A handwritten note from Wes Anderson when I was his personal assistant circa 1999: pic.twitter.com/ZUhdALIw6k— Mike Le (@WriterLe) March 12, 2015
The note in the corner of this note Wes Anderson gave his personal assistant in 1999 is basically the fish crawling out of the ocean onto land of the hipster station wagon.
Though the E39 model 5-Series replaced the E34 in 1997, BMW only introduced the Touring version of the E39 in the 1999 model year. So the answer was yes, Wes. [thanks ben]
