    By the front fenders it appears to be the Masa R34 kit, which I would love to do but its at least 5g, and you have to replace the radiator frame. But I like the rear over fenders. Anyone know where those are from?

    I will also personally give a high five to the person that imports this.

    That is a glorified motorcycle :)

    "To provide an affordable model, BMW began production of the Isetta micro-car with a front opening door (under licence from Iso) in 1955."

    I was thinking about posting a thread about all the different wagons I have been thinking about buying lately and then this rare beast shows up tonight:

    No :( There was an E46 Alpina B3 at auction too that I would have liked to bid on. I have a mortgage now, so I don't have extra cash to play with. Plus, I need to sell the M5 before I buy anything else. Probably next year before I list it.

    Wow! I haven't seen these for a long time and between these two, it's the second and third I've seen in the past month!

    LOL! If I had money, you'd see more cars at the house :p and at least one of them would have been one of the C5 RS6's Mark has had for the last month or so.

    Work is a bit slow right now, so I have a bit of free time :) Noticed these today...Basically brand new zi-four Aristo

    OMG, hard yes on the RS6's, what a package! If it weren't for the known timing chain issues on these cars, I'd be seriously considering one to replace the E55t. I think I'd want a sedan over the wagon this time around. With other large SUV's in the fleet, the wagon never got used for anything more than a commuter car.

    I hit a deer with the Lexus GX470 on the weekend, I'm really hoping it's not a total loss, but it will be close...

    Ya i also love those RS6's but i dont love the Costs to do any work on them, my buddy in Alberta buys pretty much all them via mark, and stores till they are legal (has been doing that for the past couple years) so i pick them up at the docks for him, as they trickle over. nice to see and drive, but timing chain and other costly issues. i wouldnt want to own one.

    Agreed....I've read up on them A LOT, and everyone says don't buy one...still can't help myself from wanting one though. The nice thing on those two recent examples from Mark is that the suspension has already been changed to coils, so that's one issue dealt with. I had a similar thought process before I bought the E39 M5....it was between the M5 or a JZX100. Every bit of common sense told me to buy a JZX100, but I just really wanted to try an E39 M5.
