When Rimal Chand first acquired his cherished E24, its state of disrepair was enough to ward off even the most ambitious project seekers. At least, that’s how it appeared; with missing body panels, a complete lack of paint, and an overall appearance of dilapidation, it took a further look by Rimal to be convinced of its potential.

It was evident from the get-go to the Weidlers that their son wasn’t going to stray far from his old man’s passions.
