I have a bias opinion. Everyone does. I didn’t want to just post up the obvious choice of the car everyone loved this past year. I wanted to share the car that made the biggest impact to me personally. Now to narrow down to one single car as the car of the year, is really impossible. There are SO many beautifully crafted cars making their debut this year and they all deserve all the respect I can give. But, like I said I had to choose one car that made the biggest impact on me. It took me literally several hours to choose one, but I think I made the right choice. You see, cars usually look very different in person. Which is a big reason why I love H2O so much. So much variety of cars seen online in one place. I also love the guys who wait until H2O to actually unveil their newest setups or builds. No teasers on the popular site’s and forums. During H2O, while the sun was setting and the rain started to fall, we made a pit stop at a 7-eleven. Walking out Matt Waln pulled up with his BMW E38 and my heart skipped a beat. I stood in front of that 7-eleven and stared at that car until he left. Such a elegant car with a just-right drop and beautiful set of OZ Futuras. The car isn’t “stanced out”. The lip of the wheels aren’t siting on the other side of the fender. It sits, just right. It’s a moment I will never forget. Now, of course there have been fully built cars out there, with a shit load of custom work, a lot more work that ever will go in this E38. But throughout the year no other car effected me as much as this one.
Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. I give you the beauty I beheld in 2011.
Until next year.
