Vintage Import

Like so many things in Munich, you have this amazing contrast between old and new, classic and modern. On the left, is the modern German Headquarters of Conde Nast Verlag (which opened in 1979), publishing house for popular international magazines that include Conde Nast Traveler, Vogue, GQ, Glamour, Vanity Fair, and approx 107 others that reach 120 million “income-strong” readers. On the right, you have the classic looking government buildings of the ministry of finance. And in the middle is a beautiful Jaguar. I’m not even a car fan, but I (and everyone else who passed by) loved this machine. My guess is one of the execs from Conde was working over the weekend. So next time you pick up one of these titles, know that you’re supporting those “income-strong” residents of Munich.

Jaguars are such beautiful cars, and you've caught this one splendidly.
