    I came.
    What. The. Fuck.

    I'd kill for one. There was an oxfordgrun one at 5erWest. It was super, super clean ...but still oxfordgrun on parchment. Meh.

        Well think about it this way. The devil you know is better then the one you don't. Lets say you score a $300 m20. What happens if it ends up needing a new headgasket or something. Basically it would suck and you wouldn't know exactly the down falls of the new engine unless you personally knew the p.o

        If you just source a new head and headgasket you are pretty much done. Well as far as i know. But you can understand what I am saying.

          I agree. Plus, having a freshened up top end w/ new gaskets gives you that warm fuzzy feeling inside ;)

              Really Austin? It's a no-brainer.

                I've considered that possibility also. I have an 885 head that's partially rebuilt, just needs an exhaust valve, surface and a couple rockers and clips, reassembly and it's finished. Just need to finish it up when I get some time. Unfortunately, time is something I have very little of lately!

                Guess we'll see how this plays out in the next few days.

                              If someone gives me $6k for my M50 car right now, I'll go snag it. I wanted an E34 Touring anyway and this is even better-- 5-sp and AWD! Needs a turbo to be perfect!

                                Holy shit I can't believe there is one here in the PNW. That is like a once in a lifetime chance to own one! Wish I had enough cash on hand....
