A buddy of mine texted me last night about this car. He asked if it was the same coupe that won Legends when we where there in 2016 (OCCoupe's old car). I had to laugh and replied that is not anywhere close to level of Mike's old coupe.
I suppose imitation is the best form of flattery. @OCCoupe’s build is/was arguably the most well appointed e9 in the history of custom restorations. This car not so much.
I don’t think it is a coincidence that he was confused. The paint and leather combination does not seem like a coincidence. The leather wrapped dash. The same stereo with BMW knobs. The custom punched speaker holes on the rear deck. The unprecedented (by RonP standards) attention to detail in the engine bay.
It’s a sharp looking car and someone will surely enjoy it. There are many things that I would prefer to see “corrected” however.
