Thanks. Yes it was nice, was my first BMW...thought I was Jack The Biscuit driving around in that when I was 24

I did see it about a couple of times in 98 not long after I'd sold it.
I suspect it was written off & or scrapped, it definitely hasn't been on the road for a long time as the check mot UK site only lists model & date first regestered, same as my old M5 & I know that was on a sworn last time I checked back in 2012 & now also only has model & date 1st regisrered.

I like my little clownshoe. Almost 200k miles!

Not exactly showroom quality but I think it shows nicely.

I stripped the car totally — this is the picture after we loaded it to take to the body shop for rust work and paint. I’d like to get it back in the spring. Not sure yet whether to keep the M10 with just a cam and dual webbers, turbocharge it with fuel injection and a standalone ECU, or swap in another motor like a BMW M42/44 or Honda K24. The M20 is also popular but an inline 6 is a long motor and that is a small engine bay. I am must familiar with the M50/52/S50/52 and there are aluminum block versions of the M52, but that is another long motor.

Gave the old girl a little facelift with a reupholstered wheel in Napa leather. The new M stitching really pops compared to the 24 year old original wheel. Amazing what a new steering wheel does, makes the car feel new.

Are you working with VSR or SCR in CT on hard to find 02 parts? Is the barn behind the house? I remember you fixed it up.

Matt at SCR is super. Unsurpassed body skills..

Luckily between BMW Classic and the robust aftermarket and resale parts network >90% of 02 parts are still available.. and if you’re an 02er, bmw2002faq.com is the resource and place to be…

Agreed, only wished BMW Classic would support their other classic the E30 the same way.

Feel the same way about the e28.

I wish BMW did what Porsche does, in offering parts and upgrades for older models.

Even Honda does this with the s2000, albeit that was a later MY production run.

I liked that house and barn but never really fixed up the barn the way I would have liked. That was 3 houses ago …. Pictures of #2 and #3 garages after being fixed up are below. I filled in the basement and poured a slab for #2 so I could have a 2 post lift, but the current garage is an 1880 carriage house, 24x30 with wood floor and pool equipment in the basement so I have a 4 post now.
