It was nearly two years ago that sheer chance lead me to a secluded shop in Southern California. Behind unsuspecting doors sat an assortment of classic BMWs, unparalleled by any collection I had seen before. Dozens of cars, ranging from classic touring sedans to vintage race coupes, sat fender-to-fender, and any empty space between them was sure to be occupied by an equally impressive parts collection.

It was by the water cooler at work that I first heard about this particular car. The conversation went something like this:
“You like classic BMW’s, don’t you Blake?”
“Yeah, love ‘em. Why?”
“There’s a guy who runs a workshop with a really neat 2002 race car. I think it’s got a turbo Formula 2 engine in it.
