As visitors of Jalopnik, you’re likely acquainted with the strategy of Project Car or truck Hell. It is that special put you conclude up in when you purchase a awesome but cataclysmically unreliable vehicle that usually takes all your time and strength and, of system, money to check out and make useful.
Of program, there’s Job Car Hell, and then there’s buying a suspiciously low cost E65 BMW Alpina B7 from one more continent which is a whole other issue that I really do not think they have a title for still. This is in which YouTuber Sreten from the utterly excellent M539 Restorations channel discovered himself just lately, but unlike the relaxation of us, Sreten has the time, expertise, and utter deficiency of a perception of fiscal self-preservation to have viewed the venture via.
The “Project Chicago” collection of movies (which is almost completed) has viewed some of the most significant peaks and valleys of any undertaking car or truck I have at any time listened to of, with various motor rebuilds in the span of months, but seeing the large, black Alpina relocating below its own energy has supplied me a new degree of appreciation for the most hated 7-sequence.
So, block out 12-moreover hrs to look at the entire collection, prepare for some dad jokes and get pleasure from more automotive schadenfreude than you can shake some BMW rod bearings at.
