BMWotD — 1991 Dinan 535i

It’s been a while since I last posted a BMW of the Day, and I’d have to say that this one is notable enough to post. It’s a 1991 e34 535i that was modded by Dinan by the original owner. This thing is a hot rod, no doubt. Dinan added an intercooled turbo to the […]

Ten Thousand Visitors!

How cool is this; when I wasn’t even watching, visitor number 10,000 came knocking at my site yesterday afternoon!

Sweet! Not sure what to think of the bits about having to “chip harder when it comes to breaking out […]

How Low Can You Go?

( Cars! andFun! )

Here’s a car that Caleb & I saw at last September’s Oukasts’ Car Club show in Mitchell. The thing is so low it’d probably be grinding just rolling down the street. When the owner started it up & drove off, hydraulics raised it up a bit to make it at least drivable, but it was […]
