Excuse me for perhaps being behind the times but just how do you derive with the word Beemer in referring to a BMW Motorcycle , and further with the automotive group calling a BMW automobile a Beamer.
I once stood at a parts counter when another customer asked the parts guy for something for a Vette. The parts guy made like he was looking in the catalog and them announced "we don't have any listing for a Vette". Everyone standing there knew the dude meant Corvette, but he had this slang term embedded in his head.
Which again I ask where does Beemer come form????????????
