Here is another of my German holiday photos, in honour of Big Cat's Blogtoberfest. This is the BMW headquarters in Munich.
I'm the first to admit that whilst I am quite quick to correctly identify construction equipment, I'm not particularly knowledgeable in the car department.
So when we visited the BMW museum Mr Hoppo Bumpo ogled the cars and took lots of snaps, as I wandered aimlessly looking for information that didn't use perplexing terms like wheelbase, horsepower and turbo-diesel.
So, today I finally get a chance to recall these amazing facts:
- The BMW logo is based on a airplane propeller (as the company originally manufactured engines for aircraft)
- The nickname beemer actually refers to BMW of the two-wheeled variety. Apparently you may call your motorcycle a beemer, but your automobile is in fact a bimmer.
