    Museum Item of the Week

    2014.7.1“M Flight” The artist of this piece has always been a BMW Motorsport racing fan, so this is where he drew his inspiration for this project. New Year’s Day is a very important holiday in the Japanese culture, and it’s customary to wish your friends and family heartfelt good wishes for a positive and prosperous new year. As an artist of Japanese descent, he is holding onto this tradition by creating this hand-crafted, floating sculpture as a fun BMW memento to celebrate BMW’s rich Motorsport history and to wish all his passionate BMW-enthusiast friends, a happy and prosperous new year.

    The three flying origami cranes represent BMW’s early involvement in aviation, and the three colors reflect the original BMW Motorsport racing colors of the 70s, which eventually became the recognizable Tri-color M logo on all of BMW’s modern high-performance vehicles of today. To complete the sculpture, the artist incorporated the iconic Motorsport roundel logo that BMW race teams wore proudly during competition in the 1970s, as a tribute to the glory days when the mighty 3.5 CSL dominated all the racing circuits in Germany and Europe.

    IMG_4474_1000x666 IMG_4476_1000x666 IMG_4479_1000x666 IMG_4482No museum item of the week today because we have been busy getting the warehouse organized for two open house events tomorrow.  We will have visitors from Sharkfest (E24 6 Series) and Schuh Syndikat (E36/8 Z3 M Coupes) stopping by throughout the day to tour the Foundation Library, Archives, and Museum.

    Thank you to three Sandlapper BMW Chapter members for loaning their cars to display in our museum.  Brett Baker’s 1999 Z3 M Coupe, Marcus Schall’s 1988 M6, and Michael Mitchell’s 1989 325is.  We have one more special car arriving later today and possibly two more tomorrow to add to the displays.

    Thank you to Ian Branston and Larry Hall for helping get the warehouse organized.  We appreciate you volunteering here.

    We are looking forward to the open house events tomorrow.  The cars have been cleaned up (lots of pollen in this area). Look for pictures of the open house tomorrow.

    IMG_1512Baby Bimmer Brew 20W/50 Pale Ale.  This beer was created for the 1999 BMW CCA Oktoberfest by the Hoosier Chapter.  We have acquired an unopened bottle of the brew for our collection. It is unusual to find anyone collecting unopened bottles of beer for years, but this one survived.
