About “"the black piece of...." -my wife”

my 3rd BMW, and one of the most fun and rewarding cars I've ever owned when it was working right...

pulled a tach-verified 132mph "somewhere in western nebraska" in October of 2005.

About “Volvo”

419,000 KM and counting! I bought this car for $70 and it had a bunch of melted wiring. I spent a couple of weeks piecing it all back together and re-wiring it all up and then drove it for a year.

It was never very exciting, but Volvo turbos with manual transmissions are VERY rare, and it served me quite well! These old Turbo Bricks are legendary for their longevity and this one was no exception.

I sold it to my little brother in the summer of '06 when I got the BMW Touring running.
