        Hey doods, I'm still alive, Been Busy AF with work, and life in general.

        I'm heading back to the Motherland to see my daughter. I'm stoked about that.
        I still have the Dumpster fire, had to miss the picnic this year, because I was in Germany, seeing my daughter.
        My Daughter and her mother have at least 2 if not 3 more years in Germany, It's really tempting to try to find a Touring to bring back. Of course if I do that, I'm packing that bitch with Euro parts to bring back with me! lol

        I sold the 750iL I had, It just had too much rust, and I couldn't justify the cost of rebuilding the V12 to use in my other project, Speaking of that...
        My new project is a 1936/37 Chevy Dump truck that was my great grandfathers. I'm building a hot rod out of it. Work is slow, but I'm getting things done. Where this ties into BMW? Well, I'm back and forth on a few different drive trains. As I mentioned, I was planning on rebuilding the V12 (M70B50), and converting it to run on multiple carbs. But the cost of the rebuilding the 300K mile'd motor was just too expensive. So I've been looking at maybe doing a M60B40, Since I have experience with that motor in the dumpster fire. The Challenge with that one will be trying to find a good, low milage M60B40, that was well maintained. I'm also looking at just doing a SBC, or a LS, I have not decided yet. I see what I want to do in my head, I just have to make it happen.

        Another hobby has presented it's self to me recently. I have started collecting and repairing classic arcade machines. So far I've got 9 machine, Ms. Pacman, Frogger, Gyruss, OutRun, Nintendo DualSystem (with Vs. Excitebike and Vs. SMB), Arkinoid, Pole Position, and another cabinet that is running emulation. Pretty fun having all these old games that I remember playing when I was a kid. Anyone that is interested, their is a show every year, called Northwest Pinball and Arcade Show that happens in Tacoma. I usually have my machines there, along with another 400+ Arcade and pinball machines. This year it's June 5th - 7th at the Tacoma Convention Center. If you're into old games, it's worth checking out. http://www.nwpinballshow.com/

              I'm not gonna sell mine for a while, But I do see them come up for sale. The next time I find one, I'll PM you. Most of them require some work to get them going again.

                            Hey does anyone know of any cheap, quick, and good machine shops in the Tacoma area? I might be asking a lot I know, but i dropped an m20 off at my usual place before thanksgiving and the guy still cant give me an eta for when its supposed to be done. I asked for the head / block to be hot tanked, the block to be honed / decked, and the crank to be machined. I brought it to him disassembled and told him not to reassemble. Maybe im asking too much.

                              My shop I use isn’t close. But never waited more then 1-2 weeks for anything, fly wheels same day , head work , week, block work 2 weeks

                              you’re not asking to much

                                Highlands East in Renton is my go-to machine shop. They're very familiar with m20's.
