doors, you can see a row of BMWs
looking out onto the circular gravel
driveway, as if they were welcoming
you to the property. It's almost as if
they are asking, " can we come out
to play? " And, yes, they can come
out to play. All of Lothar's cars are
plated and registered to drive.
This is impressive considering
what's inside.

restore vintage BMWs to their
original glory so that he may drive
and share them with our great automotive
community. I absolutely
love photographing cars, but would
I be able to do his collection justice
after so much time, energy, thought,
and skill were spent restoring them
to perfection?
I found the answer to that
question on a beautiful Sunday
afternoon in March when Jack
Raymond and I met with Lothar at
his unique home in Maryland; a
home which Lothar designed and
built himself. As I pulled into the
driveway I noticed a second structure
on the property, Lothar's garage
and workshop, which houses his
incredible collection of BMWs as
well as the shop space to restore
and maintain them; also designed
and built by Lothar.
With three large glass garage
BMW 328 prior to it being shipped
overseas, I couldn't have imagined
the impact the rest of the collection
would have on me. It was truly
sensory overload (in a good way).
A list of the cars in the garage on
display include: a '38 327, a '72
2002 Baur, a '73 2002 tii, a '73 3.0
CS (E9), an '87 635csi (E24), a '92
850ci (E31) with 6-speed manual
transmission, an Isetta, two vintage
BMW motorcycles, a Z1, a Z8,
and more. Given the fact that Lothar
restored the vast majority of the '37
328 by himself, you'd be correct to
assume he has restored and
