The sum of CAtuned’s E30′s parts create a car that is the epitome of quality work and time well spent. In contrast to the status quo of the rapidly expanding automotive world, it’s phenomenal to see a build which addresses literally every aspect of what makes a car unique, special, and most of all, complete. In celebration of such a car, we’re excited to share it as our latest desktop wallpaper.

It’s undeniable that Porsche’s 964 is 2014′s go-to car. We’ve seen several jaw-dropping examples here on the pages of StanceWorks alone, and we’ve only scratched the surface – the 964 has found itself as the chassis of choice for many of the year’s best looking builds, all emphasizing a return to cleanliness, modesty, and continuity.

A fear that every car enthusiast has looming in the back of their skulls is the chance that our beloved vehicles could be stolen; vehicles that have emptied our bank accounts, split our knuckles, and wicked our sweat as we wrenched away. Among those unfortunate enough to be victims of car theft, some decide to never return to the car scene.
Over the past few years, I’ve had the opportunity to see a number of spectacular cars in person – cars I’ve seen in books as a kid, or in photo archives on the web, but never expected to see in person. Rarities, one-offs, concepts, and coach built cars are much of what make Concours shows so special; they often represent a once-in-a-lifetime chance to see some of automotive history’s most unique, impressive, or sometimes gaudy cars, ever.
After a tour through Italy in an E28, a stock, red one no less, I found my inner “old man” starting to show. For the first time in my life, I’ve had the passing though of “now I can understand how these old men prefer their cars stock. It doesn’t need to be changed.” Luckily, it’s a fleeting thought, and I am constantly reminded that there is something truly special about modified cars and their inherent sense of self-expression.
