    They stopped, ofc called the cops...dickheads. Ofc I got a ticket for reckless driving and had to do the whole court thing. Fuck those guys.

    I did. I went around a turn around 50ish and there was another car coming the opposite direction....not on their side. I managed to catch the passenger front in the ditch and it dragged me in....sliding along I thought okay, it'll be fine....but there is a huge rock sticking out that I hit and it ramped the car over onto it's roof. I just had a small scuff on my arm from the airbag. Mostly I'm hurt coz I loved that damn car, lol.

    Well well well....I guess here I am again.

    So we've had many life events recently.

    I flipped a car.
    I had a son.
    I did a good bit to the Hammer in the meantime....well....before those first two.

    For Vintage '19 I redid the interior. Huge thanks to 9Stitch for the custom interior. I did the black suede headliner and swapped the carpet and everything to black that I could. Painted or dyed the rest. It turned out pretty damn well, except the headliner I'm not too proud of....going to have it professionally done when I get around to it.

    I also lost the rear 3/4 of the hood....now it's not just some crummy looking, old, loud BMW anymore....people can see what makes the noises.

    BUT the real highlight here is I took my FBO 335i and made it into a N54 donor car.

    I heard the owner of this car sold it to Carmax for $800.

    Yes - sounds like BS. Getting a Z-Axle under there, and the 4-wheel steering working would be no mean feat!

    The body swap thing is bullshit. The owner doesn't really know anything about how the swap was done.

    wait....I thought this was you for a sec!... But it looks dark green not blue.

    Sounds like there's more of a body swap thing going on.

    Shot off the oil to Blackstone....idk why they called it a M50....whatever. I'll get my follow before Vintage 2019.....I just change it once a year since I never drive it.

    Those dates tho...christ I never get on here anymore.

    I already have that on the Hammer's older sibling, turbos are the way to go on the Hammer.

    Nothing that pierces the hood.

    MooseheadM5 has a centrifugal one on where the AC compressor would be mounted on the M70.....but his is in an e28. I wanna keep my AC, so the turbo thing appeals to me, plus it's been done before and I can replicate it.

    Just two little guys....engine only revvs out to around 6k, so don't need anything huge. I just want that "oh a v12 touring huh?"..."OHHHH issa twin turbo v12 touring!"
