    Museum Item of the Week

    Item of the week: Since 1983, Car And Driver Magazine has put out a “10 Best” list.  It started out as just the 10 best cars for the year, but grew into all sorts of 10 best (or worst) categories.

    The BMW 3 Series first appeared on this …list in 1992 with the E36 body style.  Since then, the E36, E46, E90, and now F30 3 Series has appeared on the list for 22 years consecutively!    Congratulations BMW!  Only one other car model has been on the list more than the BMW 3 Series – that would be the Honda Accord for 27 years.  However, Honda can’t say it appeared for 27 years consecutively.  There were two gaps with a two year absence each time.
    In our collection is the crystal trophy from 1993 for the BMW 325i.  It stands about 11 inches tall.
