After club racing his S54 poweredÂ 1979 e12 BMW for years, BrendanÂ decided he’d like to try something a bit different. So with that in mind, he picked himself up an E9 to build into his vision of a resto-modded club racer. For powering duties, he chose aÂ s38b36 straight-6 out of an E34 M5, and added other goodies such as a full roll cage, side-exit exhaust tunnel, steering rack conversion, and a bunch of hand made suspension components. The car is transformed from a clapped out bare shell (and I mean BARE!) to a smooth green retro track toy, something that I think any one of us wouldn’t mind punting around a race track.
