A few years ago i drew up a list of cars i wanted to own someday. of course this list is a dream unlikely to become true (i mean lets be real it has a 300sl gullwing and a 288 gto 😎). aim high as they say 😅.
the list consisted of car pictures and amongst them was an e9 that the i have come across on the internet. it was a build by h&r springs christian heines (@hrspringslp
or @hr_spezialfedern). a sexy black e9 as sharp as a razor blade. there was a whole article devoted to this car by @stanceworks.
(link in bio). @mike_stanceworks
said in his article “my jaw hung in bewilderment, as it was perhaps the one of the most enjoyable cars i've seen all year.” believe me when i say this gentleman sees a fair share of stunning vehicles on a yearly basis which makes that sentence the most coveted accolade to any car builder. .
i am sure everyone saw at least one bmw they loved. a car maker that continued to make great cars (except the first run of chris bangle, those were awful 🤢). amongst bmw enthusiasts the e9 is regarded as one of the most beautiful car ever to exit the german auto maker’s doors. (actually this one was built by the now defunct karmann motors). . .
this year i bought mine. i have been looking for her for 10 months. as gorgeous as she may be, at least i think so 😬, there is a lot of work to be done to get her back to her former glory. she was a loved vehicle, 68k miles with 3 owners from new including myself. .
i was lucky to drive many cars in my life but non bewitched me like this one. i fell in love with this car 5 minutes after i drove it away from @munichlegends.
this is the automobile’s rendition of love at first sight 💘. .
i am still not sure if i would keep the colour and retain its current look/feel or go for what i planned already which is a replica of the h&r build. (see the link to understand why this is such a predicament 😖). .
i would like to know your thoughts. .
special thanks to @bengt.kolnes
for the inspiration.
