Oddly enough I deal exclusively with cars that have a known airplane heritage- Saab and BMW
I currently have a classic 1983 BMW 533i, 5-speed with the classic Bimmer 3.2 straight-6, 6500 RPM redline, tons of torque out if it!
Sadly my 1991 Saab 900 Turbo has a major engine issue, so it has to go, and I dont have an engine nor the space to do a swap, so today I just looked at and tomorrow I'm picking up a
1990 Saab 9000S, 2.3L non-turbo, again a 5-speed. If I cant sell the 900 Turbo as is, I may mothball it for a bit, then take the turbo and turbo out the 9k.
Past cars have included:
1987 Saab 900S
1987 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme coupe, Chevy 350 4 barrel V8, trust me that thing moved!
1985 Volvo 740 GLE
All my cars have exceptionally high mileage, My 900 Turbo had over 180k based on a rough estimate, over 155k on my BMW, and over 177k on my Volvo
I'm also into some motorsports, but I love Italian cars, like Ferrari, Fiat, Alfa Romeo and Lancia.
