BMW 525i

  While not the newest of the fleet, it is the most recent acquired. Bought this for the price of a month of Daughter Servitude. I got a Patio, a clean shed, a painted porch, months worth of porch cobweb removal, firewood splitting and stacking, and general sense of overloarding. She got the car. Ford Logo

  Here's Otto with his new owner. We picked this up in July 2010 after singing a little song. Junior did all the negotiating and knocked off 17% of the sale price through some patient negotiating. The car is in great shape, with good tires and BBS like wheels. Its probably our nicest car. Click for Larger Image

She is also lucky to have a cartridge type oil filter which she can lift out without laying under the car and acting like an oil drop cloth as the upside down filter glugs out all the oil in my hair.

  The radio in this car is so "1995." Has a little slot for a cassette tape- we think that was to back up the trip computer. Here we replace it with a New Audio Package that has a CD slot, two USB inputs, an iPod input and bluetooth speaker phone. Click for Larger Image

  Shortly after acquisition. Junior goes out to roll the windows up to prevent rain from the approaching storm from moisturizing her interior. We weren't too worried about the Patio gettng wet. Click for Larger Image
