A bit of BMW Isetta fame!
I came across this 1987 Depeche Mode video featuring a ‘56 - ‘62 BMW Isetta 300. You can see the car being used from 1:01-3:00. Beautiful scenery and footage of the features of the Isetta.

A documentary on the M635CSi starring race car driver Nelson Piquet. It is a Dutch production, though Nelson speaks English while he is demonstrating what this E24 can do. Exceptional shots showing the features and dynamics of this classic automobile. Filmed during 1984-1985.

In Memory OfJohn W. Bisset1937 - 2014
It is with sadness we deliver this message. Yesterday we received word that John Bisset passed away Monday night. John was in the BMW CCA from very early on and was one of the founding fathers of the Connecticut Valley Chapter. John has been on the Chapter’s board for near all of it’s 40+ years, and has held about every position from Member-at-Large all the way to President. At one point, in the lean early years, he and Marsh Wilson even loaned the Chapter money to keep it afloat.
John was proud to have been included among those members from the First 5000 who participated in the Oktoberfest Anniversary a few years ago. As we understand, he was also a 55-year member in the SCCA.
As most of you know, John has suffered from Alzheimer’s for several years and it has been a real struggle just to get through day-to-day living. Please keep Barbara, her sons and all their family in your thoughts and prayers at this difficult time.
Click to contact Barbara or Jonathan, who has now taken over Performance Automotive from his parents.
With warm thoughts for John and the Bisset Family,
