“The times when I’m not bored is when I’m flying, when I’m flying my hang glider, when I’m racing the M Coupe—because all of a sudden the world moves up to my speed.” Airline pilot Alex McCulloch is a great judge of what it means to travel quickly and effortlessly through the air, and so his choice of a BMW M Coupe is telling.

I had been searching for the kind of car that when I walk away from it and look back, I'd smile (and I still do that every time).

When the Caccavos made the “$10,000 Rule,” Dean was on the hunt for a BMW E28 M5.

Dean enjoyed the E28 platform so much that he eventually bought a 1987 535is for DonnaRae–for less than $10,000, of course.

What a magnificent car they built, right into a wall. Rule and popularity changes in the racing world quickly swung this purpose built production racer into obsolescence. When it finally went racing, it lost. A lot. Proving to be a costly mistake for its creators, the Motorsports division's budget was slashed, and at the time, the M1 was labeled a monumental failure.

At some point in in South Dakota, I think, I entered a small town where a group of teenagers gaped at my strange small car. Later on, I had an exciting stretch in remote Wyoming where the fuel tank's range was tested; the fuel efficiency was really bad. And approaching home, I drove through a big cloud of bugs (in Moses Lake, Washington), which overwhelmed the wipers and washer system...
