2009 BMW M3 Sedan: Now My Kids Call It the Mtree

December 07, 2009

"You want me to put this tree on THAT car?" the Xmas tree guy said in amazement.

"Yup," I replied. "It'll be fine. It's only a 10-footer."

"Whatever pal, it's your car."

The best part was on the way home, when we stopped at a redlight next to a guy in a Suburban with teeny five-foot tree on his roof. He thought I was a fool. And I was thinking the exact same thing about him.

And no, the tree did not damage the BMW.

Fact is, before the SUV began its reign as America's defacto familymobile 20 or so years ago, millions and millions of Americans got their Christmas trees home on the roof of a family car, and they did it that way for 80 or 90 years. Yesterday I proved this is still possible, regardless of what that jerk in the Suburban thinks.

Besides, now my kids call it the BMW Mtree.
