BMWotD – 1995 M540i

The ’95 ///M Sport 540i market just continues to improve, at least for the fortunate few who own one and decide to sell. I’ve written about a couple other similar cars here before; they were pretty nice cars too, and the asking price on this one is just that much higher. This is one of […]

Roadkill – Stubby Bob Does Wheelstands!

( Cars! )

This is all kinds of awesome. I don’t watch the Roadkill guys often, but this one is definitely worth the time. They take a ratty old Ford truck and do terrible things with it. Terribly cool. I’d love to have the time, space, & resources to do the kind of stuff they do, but it’s […]

Another Truck I Like

( Cars! andFun! )

Today’s new trucks lack character. Too much plastic, and too many curvy lines. Trucks from the ’60’s however… They exude “cool”. Like this one, a 1966 Chevy 1-Ton Six-Pack long box. I’ve always liked the styling of the first-generation Chevy C/K trucks, but the not so much the six-pack or four-door variants; they always seemed […]

BMWotD – 1995 e34 5 series V12 6spd Conversion

Here’s a unique car that is up for sale in the Burlington, KY, area. The owner/seller could just as well call it a 550i; it’s a 5-series with a 5-liter V12 engine under the hood.

BMWotD — Damn Swedes

No, that doesn’t look much like a BMW. In fact, it’s a Volvo. Or at least it started out that way when it was new in the 1960’s, but now… That’s a BMW 4.0L M6x V8, with a little tweaking and forced induction (via a pair of turbochargers) that makes it good for about 750HP. […]

I’ll Have A Unimog, Please.

( Cars! )

What’s not to like? Part truck, part car, part tractor… The Mercedes Benz Unimog has to be the world’s coolest vehicle, hands down. 4WD, ground clearance that will spare a good sized deer, 4 doors, roomy interior (ingress & egress can be a little difficult, but I digress.), power take off, balloon tires, etc, etc… […]

The Best Paper Gasket Remover

( Cars! )

I tackled the job of replacing the leaky oil filter housing gasket on Emily’s e36 318ti this weekend, and as was expected, ran into a few snags along the way. It’s a fairly involved job, but not terribly difficult, with a couple of exceptions. Removing & replacing the stupid serpentine belt was one struggle that […]

BMWotD — ’95 540i M-Sport In The Best Color

The e34 M-Sport 540i pushes a lot of the right buttons for me (I’ve drooled over them before) but this one is extra special, and the reason can be summed up in one word; Hellrot. Red cars just make me jiggy. The ’91 Dinan 535i Turbo that caught my eye a while back was nice, […]

Bushy-Tailed Tree Rats

( Cars! andThe House )

We only have a single-car garage, which typically doesn’t have room for even a single car, so parking a car or three on the street is pretty much normal at our house. Just down the street from our property there is a walnut tree between the curb and the sidewalk, not far from where the […]

BMWotD — e36 Compact with M50 Six

It’s been a while since I last posted a BMWotD, and I’ve got a few of them stashed away on my local drive, so time to play some catch-up. This one was listed for sale on the Minneapolis CraigsList earlier this month, and had (un)fortunately sold before I saw mention of it on the 318ti.org […]
