I'd be lying if I claimed to be a "car guy." In truth, I view most cars as transportation. However, I admit to a special fascination with German cars. Why? I think it's because they are frequently the best combination of function and form.
This weekend proved particularly interesting from that perspective.
Last night, I had the great fortune of having dinner with Grant Larson. Grant is a Lead Designer at Porsche (notably, a key driver of the original Boxster in 1993 and the new Panamera). His graciousness and willingness to spend an evening sharing thoughts about cars was fascinating.
Today, I visited the Mercedes-Benz Museum. It's definitely worth a visit if one is passing through Stuttgart.
Of course, I became a much bigger fan of Mercedes-Benz when I learned they made a significant number of bicycles in the 1920s.
