1972 BMW 3.0 CS Coupe Is A Stylish Member Of The Family

Tom McComas Senior is a simple man with only a few indulgences: family, friends, and BMWs. Several months ago we profiled him and his son around a very special R60 motorcycle that has been passed down from when he bought it new to his son Tom Jr., Hollywood Stuntman, who rides it around the streets of Los Angeles to this day.

That BMW R60 would be the machine that would start a life long love affair with the marque, leading to an exceptional circumstance around his son’s birth, and a CS available to buy in Joliet Illinois. “I ran into the dealership and said to the man, “Don’t sell that coupe! My wife is in labor and I’ll be back in the morning to buy it.” As he was running out the sympathetic manager of the dealership said to his salesman, “If you don’t sell it to that man, you’re fired.”

He returned shortly, bought the car, gave everyone in the dealership cigars, drove back to the hospital and picked his wife and newborn up «starting them off in style».

Car Magazine samples all-new Eagle Low-Drag GT Coupe

Via autoblog: We really like the idea of resto-modding: taking something old, fitting modern components and accouterments and putting it back on the road. It’s the single best way to preserve classic designs for future generations while making sure that the horrible, antiquated driving experiences aren’t there to scare people off.

Eagle, in the UK, is one of the best in that respect. The small firm takes old Jaguar E-Types and transforms them into modern creations that can brake, handle and accelerate like they never could from the factory. Eagle’s latest creation is one we’ve seen before – the Low Drag GT Coupe.

With its beautiful looks and intoxicating engine note, can you really blame us for posting another video on this 700,000-pound ($1.17 million in a straight exchange at today’s rates) masterpiece? Car has a video review of the new model, and it’s really worth a watch
