BMW 635 CSi E24 (1978)
We’re all allowed to have crushes. Some are healthier than others, usually the ones that fade away with time. A nice and easy reminder that you’re able to feel an unexplicable attraction to something or someone (it’s usually someone).
A recent set of posts by swissstash has made me realize that I’m still not done with this old crush that is the E24.
What worries me is that I had always thought of the E24 as a healthy crush. The one to wink at at the corner of the room, to feel a bit jealous for when others have it. Paul Bracq, its designer, is officialy one of my design heroes. He’s also responsible for the W113 MB platforms and, go figure, the TGV.

If you work on a fancy large corporation where a suit & tie are required, go and slip into the suggestion box a replacement for those: arriving in an E24.
It’s much more efficient. So efficient in fact, that you could arrive in slippers & shorts and still people would think you’re the boss. Or at least, a boss, of sorts.
I can’t look at E24’s without thinking about commiting a few crimes.
