Thanks to BAT... This 1990 BMW Z1 (chassis WBABA91050AL03825) is the third example on US soil we’ve featured. It’s fully legal up to 2,500 miles per year on a DOT “Show Car Exemption”, which we’re really happy to finally see photographed and included as part of a listing. In two more years it can run as many miles as you want. Aside from their novel doors, these are spectacular driving little roadsters, and this one has low mileage and a hardtop as well. Find it here on eBay in Anaheim, California for $45k OBO.

Napier "Art Deco City" poster campaign Posters.
Napier City, New Zealand, destroyed in 1931 by a powerful earthquake, was completely rebuilt in the style of the time, which happened to be Art Deco. It is one of the world’s foremost Art Deco cities and arguably the most pristine. The Napier City Council wanted to create a distinct image for itself and to claim ownership of the “Art Deco City” moniker—important to them, as some 50 cruise ships visit each summer. New Zealand’s Adplus Communications created clear signage and posters in the Art Deco-style to advertise the city boundary as well as notable areas—the port, airport and keys roads into the city.
