OMG. just saw this vid. I remember your car. Still tell all my friends about it and when you introduced her to me on a late night trip to L.A. I can see why you love her!
Great story – great car! “Believe me, I drive it like I stole it….” SUPERB! 🙂
Nice Video as always. I have my BMW and i always maintain it in proper condition whether it is spring or winter. But the other fact is that you have any car BMW or Mercedes you should select the right [url=”http://dreamcarsautorepair.com/bmw-auto-parts”]BMW Care center[/url] where all the mechanics are professional and know proper work.
where did he get the steering wheel rewrap？very beautiful
Yup, Ramona and around Aguanga, iirc. That white rail fence sure looks familiar I used to live in Alpine and ran all those back roads both on motorcycles and in my ’85 GTI, ’91 Corvette, and my currently owned ’93 M5 which I bought back in 1/1995. The S38 – simply intoxicating and even more so when taken out to just under 4 liters!
Not to be a negative nelly on this story but I own the first e28 M5 brought not only to San Diego but also the first e28 M5 brought to North America for sale. Originally owned by Rug Cunningham of Cunningham (El Cajon) BMW. See http://www.bmwmregistry.com/models.php?id=2 .. Awesome car!
I’d also like to know where the road he is on is. He has a Ducati license plate frame, so he likely knows all the good roads! Great story.
That inside sounds must be like a drug.
I love the idea of finding a car that you love brand new and enjoying it for decades. But if I was trying to find that “one special car” right now to keep for the long haul, I have no idea what I would choose.
That may make a good “poll” type question as to what may make a good candidate.
Great poll idea!
If I can turn back the hands of time, it would be the e30 M3.
Great job with the piece Randy and Petrolicious! Where exactly was that mountain road btw? 😀
Beautiful! What an awesome M5 owner, keeping it that nice for 400k miles. Easily my favorite BMW. Thanks for this one.
Respect to the owner 400k miles on the chassis is impressive. Great video as always
Another nice video. Those mountain roads remind me of the ones around Ramona and Barona area.
An excellent story and feature! Randy and his M5 are iconic within the BMW E28 community – Thanks so much for featuring this car and owner on your outstanding site. I’m already thoroughly enjoying June’s “Bavarian Experience!”
Great story! Ultimately I want my car to look like about like his. Already have the RK’s and Dinan upgrades. Next up is euro conversion. I’m actually wanting to source the euro bodykit and lights for my M5.
Beautiful. It really sounds like it’s being driven as intended! 400k with no issues is very very impressive.
Wonderful video and story.
The Shark is the coupe (M6). This car was known as Black Bart in the period.
“The Shark”, as most people call it. Well done Randy, you’ve got yourself a piece of history right there. Often overlooked by some people, but cherished by true enthusiasts that know what this car is all about.
