    Default Family Collection

    My whole family has a huge thing for classic BMW's.... so when I came back to Mercer Island, WA from Spokane for Thanksgiving, we had a little photo shoot on a beautiful November day.

    From the front, left to right:
    1. My 1980 733i, work in progress/daily
    2. Dad's latest aquisition... a 1983 633csi 5 speed. Mint with 180k, and newer 850i wheels.
    3. Me and Dad's ongoing 1981 320i project: lowered on H&R springs, staggered Alpina 15x6 and 15x7 wheels, Recaro buckets and an LSD out of a 320is, and new paint.
    4. The Family Project: 1975 2002 'automatic'. All the welding and bodywork was done by me and my brothers, the engine work by me and my dad, the interior and carpet by my mom. The family did everything on this car but spray the paint!

    Anyways, I know they are not all stanced (yet) but I thought it would be cool to share these pics, and how into bimmers my family is. My dad was SO glad to see me back in a bimmer after a brief VW stint...

    Picture credit go to kamberkid (aka Rob)

    Happy Holidays!

    Lovely collection, but you need to get them a little more friendly with the pavement.

    Thanks for the comments everyone. The 633 and the 2002 should be a bit more "friendly with the ground" soon

    I think your dad posts in the E24 section on BF.c, that car looks familiar.

    ^^ yeah he is on BF.c all the time. I had never driven an e24 before this one... what a great driving car! They feel planted, yet comfortable.

    And, no, it wasn't just the pleat in the pants. It was a full fledged man-love-car boner.

    DAMN!! So jelly! Have you done suspension work on the E24? if it was built before October it should be a E12 chassis car like mine.
    Vegas love! When I'm not doing dumb car stuff. I sell homes, so I can afford to do dumb car stuff!!
