Talking Coming Full Circle

Since last spring I've been involved in an amazing process which has finally come to fruition. Here is the end result:

You can pick up a copy of the April, 2008 issue of Bimmer Magazine if you want to read the whole thing. Out of respect for the magazine and copyright law I ask that you please not post any further scans of the article online, especially while the magazine is still in circulation.

I was going to write a companion post to the article, but after finally reading it after all these months of waiting (thanks again for the scans Evan) I don't think I need to. Dan Proudfoot couldn't have done a better job of writing the story, and I'm glad we've become fast friends over the last few months.

Here are some of my favourite pictures from the photo shoot which weren't used in the article:

If you have any questions please feel free to ask!

they wouldn't let Bob post any scans or images used in the article with his car, you might want to remove the ones you posted that were in the magazine.

congrats BTW, awesome car.

Yeah, take it for a trip through the local Brine solution to celebrate! Request Phil for your next photo shoot too. I think posting this will add to sales of the mag, so these folks shouldn't mind the copyright issues. It will need 235 sized Michelin tires all around for Barret Jackson.
