I have to say that it looks pretty good. It has very nice lines.

Ahh..stuff like this makes me proud to be russian :) We didn't ever produce any good cars, but at least we've got brains to know that BMW rocks :)

Several years ago I've read about a similar car done with an M3 engine. Body was the same, I believe.
Probably the guy was not satisfied with a lowly M3's engine in that HEAVY car, so he got himself a 5 liter... ( I'm just speculating here :) )

I can't speak Polish, but I think the three pics at the bottom of that article are of the car you mention. It says something about a BMW 6 cylinder, and the car is clearly different.

I'd like to find a Zil 117 and bring it over to use as a daily driver. Finding parts might be hard, though.

I don't speak polish either, but probably you're right, that's the one.

And about that dream-car of your's, I don't think you'd need spare parts.
If something brakes, get your hammer out and pummel it until it works again :lmao:
Or, for a bottle of vodka some russian mechanic could MAKE you the needed spare part :)
