My car on Octane Magazine

Post by 635sharknose » Sat Aug 14, 2021 12:15 pm

My car is on the website of the Octane Magazine Netherlands.

Surely Bigcoupe was mentioned as well in the article :D.

You have a level of dedication that far exceeds mine. I was lucky to have pickings of low lying fruit to enhance my stash. Those days are gone though. Very nice and well cared for e24 Paul. 👏

Thanks Ralph!
If I had had that chance, I would have done the same. :lol:
You have a technical level far beyond mine, it will take me many years to build up such knowledge, if I ever get it. I am glad that thanks to this forum I can use the knowledge of people just like you. Best forum in the world. =D>

Congratulations Paul, very nice article. I am glad that your long-standing wish has come true.

You have already done a lot of work, a lot is still waiting for you. But in the end, you’ll be the driver with the biggest smile on your face 8)

I've not been on the forum for a while so have only just seen the article.

Great work Paul, and I know just how much skill and effort has gone in to getting the car to look as good as it does right now. Keep the passion flowing!!
