Turbo Executive

I have been lurking around PKG for the last few years since I moved back out to Colorado and have been anxiously awaiting the completion of my most recent project. Some of you might remember seeing this car running around IA a few years ago…in rough shape. But I bring you my 1984 e23 745i.

only missing some bits of trim

I have been working my tail off, but finally have gotten it to a respectable state…Hopefully the pictures will do it justice

So my brothers and I have been helping to organize probably one of the largest BMW drives in the 4 Corners area and my goal was to have this finished by the start of the drive…many long nights and down to the wire but got it finished!
