Well umm i dont know how to start... well i guess ill start at the VERY beginning.
when i was 16 my dad brought home a 1986 535i from work that they where going to scrap.and i fell in love i begged him to keep it and it eventually became my first car. i drove it for a year untill i found a BADASS 91 k5 blazer so i sold the car and got the truck... i regretted ever since.

thats my old e28
my old k5
Fast forward four years (i cant belive its been that long
) and me and my friends decided we all wanted to get cars and have a cool little club so we can be cool and drive to car meets and stuff together and take pictures. i was looking on the good old craigslist and found an E28 for 700 bucks i called the guy up he told me it ran and it was a 535i with a 5 speed.. SOLD me and my friends drove an hour away and saw this.
IT WAS A 528E AUTO
But it wasnt too rusty (so i thought) so i talked the guy down $300 and towed it to my friends house that night.
towed it with my daily 84 k5 diesel (23MPG FTW!)
at my friends that night
the car stayed at my friends for a week untill i broke the news to my parents
i got the car home and started to tear it apart.
Testing out some low
cutting out ALL of that rust i found
Cleaning out my trunk lol
my drift car AWW YEAH BRAH
i was able to pick out some FREE wheels from work
17x9s i love how they look
picked up some euro grills brand new from the warehouse in Germany!
A week later i was looking once again on craigslist i found a set of sport seats, a m30 with trans/ecu, and a drive shaft for $650! i think i got a good deal!
i pulled up the carpet and found this
All cut out!
Got some free tires! there runflats... so dang heavy...
wheel gap is like vaginas the more fingers the worse
as you can all see my friends always are hard at work helping me
got an OEM tail panel
And that brings me to today! i made me some floor pans
and then my friends called so i took a break to go play in the mud!
I have huge plans for this car. and its gonna be nice and clean.
im hoping to have the car complete by march... like i said i hope...
