Fountain Square Roundie is a project car in Cincinnati, Ohio.
Fountain Square in downtown Cincinnati was made in Munich, Germany, in 1871.
Roundie is a nickname for this BMW model (due to the round tail lights); ours was made in Munich in 1971.
1871 & 1971, Munich to Cincinnati.
We're a father-daughter team. Eric is a designer who likes cars. This is his first roundie, but years ago he had a 1976 BMW 2002 “squaretail” (later models had square tail lights) which he took on a fun roadtrip. Daughter Sarah is always up for a good project. (There's also a cat, but we're never really sure if he's part of the team.)
