I’m a lucky man. I’m lucky to have a great little family (Junior’s 6 months as of yesterday!) and the opportunities to play the way I do. But most of all, I’m lucky this car’s in the opposite corner of the country. If it weren’t I’d be picking it up on my way home from work. Rarely does an opportunity denied constitute luck, but given the e9-chassis BMW CS’ tendency to rust to oblivion, generating bodywork bills that’ll require a second mortgage, I’m happy to be kept away. This one puts our previous siren e9 champ to shame. The hopeless-project-a-phile in me wants to just strip it down to a (pre lightened!) vintage road racer powered by some manner of modern EFI M30 motor or maybe an LSX just to horrify the purists. Take a guess at the current bid, and hit the jump to find out just how wrong you are.
Of course, with 3 days left and a current (reserve met!) bid of $200, there’s at least one fast-track to racing that’s within reach. The listing claims it’s got a manual transmission, but the seller gives us no further information other than “very rough”. Also, don’t email.
