"You can quote me" over at AG in a Card Free Zone

  Time for a new challenge at The Outlawz Anything Goes in a Card Free Zone and the optional theme is...You can quote me! Use a quote or be inspired by a quote! 

I chose to highlight a moment at Mecum Auction with a digital layout featuring a quote from Chris Bangle. "Cars are the sculptures of our everyday lives!" According to BMWBlog, "He (Chris Bangle) is responsible for many great cars including the Z3, Z4 and the E63 6 Series.  However, the car that most people will remember him by is the E65 7 Series."  

Every year, my guys (husband and son) take a week to go to the Mecum Auction in Indy.  I don't go, but I send them on a hunt for photos I can use in layouts!  This year, I asked them to find a BMW Z line car since Bangle's designs are incorporated in the entire BMW lineup, including the BMW Z4, 1, 3, 5, 6 and 7 series.  The actual design credit of this particular car goes to Anders Warming...I think, but it was built on the design of Bangle??  Don't quote me on this; I'm not a car history expert...I don't even play one on tv!  hahaha

Bangle is best known for the "Bangle Butt"!  If you are interested in the history, you can find it HERE.
