The BMW 3-Series is one of those cars that is loved by many: Enthusiasts, regular consumers, folks that buy them and hang onto it until it dies, folks that lease them for 24 months and dump them, etc.
There's plenty of diversity in the BMW 3-Series ownership pool.
Of course this means that deep in there, stories of love and joy prevail.
In a new Vimeo-based web series, Frazer Spowart is documenting these people and their cars. Our hats are off to him.
In one of his installments, he captured David Duran's story. The owner of a 1987 BMW 325i for the last 20 years, it has been his daily driver and "his pride and joy."
Now, I have to say I find it particularly intriguing that one of the first elements he mentions is how the vehicle sounds. For those of you who asked "what enthusiasts do you around," it's folks like this, fellas.
This is a story of one man's love for his car. David Duran has been driving his '87 BMW 325i for the last 20 years, it's his daily driver and his pride and joy. The E30 is considered by many as one of the finest BMW's ever made and has a huge following in the car scene worldwide. Dave's E30 is a classic example of keeping the dream alive, it looks as good today (if not better) than the day he got it and his dedication to the vehicle is quite humbling.
This is the first of many videos to come where I will be exploring cool cars and people's relationship to them.
Many thanks to David Duran for giving me your time and sharing your story. Thanks to my friend Dennis Burnett for helping with second camera and some much needed encouragement, and to my fiance Jessica Little for help with graphics.
