We went to the BMW plant in Greenville South Carolina. That is where they make the BMW Roadster. They had a small museum
of the history of BMW. They left the part about their aircraft engines for the Nazi's.
The Bmw on
the right has the highest crash test rating of any passenger vehicle. That makes it a good pick for "Dents McGee". The little red car is BMW's transitional car. They slowly worked their way from motorcycles , aircraft and marine engines to cars. It would probably fit Aunt Annie like a glove. It also came with a camper for people who don't have friends or are not claustrophobic. Greenville had a nice downtown. I think Marianne would like it because they have a street named Coffee. It even has a green light to tell when to get a refil.
We later went to Bob Jones University. They have this huge museum of Religious Art. They wouldn't let me take any pictures (aren't you lucky). The young Hitler Youth guide wanted to lock my camera up. Well after I assured him Iwould keep it in my holster he let us in. I had a feeling though, that a team of Gestapo agents were following us from gallery to gallery. The art seemed like it would have been more at home in the Vatican instead of some fundamentalist small southern private school. We did not see one copy of a "Footprints" painting. Maybe I will donate one from the local swap meet. It was really an impressive collection. I thought they should have spend some of that $$$ on make up for the co-eds. It was long black dresses, straight hair, black suits and ties and crew cuts. It was kind of like going down to the local high school and finding the "King Tut Collection". The best part was the ride home where I found "Top Tier" Shell gas for $ 1.99/gal.
