Nothing but a Dreamer

by TonyBerkman (editor), Costa Rica, April 02, 2013

George Bernard Shaw once said, “Some people see things as they are, and say, ‘Why?’ I dream of things that never were and say, “Why not?“.

One day in 1986, Gerry Khouri, the youngest brother of 3 athought “why not” try something that most people only dream of. Royce, the guy from Rolls, had the same dream. Though he was the only guy that on his death bed said, "the thing I regret is not working harder?" Can you believe that?

Anyway as for Gerry, he started to work on his dream to buildi a car on his own. He dreamed of a car that was not just a "car" by that would be considered a work of art- that embodies elements of class, elegance and fun.

Well, he built his car that same year. He then made two more and being a great brother gave one to each of his older brothers. This impressed his family so much that they opened a small manufacturing operation in Malaysia.

Twenty seven years later his car, the Bufori, is one of the few luxury cars that are made to order.

for the rest of the story ... "nothing but a dreamer"

p.s. do you know who sang that song?

tony you are not going to believe this, bought one yesterday to carry my diamond speaker balls round in that i now have to mothball until the price of moth's balls go up. Serious, love cars, guy i met picked up genuine 'Cord' car from the states. Very rare. Guy was serious as. When i said to him,"i bet you had to pull a few strings to get that Cord?" he didn't even laugh. He said, "yes i did!" Wouldn't tell me how much he paid for it.

inspiring yet sometimes you need money to make a dream reality. Gerry Khouri had enough cash to build three cars AND a family who could set up a factory in malaysia
