BMW VS Ford

My uncles 1926 T model and my 2012 M3 this past weekend...Love the juxtaposition. Newest technology and the most basic example of a vehicle side by side.

That Ford is only good for going in a straight line. A BMW will kill it on the twisties. Plus the Ford interior is very dated compared to the BMW.

I wouldn't be surprised if that was one of ford's new cars with a new retro-style design.
