Yep, that's a modern classic right there.

Graduated. I need to find a job so I can start putting V8s into stuff that never had them.

That's really the only reason to live right there. I poured some V8 in my toaster this morning. Mixed results.

She's a DD, and feels as fresh as the day she left the factory. It was already in pretty good condition (only had ~85k miles, I think), but we gave it a complete refresh; hoses, belts, rings, gaskets, clutch, linkage, carpet, dash, touched-up the paint, and did a 1001 other little things. While we were at it we reworked the head, increased stroke, installed a new Borla SS exhaust, and tuned her up to 350bhp, then installed new 5-way CO adj. dampers, larger brakes, 18" BBS wheels, and Michelin PSS rubber. I'm sure I'm forgetting some things... but anyhow, she's now the E28 M5 I've always wanted, and goes like the clappers. I can hang with a new stock 911 (non-turbo) all day, and even out-corner/out-brake them, but still looks close to "normal". She's sort of a sleeper, if an M5 can be a sleeper. Most young guys today just see an older Euro sedan and don't pay attention to the small //M badges, and I've dusted quite a few JDM tuners. biggrin.gif

Engine rebuild and all, you really are a true petrol head, we are kindred spirits my friend :D

 

I recently drove an E34 M5 and totally fell in love with it, when its started waggling its tail and making those six cyl noises only a BMW can make i was sold. Want one.

 

Here is my wagon, i also have a thing for old German sleepers that nobody looks twice at ;) ...kudos if you know what it is.

S2 Avant? Very nice!

I totally dig your M5, Magick Man, those are getting thin on the ground and an immaculate one like yours is just a dream car! I used to have an E46 325Ci until the tranny bit the dust (in the grand scheme of things, it was only a small shot of nitrous, dear service manager! rolleyes.gif ) and they tried charging me almost 10k to replace it. That car's in Lebanon now. Far, far away from me. biggrin.gif

Loved both cars, as I used to drive a RX-8.

Ooooh, this is a thread for me...my other, much more wallet-draining hobby.

 

I currently have 2 cars, one a 1995 Nissan 240sx, other a 1992 Nissan 240sx coupe.  Both have extensive mod lists, I could have bought a damn GTR for what I have into these 2 cars...but I wouldn't trade the fun, cuts, and bruises from the builds for anything!  Both have fully built motors, turbo upgrades, suspension and brake upgrades, etc.  Nothing beats taking your car that you built to the track to thrash it about a bit.  I won't have any good pics until I get home from my deployment though.  Here are a couple of old ones for the time being:

 

The 1995 and motor build:

 

 

The 1992 and motor build:

 

 

 

Old Mercedes-Benz E320 I sold when I went back to school:

Here's my little beastie.

 

It's a JDM 1975 Toyota Celica RA25 GT2000 with 42,000kms on the clock. Completely original except for the Pasco-Fame Bilbo rims. Still needs a few finishing touches done (lowering slightly, tune etc) but it's almost there :-)

Clean!  I like the classic JDM cars.  I would love a 1969 Skyline GT-R Hakosuka.
