I've always loved sport(y) cars. I used to have an MG Midget, then a new MGB. I've had several Porsche cars (911T Targa and a 944 S2 Cabriolet). Of course, there were interminglings with Fords, Chevy's trucks (which I still have), vans, etc. But I've always been a car nut and have read car magazines since I was a kid. I started reading on the BMW cars, went to Sunflower in Topeka, and test drove a BMW. Not sure what it was (1994), but it was different, precise, focused, a real drivers car. I read more and decided to buy one of the first-year E36 M3 Luxury cars, in December 1994, and I still have it. I bought a couple new BMW bikes (still have them), a 2000 R-1150GS, and a 2002 K-1200LTC. I've put over 125K on my M3, and it still runs like it did when it was new. It's never sat a night outside, or driven in the snow, or intentionally driven in the rain. I kind of got the bug several months ago to buy something (like THAT's a good reason?), and considered a used Mercedes Benz wagon, and considered an Audi A4 and A6 Avant (wagon). My son, who is in the USAF, sent me a email picture of an E39 M5 and I said "What was I thinking?", and started my search for an M5, and bought one. In my house garage sitting next to my red M3 is my 2003 Mustang SVT Cobra, sonic blue, and it is an absolute screamer, except I don't drive it anymore. I also have an F350 4x4, and a Mitsubishi Montero, Ltd., 4x4.
As far as my business, home and property goes, I own a valley right off of I-70, at exit 301.
