After two months of head scratching, busted knuckles, swearing, and learning a lot about BMW M52 engines, the beast is finally running reliably, detailed, and up for sale. It was certainly a fun side project while things were slow at the shop.
I came across this gem on Craigslist the other day and had to go at least check it out. It was a 1973 Mercedes 280 the the owner only wanted $1200 for. The car was in decent shape for it's age, but since the dead BMW is still in the garage, this one won't be coming home today.
