Automotive Bucket List

Autoblog, an online automotive news site, offers industry related news, reviews, and commentary on anything and everything auto related.  One of their most popular and original features is the video series “1001 Car Things To Do Before You Die,” the ultimate bucket list of automotive experiences. 

Starring auto enthusiasts Jessi Combs and Patrick McIntyre, the series follows the hosts as they check one more adventure off the list each episode.  Currently at #414, the series began almost a year ago with “Graduate from a High Performance Driving School.”  The December 2011 episode featured the hosts preparing for the remaining 1000 automotive experiences by attending a two-day high-performance Skip Barber Racing School class at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca in California.

Ten months later, Jessi and Patrick have traveled to Germany to pick up a brand new BMW M3 for episode #414: “Buy a Car for European Delivery.”  In addition to having the opportunity to tour the factory where your new car was built, BMW’s European Delivery program offers a VIP car buying experience with special access to the BMW Museum and their world headquarters.
