Deciding upon an engine for my car, Rusty, was far from a simple task. I’d like to suggest that all along, I knew exactly what I wanted, but that couldn’t be further from the truth. In fact, several engines came to the shop, and then left on truck beds… An S62, an M106, and I even came close to pulling the trigger on an S85 V10 before I finally settled on what I felt was most true to form: the truly unique, and truly “BMW” S38 inline-six.
For many of us, cars are as much a part of who we are as the blood that flows through our veins. Over time, that love for cars often culminates with the affinity for one car in particular: our favorite car. Our favorites often fall into one of two categories – classics, or machines built to push the limits of automotive engineering. Sometimes it’s both, and on occasion, it’s neither.
