BMW 3.0 CSL

Introduced in May 1972, the 3.0 CSL was a homologation special built to make the car eligible for racing in the European Touring Car Championship. 1,265 were built.

The "L" in the designation meant leicht (light), unlike in other BMW designations, where it meant lang (long). The lightness was achieved by using thinner steel to build the unit body, deleting the trim and soundproofing, using aluminium alloy doors, bonnet, and boot lid, and using Perspex side windows. The five hundred 3.0 CSLs exported to the United Kingdom were not quite as light as the others, as the importer had insisted on retaining the soundproofing, electric windows, and stock E9 bumpers on these cars. The CSL was never sold in the United States.

Inside the Rambler Ranch, One of the World's Greatest Automotive Collections Hiding in Rural Colorado - The Drive​

Whether or not you're an AMC diehard, Rambler Ranch is quite simply one of the greatest automotive treasures on the planet.

America has many excellent car museums scattered across the country: The Henry Ford in Dearborn, the Petersen in LA, the LeMay in Washington...the list goes on.

For whatever reason, it typically doesn’t include Rambler Ranch—one of the greatest collections in automotive history, tucked away in rural Colorado, unknown except to the most ardent fans of American Motors Corporation.

That changes today.

Situated down an unsuspecting dirt road outside the town of Elizabeth, the Rambler Ranch contains the world's largest collection of Nash, Rambler, and AMC cars. Over 250 vehicles are packed into multiple buildings, with another 500 or so parts cars sitting out in the “Boneyard.”

Rare memorabilia and promotional materials cover the walls, floors, and shelves. It is an impressive sight to behold, even for non-car enthusiasts.

For AMC people, it's essentially heaven. For everyone else, it's utterly captivating.

Concorde 002 - the second prototype to fly, preserved at the Fleet Air Arm Museum in Yeovilton, UK. Interestingly, it has a number of differences from the production version, including a very different nose and rear access via stairs. The interior is maintained as it was when it was a test aircraft.

Backdoor neibours used to have one of these. Very pretty but not that quick.

Citreon hydraulics too IIRC.
