Beautiful Vixen

On my way to the bar last night I stumbled upon one of these amazing automotive beasts. It was slung low and long, looking like some sort of cross between between a Star Tours ship, a BART train, and a Volkswagen bus. Upon closer inspection I was shocked to learn that this was a BMW! A BMW VIXEN!

A vehicle so obscure, it even lacks its own Wikipedia entry. I mean, even Canada’s pride, the Bricklin SV-1, has a Wikipedia entry. Perhaps understandable as there were only 587 Vixens ever made.

Some further research indicates that the Vixen was actually American, with a portion of the cars (homes? craft?) being powered by a BMW-made turbo-diesel, thus earning them the right privilege to brand them.

Apparently the Vixen could earn up to 30 miles to the gallon (!), cost ~$40,000 and included a microwave, a refrigerator, a sink with running water, and a bathroom. Can you imagine the joy of crossing our beautiful country in one of these cosmic starcraft? I say, BRING BACK THE VIXEN!

Until that happy day, feast your eyes on these delightful Vixens.
