Description
Purchased from original owner in 2002 with 174,000 miles on the car.

I've spent 4+ years collecting parts for this car, missing Shootouts, and going hungry though college. Finally, Spring 2009 I finished the engine rebuild, procured a lower-mileage M5R2, and installed everything with the modifications I had amassed over the years. In Oct 2009 (up until the very night of the Shootout!), I was able to get everything to a point where I could make the trip, race the car, and make it back home in one piece. Since then, it's been garaged for the first time since I've owned it.

The near future holds: body resto-modification, paint, interior clean-up / customization, tuning, and maybe a few more things along the way.
