Rare parts. At times, they can compliment a build to a point of completion, if not define the build entirely. Classic cars are built with classic parts, and it’s the oddities and rarities of an era that help to create and shape a vision. In the world of E30s, it’s the likes of M-Tech body kits, Alpina splits, and all of the Alpina trimmings, that help to set Jay and Claire’s E30 apart from the rest.
H2Oi 2013 was filled with truly impressive cars, as it is every year – but no matter how many Volkswagens, Audis, Porsches, and BMWs you gather in one place, nothing will define “cool” quite like Jason Sellers’s 1964 Lincoln Continental Convertible.

The BMW E85, or Z4 as it’s more commonly known, is one of the forgotten BMW chassis.

I can fully appreciate the position, but when you run across someone who is willing to take a chance that few would consider, it’s always intriguing to see the outcome.
