I’m blogin’!… well, at least I think I am.  I should have started this long ago, but I didn’t, so this car blog begins towards the end…the end of body and mechanical work, but also near the beginning of the car getting back on the road.

 

This project has been underway for quite a while and gradually came to be what it is now.  At a cursory glance, it’s an ITB megasquited, coilovered, euro bumpered 1974 bmw 2002.

 

The car is currently at Midnight Motorsport here in Seattle where it has been reassembled and is getting megasquirt.  Big ups to Patrick, Andre and Collin!  I am not a “wrench” by any means and this shop has been quite helpful with providing options and advice on aspects of gearhead culture in which I am not particularly well versed.  I echo all positive sentiment expressed by others on this FAQ regarding their experience with Midnight Motorsport.  It’s an ill shop and a different one with different ways to get shit done!

 

A shout out to @stuff.  I came across his blog posts here on the FAQ a while back and got the inspiration for an EFI ITB build.  I discovered Jenvey ITBs by reading his postings.  Thank you my man.  The internet is the ultimate repository of human comprehension and this FAQ assembles double 02 cogitation into a service all can appreciate.  FAQing brilliant!

Haha thanks.  It definitely looks way sexy without the air filter covering up the velocity stacks.
