. Probably never spent more then 2 hours in the elements for more then 2-3 hours at anyone time. I hope these pictures provides you a glimpse into the way my loving father took care of his car. It's probably this one of nicest lowest mileage 1994 E36 in the country. I feel honored to own it and will keep it my family forever.
Found this at his home. Had to bring it home. A model replica of his 1994 325I

That's awesome. I've hunted for a dakar yellow coupe model, I'd love to have one for my desk at work. I wouldn't mind painting a cheap enough one either.

I've seen some awesome 1:18 scale M3 ones but they go for stupid amounts of money if you can even get them. There are some 1:43 scale ones that don't look that nice, and are also extremely expensive. It would be cool but im not paying >$200 for a novelty like that.

If I could find euro sedan tails for less than I paid for the ones on there they'd be gone

Cool shots, and a great setting! Nice work. Constructive criticism: consider the rule of thirds when taking photos.

Yeah, the thing about photography is that there are "rules", but they don't have to be followed all the time. The rule of thirds often helps take an image from being a snapshot to being a photograph. It usually just adds a little flavor to things. But like I said, rules are meant to be broken occasionally.

Good thing I didn't see those at BF.E. I'd have burned them. I'm surprised I didn't notice them when you did the "let's hit Don's vert" donut at the gas station Sunday morning.

Do me a huge favor and see who made that model and what scale it is. It should have the manufacturer's name and scale size on the bottom. That thing is gorgeous. I collect die cast BMW models, and I've never see one like that.
