Contrary to what you might think, I'm still a gearhead at heart and will watch about any kind of racing that involves gears and wheels. So when I heard Red 9, a fabrication and speed shop in Bellvue, KY was hosting an open house I was there. They had just gotten back from a truck race in Texas where sadly they DNF'd but picked up a ton of valuable experience.
The first thing to catch my eye was this BMW 2002, now I love a good "barn find" story and always think, they have to be exhausted right? With the internet people know they're sitting on gold mines. Nope they're still happening.
An old lady in Philly wanted $800 for this, she got a fistful of dollar bills shoved at her and a day or so later with another 8large in repairs this was driven back to Cincinnati.
amazing how clean this BMW was sitting in a dusty fab shop
destined for the vintage race car circuit
