While the popularity of classic BMWs continues to grow, there are undoubtedly a few chassis that have been all but forgotten. The E21 is an obvious example, having fallen into the shadow of its successor, the E30. The E23 7-series is another; while there are quite a few wonderful examples out there, its popularity is hardly measurable.
Unfortunately, with a majority of vintage cars lacking their window glass and a rising chance of rain in tomorrow’s forecast, we’ve decided to push the event back to March 10th from 11AM to 2PM.
For a car so stunning and elegant, I have few words. Perched upon the green of the 2017 Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance, the ’67 Ferrari 412 P Competizone was simply unparalleled. I’ve crossed paths with many cars at this point, many on the green and more on the tarmac. Some I love, some I loathe, and of course, best of all, I have my personal favorites. No car, though, has captured my adoration in such a way as the 412 P.
It’s tax season…and that comes right before show season. For the month of March, Air Lift Performance dealers will be offering up to 20% off all products. This includes all complete performance air suspension kits and control systems such as Air Lift Performance 3H (height + pressure) and 3P (pressure only). If you didn’t take advantage Air Lift Performances’ Black Friday / Cyber Monday deal, now is a great time to start your #lifeonair.
In no way is Dirk Deppen’s approach to building cars subtle. The idea of a “sleeper” is lost on him; the importance of aesthetics and the cohesion between style and performance are paramount in his list of build plans. Just one glance at his main project, an E30, gives it all away: a turbo 5.3 LS, enormous fenders, wild wheels, and everything in between make for a wonderfully ostentatious machine. His E28 on the other hand, is admittedly a bit more nuanced.
