    Story behind the car:
    In September 2008 when I decided to buy e30 Convertible.
    This is the second e30 to me, I found the neighboring village to this technically OK Cabriolet, and then I sold my old 2-door sedan.

    I thought that this does not have to do anything, maybe wheels, polishing and a couple of the original parts, yeah right.
    the first winter I found myself in the garage replacing an old m20 engine.
    replaced by m50b25 which was runs almost two summers.

    At the beginning of July 2011 my wife was forced to collide with this, it didn't bother driving, but a month later I found the engine to be the former. 5 cylinder was bearings had worn out

    This started 3 years, and 4 different car painter pain full project.
    at that time I assembly M-tech bodykit and changed the engine m52b28 so that the car was able to drive.

    2012 when the car was on the second painter, I waiting to fresh paint, it was really close to buying the euro s50b30. seller had some issues to take it out, so when im waiting he i accidentally came across in the port and found there E34 535, which was chanced in S38 engine, it was two days at christmas eve when i call to owner and
    about 2 hours later It was in my yard.

    For s38 i made the necessary changes to the workshop and cleaned up engine bay
    i take the engine to own garage, paint and plated parts finish

    in the winter 2013-2014. Finally, Erkki (painting / photoshoot) took the car at their shop , he painted car in pieces, he did a fantastic job.
    at least i got the easiest part to put all parts together.

                    Amazing, love that color combination. I wish s38s were not just unicorn parts around here.

                          That interior is insane. And the color. And those wheels. And the engine. COTM worthy for sure!

                            Im glad (and not at all surprised by)the love this car is getting and so far all of the COTM's are well earned. Obviously its my opinion since Im the one picking them, but I chose cars that their owners have poured a ton of work into, made them into the E30s THEY love and Im just displaying them to the world. Some will be more modified than others but they will all be a pleasure to their owners and they all could simply go on and on about the cars. Congrats again Toni
