I'm the journalist, made in 1976 model year ;) , daily writing for the local title, monthly for ClassicAuto.
The Member of BMW AutoKlub Poland and the oldtimer section of Automobilklub Wielkopolski.

I had been falling in love with postwar and later strange cars.
That's why my US No.1 is Chevrolet Corvair II. :P

I own "antiques": 03/1983 Skoda Garde (Pra-Rapid) and 10/1983 BMW E28 525e. Skoda - my first car - is dusty "mummy" now, waiting for the full renovation. Around 2001 she looked that:

5er preserves zero-rust condition, thanks to 23 years in Monte Carlo climate and keeping away salty & dirty winter roads in Poland. Monte Carlo parking (no) rules gave few scratches and dents at original body panels with factory Opalgrün metallic paint. Too bad. :/ After some treatments on mechanical organs (due to past owner's too short and sloooooow-moooootion trips), then gently run-in, deeper breathing on +100 km journeys, she runs very well now as silent, brisk, surefooted cruiser, with outstanding mileage when you drive middle-fast and fluently (just 7 l/100 km - 40 mpg UK / 33.6 mpg US - is easy to reach at 110 km/h cruising speed; oldie powered by petrol 2.7-litre engine matted with automatic transmission). She serves legendary sheer driving pleasure in pure saute form..

Since January 2009 my excellent long-range coach is DuchXess, old faitful 3/2000 Citroen Xantia 1.8-16V.

These elegant wedged lines by Bertone make a deep impression today yet. ;)
We perfomed flauless trouble-free +130,000 km and counting.
Deserves my respect & affection. AC works still!

Since February 2017, on my district's patroling I drive Cruddy ;) late 2013 Toyota Yaris Hybrid.

It's simply, analogue & dull. And teases me with poor quality (!) in many details.
However, Hybrid Synergy Drive is Machiavellianly clever powerplant.
Geee, I've been became the hybrid freak!
