Randy Jalil has, once again, shown the world what being a car enthusiast is all about by parking his BMW E30 M3 and a friend’s 1984 Volkswagen GTI in his living room in order to protect them from the damage Hurricane Dorian might have caused them.
Jalil first caught the world’s attention back in late 2016 when he shared images online of his silver M3 parked inside as Hurricane Matthew approached Florida. With the threat of Dorian, he decided to do the same thing this year; plus, he also found the space to fit a classic GTI as well. It makes for a pretty epic living room – and a man who is the very definition of a car lover.
Speaking to The Drive, Jalil revealed that his two-car garage was filled by his girlfriend’s 2018 Chevrolet Malibu and his brother’s 2018 Toyota Corolla, so he had no choice but to use the interior of his home instead.
“Nothing fancy, just wanted to protect as many cars as possible. My girlfriend Amber Carpenter was completely for putting the cars inside the house because she knows how much I love my cars! Luckily, we didn’t get any damage in Port Saint Lucie where I reside. There was barely any rain, too,” Jalil added. “Thankfully, everything around the house survived. I do have to admit it’s a stressful time waiting to see where this hurricane was heading and how bad the damage could have been.”
The E30 M3 is one of BMW’s most iconic and desirable cars and it makes total sense for Jalil to want to protect it. In fact, if we owned one, we’d be tempted to park it permanently in our living room, though, admittedly, the missus might have not been that thrilled with the idea…
