Default kdm212's official build!

anyone whos anyone around here knows i go thru cars like water. well, it is time...i have had this car for a week and its time to introduce her. (soon to be named)

1997 3.8 m5 hardtop. non power windows or locks. nothing special so to speak. however, she needs love. when i got her she was immobile (destroyed piston in block) and needed to be towed home. currently she is in the garage over the pit with the tranny out and the engine somewhat disassembled.

as some of you may or may not know david becker has recently moved to florida so he is going to be helping me in this undertaking.

so far we have collected a new (90k) motor, clutch, all new plugs, wires, cat, gaskets...

the plan is to make it to g19. in the new ride...

i gotta say i really feel committed to this more than any other f-body.

pics to follow!
