BMW 7-Series Cabin Lighting

We recently had a 2017 BMW M760i in through the Consumer Guide fleet for our usual rounds of editor test drives and evaluations. We’re no strangers to high-end luxury vehicles at CG HQ, but even by premium-brand standards, the M760i was one of the most lavishly equipped (and priciest) vehicles we’ve tested in quite a while.

Klairmont Kollection

A bird’s-eye view of one section of the Klairmont Kollections Museum. Note the life-size gas-station replica at the rear of the room, and the dual-level display-case area for vintage scooters and other memorabilia built into the wall.

Nestled into an unassuming neighborhood in Chicago’s North Side is a large yet equally unassuming industrial building that once housed a printing company. Today, that building is home to the Klairmont Kollections, an incredible, 100,000-square-foot private museum that encompasses 300-plus vehicles, along with scads of bicycles and toy cars, a few airplanes hanging from the rafters, and a life-sized replica of a vintage gas station—and that’s just for starters. It’s a jaw-dropping array of automobilia and straight memorabilia that’s enough to keep even a casual enthusiast occupied for at least a full day… but you can’t just walk in off the street and check it out. The Klairmont Kollections might best be termed “semi-private,” since it is usually closed to the general public and available only for private functions such as weddings or corporate/charity events.

1990 Infiniti Q45

1990 Infiniti Q45

Not since the attack on Pearl Harbor has another nation engaged in battle on U.S. soil, at least with the U.S.

Auto industry buffs may remember the “Asian Invasion” of the early Nineties, which was not a battle of military conquest, but one for the attention of upscale car shoppers. And the battle did not involve American interests, at least not directly.

1982 Bustlebacks

The bustleback trio: Imperial (left), Lincoln Continental (center), and Cadillac Seville.

When it comes to automotive styling trends, few movements match the thickly padded vinyl half-roof movement of the late Seventies and early-to-mid Eighties.

Confined to American-brand vehicles, the padded-roof fad become so popular that makers were selling vinyl-roof-specific models in many linups. Trim levels including Salon, Landau, and Brougham often included unique roof treatments along with a nice set of faux wire-wheel covers.
