What's in YOUR garage?

Recommended Posts


Beautiful work Mally. I absolutely love the Porsche and the color. Is the dash all original and do you plan to do any restoration work on it? If not I fully understand as I kinda like the patina it has.

Thanks guys,

The dash right now has the wonderful dash cap over the cracked original.

This winter the whole thing comes out and the gauges and full dash will be restored. I like the patina as well but it will look much better when done. I wanted to enjoy the fall driving weather so the dash and gauges will have to wait a few months.

I got an old friend back to finish and market. Putting in an interior and finishing up loose ends. Haven't even had time to take for a spin-but I will soon:)

Gorgeous car, Mally.

Lots of subtle mods to the V70R since the last time I posted :) My favorite is the custom headlights I built.

mally,

I am truly at a loss for words. I have never seen such a collection of perfection in one place. You have my dream garage. An early air cooled Porsche and a 240z. Wow, you must be so proud. Such a wonderful problem you must have to decide what you want to drive! :)

Thanks Z_k,

It has been a beautiful weekend (except for FL beating TN....argggg) so both got to see some curves.

After seeing them both I think if the Z doesn't sell I'll drive her for another season or two and then try again. I was wanting to sell the Z to start on another project, but I think I'll take this winter off........this getting older crap is starting to wear on me.

Looking forward to your post in the next 55+ days on the TEXAS 1,000.........would love to do that one day.

PS.......Here's the Porsche before the restoration began. The PO painted it Red back in the 80's but I had to return the original color of Ossi Blue.

Interesting name for a color. In Italian "ossi" means "bones." I would have thought that name would have been used for some shade of white or beige.....

well my dd is an e36m3, 4 door 5 sp with a few mods. I would like to get back to my e30 roots and get an e30m3 but it's tough: I don't mind dd'ing the e36, it's ok when it gets a little abuse, dings, etc. A couple weeks ago someone hit the front and took off, ~$1600 in damage! But I would feel pretty uncomfortable using an e30m3 for anything where it's left unattended, too rare. Some day I hope to get an e30m3 shell and put an s54 in

My garage has lot, LOL. 16,000 square feet. My business specializes in the sales of alternative energy vehicles, so a bunch of Priuses and Civic Hybrids, a few CNG powered cars when we can find them. But my warehouse was a BMW part out facility prior to us, and my landlord still has a lot of junk in there.

the e30 touring is no longer mine. Sold it to a guy in NYC who did an e30m3 widebody and painted it blue. Loved that car though, had a European s50b30 and e36m3/z3 m 5lug brakes/suspension. the black e30 in the foreground is my buddy's, US 3.0L m3 motor in there. the e38 is ours as well (sold a while back). the junk BMW's are my landlord's

the white e30 in the pics is a build we did to sell, obd1 s52 (3.2L e36 m3 motor) into an e30 318i.

had an old mk1 gti car with a ton of scca history. sold it to a buddy of mine who's just swapping a 1.8t in for now

(came with a small fortune of Happich windows for anyone familiar. I sold the windows for more than I got for the car)!

here's my "new" 73 Z that needs some time and money. I'll be contacting Charlie Osborne for some new floors some time soon, Arizona car but still some holes.

and a last shot of my old touring with my dad's '71

Is this some kind of foreign language? LOL Well at least he seems to have a Z now - LOL

LOL at Carl :) E36 M3 is the mid 90's version. E30 was the mid-late 80's 3 series. S54 is the OBDII M3 engine with ITB's.

Oddly enough one of the interested parties for my BMW is also an S30 owner and Nationals 2nd place trophy winner who also knows my dad (Diseazd). Small world.

Sold my turbo BMW E34. Bought this. 99 528it "individual" car meaning custom ordered in this Mojave metallic brown color and is the only one in the country. I already have my autokraft oil pan, custom engine/trans mounts as well as custom ceramic coated headers. H&R rear springs with Bilstein sports and up front, Fortune Auto coilovers which I am picking up today.

The engine has been ordered and is a brand new crate GM performance iron block LSX 427 stroker motor. 550hp/580 ft lbs of torque. The motor comes with CTSV accessories and LS7 heads/intake manifold. Also ordered 2013 Camaro TR6060 6 speed transmission and clutch kit.

Going to be a beast of a wagon!

Beautiful car spitz.....too bad they don't make it in pure white.....that metallic white is impossible to match for chips etc. My wife's Lexus is that same paint. I understand a turbo is in the works for next year.
