    They're no longer common. When I was rebuilding my S62 in 2019, I looked into it, and there are precious few around. Adam had one, an early 00 motor, with high miles. M5 parts cars are drying up, too. The E39 is no longer an old BMW. It's starting to become a classic.

    I could get flamed, but it’s the truth.
    Just LS it. More power, more reliable, parts are 1/4 the price, and a gazillion of them around.

    They were running on the highway at 4000 rpm, by the time they heard the noise the damage had been done.

    That’ll do it!


    Watched some E39 M5 Auctions on BaT in the last few weeks. Couple examples going for “regular” money again.. market seems to be softening a bit.

    Seeing it in luxury timepieces as well.

    Real estates getting a little funky too, at least out here.

    The gt3 is my roommates father's, his business took off and he was able to afford it. The zr1 and the Carrara belongs to his friends, they work at a shop called GMP in Charlotte. We had a car show at our college that was a charity event for toys for tots. They all came over for it then we went back into some of the mountain roads and had a blast.

    Spent some garage time with my other ride today. Oil change, coolant flush and some electrical troubleshooting on heater blower and horns.

    Niiiiiiiice! Big fan of a mid 60’s GM.

    Coincidentally had mine out yesterday, too.

    What size wheels/tires are you running on the Chevelle? I have a staggered set (16x8/17x9) of Cragar S/S that I’m thinking of swapping out for staggered Rally II reproductions. The Rally’s with a red pin stripe are classic GTO.

    IIRC, I did 225/60 on a 15x7 and 255/60 on 15x8.

    255 isn’t enough tire in the back, truthfully. Car has a 496ci stroker and 5 speed. Have to be careful in it lol.

    Love cragars and red pinstripe tires too.

    Man stuff like that is so cool. Unfortunately looks like I'll never really get my hands on some old American iron. I'd love a 69 charger but man are they expensive. Figured it would be a cool restoration project with my pops. Current goal for a restoration is a datson 240z, he always loved those cars and when he had his I always worked on it as a kid. That was what started it all for me.

    never say never. You might get lucky and stumble on a good deal. I like the 240z myself. Good friend of mine in high school drove one around while I was cruising in my Buick 307/4 barrel and lusting after an e30 M. I should have picked one of those up on the cheap 20 years ago…

    Pulling the bed off of my pickup truck I inherited when my grandfather passed. 1994 f-150 with the 4.9 6 cylinder. Both fuel pumps are bad (its a twin tank truck) and the weight bolted to the back of the cab has come loose and is rattling. Thankfully the truck has minimal rust and none of the bed mounting bolts gave me an issue. Unfortunately it's an 8 foot bed and I can't sling off a longbed by myself so I guess I'm luring some of my buddy's over with beer.

    Crusty and rusty, first time I've ever taken off a bed. Wasn't too bad all the bolts played nice.

    Probably just going to hit it with a can of rust reformer, after power washing all the dirt and mud off its all surface rust. Nothing terribly concerning and no soft spots.
