It's been awhile; some video, and recent photos of my V8 E36

I often get asked whether or not I have any videos of my e36, so I dug around and collected a few.

My apologies for the awful quality, and subpar content...I'll have some go-pro footage shortly...these are all just crappy iphone videos. Its not very "fast" but it's definitely a lot of fun.


The car is a 95' 318i' with a Carbureted Chevrolet 305 V8 mated to a T5 five speed trans and 3.15 LSD

And some pictures since those videos are nice and blurry....

Bless you, your brother(who helped) and the rest of your family that gave you the time to do this Sir.

Just seeing these brings my ever lasting gratitude.

That trans mount annoys me to no end haha. I need to make that 90 degree angle a 45 so the exhaust doesn't rattle on it.

Exhaust delete = zero rattle.

You're welcome.

That engine compartment finish is better than all the exterior finishes of all three of my BMWs combined. Just stunning.

The bay is looking pretty rough these days I've been somewhat neglecting this thing lately.

It snowed here yesterday, taking this out seemed like a reasonable thing to do.

You must love having no traction

She is a beut. Only thing that i dont like (IMO) is the stretch/stance thing. But I dont really like that on any car. Regardless, that thing is gorgeous...

I can completely understand not liking the stance thing. It's definitely not for everyone.

I enjoy it so that's how you'll find all of my cars, excessively low with flush wheels and stretched tires.

But, I don't expect everyone to agree.

I had some ds1s on it for awhile and it was just disgusting to look at for me.
