My Love affair with BMW

Recommended Posts

If you sell it your truck will break down.  Your truck seems like the sort that would keep running just out of it's stubborn Mexican pride.

went out yesterday to start it and it was DED dead.  

 

 

Threw a charger on the beast and hopefully will let her run for a hour or so today.  I need to get some new headlights in it, as I robbed them for my truck.  

 

Then finish painting it and get back to driving it or sell the thing.

I'm convinced this is the real reason why guys run external kill switches on street rods, not because they run that fast at the track.

I just want to know what nose art you picked for it. I have some old B&W photos my dad took while in the PTO when he was over seas back in 45. I can post them if you like and give you some more ideas.

The Germans make it pretty easy, once you get the car in the air it is less frustrating than working on the dodge.

I wish haha, I would have to talk him down to $1000.

 

Interestingly enough, I haven't paid more than a grand for a vehicle in almost a decade hahaha.  Might explain why I am always fixing them.

The e32 is sold and leaving my hands friday.

On my route to and from the stables to see our horse there is a e28 535is that has been sitting for years.  I asked to the guy yesterday to ask what was up.   said it was his son's son got in an accident in another car and the car has been sitting.

we will see if I get my hands on it or not.  perfect DD car.   It has been long fortold that the M30 series engine is actually what rotates the earth and has been since the dawn of time. 

 

It looks like this

with the e32 gone I have been keeping my eye open for another bmw.  Happens that this weekend I heard word of another e34 touring for sale.  3.0 l v8, but with a 6 speed swap already done.   i've already had a touring, but man I miss that car.  I am seriously considering flying out to cali and picking it up.    Really not a great time in terms of $$ but it is a pretty screaming deal.....Maybe I need to start a go fund me lololololol

I have been getting the urge to build an engine recently so I am thinking maybe a rebuilt m50TU ( engine with Vanos) + 5 speed swap with some head studs... and a hy35 turbo to go with it.  Should net ~300 WHP..in a wagon 

 

 :burnout:

I just got a vw jsw with 2.0l diesel, I'm slowly falling in love with it. I did a few mods already for dependability and been getting steady 49-51 mpg so far, mostly hwy. If I stay at 55-60mph I can probably get close to 60mpg. If I step on it, it's like a mini Cummins just pushes you in the seat and goes all the way to 5000 rpm.
