    Default I'm back baby! (Again)

    After a long hiatus without an E34, i'm back. Current BMW stable is a '95 540i MSport Auto, '95 540i/6 (parts donor for MSport, and a '96 850Ci. Among other Land/Range Rover products, i'm an automotive masochist. I picked up this MSport rotting in a junkyard back in 2014 without a valid title, and after 7yrs I was finally able to get that sorted out. She's legal, running, and about to undergo an interior and manual swap.

    That cleaned up nice. How does it run? Looks like it sat a while.

    Well, the motor was trashed. That's why it was in a yard, "consumed water in a flood in Houston" according to the previous owner. The interior never got wet, just the engine. It was a V7 when I got it. Replaced with another M60 and it's been running ever since. I've been fighting title issues until recently, it's actually been running for years, I just couldn't drive it anywhere...legally. Now that I have the title sorted, i've thrown more time/parts/money at it and begin the actual restoration. It's been parked in that yard since 2009 until I got it in 2014, where it went into a covered storage (barn lol). Call it a barn find.
