On my way to Montana
Petrol prices roughly at US$ 3 per US gallon. Diesel is more expensive, here $ 3.37 per gallon.
My motor for the Montana trip
Yes, a real Bimmer. Or, to be more precise, a BMW 318is Runabout. For the Bimmer vs Beemer controversy see: www.bmwccbc.org/misc/tech-and-trivia/bimmer.html
Opera House of Kalispell, Montana (1896)
When I saw this, I thought of Klaus Kinski in Fitzcarraldo
The Bruck in Whitefish, Montana
This custom-made bus was in service from 1951 until 1972 between Whitefish and Kalispell. It is called "bruck" because it was a combination bus and truck. 220 HP engine, 10-speed transmission
