    Definitely some pipe dreams of creating something along the lines of Eric Long's old Ring Toy build from my clapped out 4-dr shell. He had a thread mirrored here on r3v or e30tech, but here's the only one I could find:
    https://www.bimmerforums.com/forum/s...3-E30-ring-toy
    Sub the engine for a K-series or turbo 24v, probably no 5lug and some cheaper wheels, but aesthetically like this.

    Also have a lot of things from Sh3rpak!ng 's car that I would like to do to my e30 but lack the balls to do to my first e30.

    NA LS/6sp E39 touring as a highway car or daily, had a big spreadsheet of everything I would want for this from wheels/brakes/suspension/interior/driveline stuff.
    Probably will just buy a newer wagon of some sort instead because at the end of the day I can't manage any more projects.

    Myself and two of the guys from my former FSAE team have joked(?) about making an unrestricted FSAE car (while skipping/relaxing some of the restrictive frame and template rules, aero limitations, etc.). Even an unrestricted 600 would make more than enough power, and we have a few of those already (though they're in dubious condition from a dry sump that seems to be extremely unhelpful with oiling)

    Slow monday... random, not-really-nonsense-though-I-guess-it-is question:

    What are some crazy pipe-dream project car ideas you guys have?

    Me? Obviously I have a lot, but theres a few engines Ive wanted to swap into something. Lately theres a few BEC (Bike-Engine Car) ideas with various motorcycle engines, a VR6 (miss that noise) but the one at the top of my list is to have some fun with a M70/73 engine. I really want some V12 noises and have found some cool parts to make my wild ideas a "reality"

    I started my new job in August and it has been mind-numbingly boring getting everything up to speed and ready for actual work. Hoping by October I will get to a better level of hands on workload.

    I hear you on that. Had that moment a few times but never scratched the itch too hard until I was completely fed up and quit to go back for my undergrad.

    I just started my new post-school career in June and I'm finally happy that I went back and feel like it was worth it. I spent most of the degree doing the math and thinking it was a terrible idea.

    Same.

    Contemplating a potential job change. Supposedly going to be really busy, but is more aligned with what I enjoy doing and a better trajectory long-term. I work in the Financial world as a Compliance Analyst and would be heading back to the servicing side with a different company. Lots of Pros & Cons. Not 100% sure on it, so naturally Im having some anxiety around it, and they havent even offered me a job yet

    All the downtime between clicks, just allows you to multitask. So it's really for our efficiency.
