Hell yeah friend. Nothing better than German engineered speed.

I’ve got my eye on a supercharger and cam setup that will have my little convertible keeping up with M3s. :grin: I’ve done several custom turbo setups and now am ready for the more refined power delivery of the supercharger.

Are there lots of BMWs in CR?

Yes people love them here. I installed a K&N air intake and it would sound like a jet at 100MPH+, the police wouldn’t even bothered coming after me… LOL

But that was all before i had kids, now it’s all about them, so i drive a nice SUV to fit everyone in…

I had a 84 Ford ranger pickup with a 2.3 4 banger all of 88 h.p. stock it had trouble pulling a fiberglass sailboat on the highway, I built another 2.3 for it using a 2.5 crankshaft and a roller camshaft I fit a turbo on it and added a 3 stage nitrous system it dynoed at 385 h.p. and 410 ft lbs. Without using the giggle gas a 4.11 Auburn locking differential it woul go 145 mph before the Rev limiter went off at 8500 rpm in fourth gear. That truck had a full sleeper treatment beat up on a whole lot of cars that had bigger motors

I had 80’s BMW E30 for some time but it wasn’t at best shape (and it was lacking self-locking differential :smiling_imp:) so I passed it to another fan…

Who didn’t drive E30 in Europe wouldn’t believe that traffic cops can stop you for “routine check” 5 times per week :fearful: Well some models will be probably associated with dealers and gangsters forever :.

People have those here too. And they fixed them up pretty good, but you are right they look gangsta! LOL

I had an E34 and E43 i think, if memory serves me well, but i gotta tell you, the beetle, that was a bullet!

Nice bike @JaxxMunster. I’m working on getting a 2001 Yamaha tw200 titled and I’ll be knees in the breeze with you :slight_smile:

So, who loves the new Jaguar/ Land Rover creations? Saw some new models last week at a Classic British Car show at a dealer in Colorado Springs.

My wife keeps wondering out loud how much longer she has to keep her Chrysler before she can get a Jag. Lol. Keep dreaming! I’d probably let it go and assist if she wanted a Rover.

When is it? remind me brother @MadScientist.
Need to know how long I have to save… financing many auto projects right now and saving for the 325i hot rod parts so it would take some sacrificing.

I would love to see more companies in the heavy equipment end of automobile industry competing with tesla. This is a nice step.

Now if only CAT and Detroit Diesel would follow suit…
