Good to see you guys working on these cars.

Mine has been sitting and waiting for 15 years now.

This is inspiring.

I must start overhauling mine soon. When so. I wll need some help. Looking forward to consult you guys.

Added these 15 - 20 years old photos.
This one has had 4 cyl, 6 cyl and 8 cyl engines.
And been really abused. Story later.

It is 6 cyl at the moment, M30 from 1973, I guess, with two Zenith carbs.
It is actually the engine it should have had in the beginning, and BMW figured out later.

But it had an V8 Ford at one time and did some quarter-mile racing.
When I got it it had this 6 cyl and 4spd manual Getrag box. Worked fine for some years, I partially rebuilt it, and then I met my wife (to be) when driving this car. Wife + four kids + mortgage = no rebuilding.
The wife is the same age as the car so I will take it apart soon I hope and start real rebuilding. Some real work has to be done. I believe I will stick to M30 engine and manual. I actually bought an donor 735i 5spd. manual for it, but drove that car three years and sold it.

More later I hope.

Best from Iceland.
