You know, I have really, really, tried to like the two tone M5.


But I just can't.

Thats exactly the same as mine, just without the rust, and um, with wheels on it
It also appears to have most of the trim stIll attached too.

Cracking shot of Harris in the F40. Yum.

I think it only right to ask what CH was thinking when he left Evo to come here and be abused. If my job involved doing that while not having to interact directly with the public I'd never leave.
Would speculate that Drive vids are what he's really about currently. His contribs to PH, such as they have been, would take all of about an hour a week of his time.

Sadly, being a Porsche man, it looks more and more freakish as the years go by. It's not aged well at all.

The F40 looks better and better with time. yes
To be fair, it's a very unflattering pic of the 959. Try this:



But I'd take the donkey, too!

The pic is deceptive. It certianly does have rust but it's not too bad at the moment.

I do have a garage full or E34 panels, trim and parts ready to restore it but I don't have the cajones or budget to commit to doing it right now. Plus I'm stll short of some bits required to do everything in one go.
It wouldn't suprise me if the final bill comes to somewhere well north of £10k to get it where I want it so I'll wait a while yet and just keep using as I do now.

Should the move overseas happen, I'll put the M5 in storage for when we come back and will attempt to restore it then.

Whatever happens though, it is a keeper. Two-tone and all!
