Only 30mph average speed, or does the low ground clearance force those sort of speeds :D

Just a sneak peak. It's got a 305 chevy smallblock placed in a super clean shaved engine bay with those rare vette wheels. The owner has got about 4 other e36's as well, 3 of which are projects at the moment. :-)

Yall are pretty tough group to please....smh

Now I know why I don't post much anymore haha yall are tough to please and too critical. Look at the picture and say okay, is this good or is this not good? Not "oh you wasted gas" or "this thing is stupid, it's too low and can only do x". This is an aesthetic critique is it not?

Ok, first about the photo ...
I would either have cropped or cloned out the little part of the roof on the left of the shot, either you get the entire hangar in view or you close away the corner ... both would make a much more balanced shot.
Also the dent in the panel on the hanger on the right ... same story, clone it way or crop closer ... I like photos that show some background, but I'm a car nut, so having the car 'larger' in the crop would be my take on it, but that's personal taste, I know.

About the car itself, I like those 3-Series ... but what I don't get is why put a V8 Chevy engine it it ... if you want to do an engine swap it would have been way more impressive to put an M5 engine in it no ?
As for the wheels, I like those gold painted ones on a white car ... but they look like Borbet wheels to me ... are those special Vette wheels ?

Haha these are all very valid points. I honestly didn't know why he did it, but said the engine was laying around and they wanted to try something different. *shrugs*

He just texted me this morning and said the engine is blown.. so was lucky to get the car in for a shoot!

On the note of the M5 engine, good condition M5 engine + tranny and all the other doodads would run you 4+ which is rediculous considering the M6x(4.4 or 4.8L v8 +/-250 hp) engines can be bought WITH a tranny for about 1-1,500. Albeit the power is not the same, it's 1/4 the struggle you'd have with a M5 engine.


**With the processing, I did however notice that rotten apple on the right behind the car, will be changing it with other little alterations. The roof falling off was a no-no(quick processing for a sneak peak for the client) but with further processing it will be changed :-)

Apparently the title didn't explain much of anything. I am glad you had a paid client bud. HAND:D

Not the most superb car photo i've ever seen, A lot more sheet metal than car in this one. Silver background on white paint, not always the best contrast.

Now I wouldn't use the 305 CSB....but I would use a Chevy LS V8.

A Chevy aluminum LS V8 engine, 6 speed AT out of a salvage GM light truck has the potential for a ton of power (esp. if you slip a turbo on it), relatively light weight (aluminum block and heads), excellent durability, standard and performance parts are readily available and reasonable. The price is also reasonable....comparat​ively speaking.

If snobbery is an issue for not putting a Chevy LS into a BMW...all one has to recall, is that the Corvette LS V8....for a number of years has shown many Euro sports cars the quick way around the track.
