Project E28: The Classic Compromise?

Considering this car is 27 years old and I’m dailying it, I’m struggling to see the “running a classic car” compromise:  It’s economical (we’re up to 36.9mpg after a service and plug/ lead change), comfortable, practical, will cruise at 85mph in pin-drop silence and (with no fear of jinxing it) is totally reliable.   I actually nearly sold this thing before I’d even started building it….then I nearly sold it again when I’d finished it…I’m just glad I stuck with it; this is literally the best “old” daily I’ve ever had!  The only problem is now I’m looking at even older BMWs thinking they will be as good; 2002 anyone?  Don’t encourage me…

    Fear not! I daily drove a ’74 BMW 2002 for almost a year when I started college. Even with snow on the ground at 15 degrees fahrenheit it started right up every morning.. Alas, the heater didn’t work and I shivered my way to school.

    Amazing looking E28! Great work on the wheel choice/suspension mods!
    Would be really cool if you could upload some wallpapers of these pics. 🙂
