Deciding upon an engine for my car, Rusty, was far from a simple task. I’d like to suggest that all along, I knew exactly what I wanted, but that couldn’t be further from the truth. In fact, several engines came to the shop, and then left on truck beds… An S62, an M106, and I even came close to pulling the trigger on an S85 V10 before I finally settled on what I felt was most true to form: the truly unique, and truly “BMW” S38 inline-six.
To celebrate the completion and revival of our project E28, “Rusty,” we launched the most recent art print from the Lowly Gentlemen. Andrew Ritter paired his talent with paper once again, this time depicting Rusty from the inside out, celebrating everything that comprises its latest form. A handful remain from our unveiling last year, waiting for homes on shop and office walls, and what better time than now than to bring the beautiful prints in to the spotlight.
For two weeks, the city of Essen, Germany becomes the focus of the automotive world. More than 350,000 people gather to attend the Essen Motor Show, which trails only behind SEMA as the second largest auto show in the world. Focused specifically on the aftermarket, it is inarguably the premiere event for tuners in all of Europe.
Rusty Slammington – Today at SEMA, one day before the show begins, Mike Burroughs revealed his famed creation. After four years behind closed doors and two years under the knife, we’ve pulled the cover back on Rusty Slammington. From the tube chassis and the and custom H&R suspension, to the race-prepped S38 and the center-lock BBS E52s, little remains from the E28’s past iteration; however, Rusty’s heart and soul remains. Today, a legend has returned.
Dont Miss: Part I and Part II
Andrew Sylvia and I had conquered every challenge the deserts of the south west had thrown at us. Even with our photos of the trip, it’s hard to know how many times we had truly broken down, or how many hours we had spent on the side of the road. Nic and Steph Foster had helped us get back on our feet, and our final leg to reaching a west-coast city was mostly trouble free.
