Principally was a Texas car most of his life. Yeah. Actually spent a couple years here in Tampa (uh) one of the owners that was in Tampa and (uh) I have (uh) brought it down here two years ago and just enjoy having it here. It’s a great car to cruise around in. Wow let’s take a look let’s go under the hood, first what do you think? Tell us a little bit about what we’re looking at here. Well this is the (uh) the world famous motor, the S38 motor that goes into the M5 (uh) individual throttle bodies, makes delicious mechanical noises when you fire it up. Yeah, but this is clean. It’s pretty much all original (um) real pretty much unmolested at this point. Wow this is absolutely the cleanest engine box I’ve seen in a long time, boys and girls you could have breakfast out of this car right here, this is amazing, just an amazing put together car. Let’s take a look at the inside, tell me what we’re looking at here. So for these 88 M5s they all came in the exact same configuration for the most part – black on tan and so this is all original. We had one previous owner about 12 years ago replaced the leather on the front seats but otherwise it’s all original. Wow. Radio etc. Yep, wow boys and girls if this doesn’t take you back and just I had one of these, I drove in this morning, it’s like seeing an old girlfriend.
