Los Angeles is currently in a bit of an architectural uproar, perhaps because the Walt Disney Concert Hall, designed by Frank Gehry, a sort of Mini-Me echo of his Guggenheim Bilbao museum, has finally been upstaged—By a bunch of car junkies.

As I mentioned a few months ago, I sold my 2001 E46 325xiT wagon. After all, I was quite happy—no, in fact, blissful—alternating daily-driving the Z3 and the ’74 2002tii on my eight-mile commute to work at Bentley Publishers.

With a season that ends in October and starts in January, that’s three months of chaos with drivers, teams, manufacturers, and sponsors all sorting out their plans—as well as developing any new cars before the 2016 season begins.
