Christian’s E9 was far from run-of-the-mill. Instead, my jaw hung in bewilderment, as it was perhaps the one of the most enjoyable cars I’ve seen all year. Christian Heine’s BMW E9 3.0 CSi goes to show that the H&R family has a knack all facets of the automotive world.
Absolute gorgeous modification of a timelessly beautiful BWM 3.0 CSi. Do check it out.
V3llum posted an interesting back-story about one of the men who changed the Porsche community; Rod Emory. It’s a very interesting read if not solely for the fact it talks about a 356 restomod with a 964 floorpan and 4WD. I mean, how cool is that!?
Believe it or not, there was a time not that long ago when modifying a Porsche for any reason was considered a travesty. Keep in mind that this is at a time when most Porsches, 911s and 356s alike, were worth a fraction of what they are today.

One of the original Silver Machines is featured this week on Jay Leno’s Garage. Dr. Anand Rajani takes Jay through his beloved Porsche 356C, restored by an old friend of Jay’s called John Willhoit.

Classic Driver Magazine just published an interesting article with Peter Iversen, the Carrera King of Denmark about his love for Porsche 356‘s. Well worth a read!
Not sure if it’s because I drove an E30 to get my driver’s exam, but I’ve always had a soft spot for BMW 3-series of the late 80’s and early 90s. Sadly I’ve only driven the 316i but the ultimate dream E30 for has always been the 325i Touring.
I don’t know why, but that stationwagon version always appealed to me most (though the M3 comes e x t r e m e l y close). The only missing from that whole E30 series was a V8 powered version. Because let’s be honest, what car does not get better with a V8? Continue reading “BMW E30 340i Touring”
Turning your hobby into work. That’s the goal, right? But not just any hobby, right? If your hobby revolves around owning, maintaining, restomoding and restoring BMWs from the a few decades ago? Well, especially then!
So, that’s exactly what Chris Willett did. Living in sunny Las Vegas and tinkering all day with E30s and what not? Don’t we all wish we could be him? Continue reading “Las Vegas BMW Restorer, Chris Willitt, Loves His E30s”
