    I remember a while back during a cars and coffee in Corona Del Mar I came across this crazy coupe. I have never seen it in Southern Cal since. If you notice the bodywork towards the trunk was accentuated in the rear quarter panels to mold into the rear spoiler. I will try and dig up some shots from the rear if I have any. I think it had an M motor, not sure what the license plate is referring to because it wasn't a 4-cyl M10 motor. I'm sure someone here either owns this or knows who this is. Maybe you can shed some light on this resto-mod build. It was definitely unique. I apologize for the picture of a picture.

    And its front appears at 3:24. An e9 Kustom is a bit of an anomaly among all those well-restored coupes.

    Thanks for posting that video. I was so busy getting my car ready to be judged, I don't even remember seeing that car.

    You can hear Stan talking at 3:15 too. Nice view of all the coupes that day. The red coupe in question, different isn't always better and imho this is proof.

    Stan, were you in charge of parking the coupes? So much for spacing them equally and behind the paint spots!

    yeah... partially my fault because that was me catching up with him and keeping him from his duties.

    I think "in charge" elevates me too far.. Part of a team with Wayne and Ohmes.
    The shear number of E9s boggled my mind!

    That car was parked next to me! (the silver one with the rally sticker on the door). I remember looking at it, seems like it's better in the photos than real life. I vaguely remember it being sort of hammered in the interior and the spoiler bodywork was poor too. Never talked to the owner, who is it?

    I drove mine from Miami to add some color. I did not think my coupe was worthy and originally parked in a different area but snuck in later in the day anyway.
