Alfa Romeo 155

We’re gonna start off 2012 with an Alfa. This is an old body from a TL-01 car. I’m gonna peel off all these old stickers, paint the trim, re-livery it, and set it up with some fresh Team Pogi wheels.

Ever seen a parking lot full of E30 M3’s? Me neither, until last Sunday! 47 total E30 M3’s plus lots of other choice BMW’s and good friends.

Long live the king

Nothing even comes close to how badass this car will always be.

Here’s a beautiful Christmas tree pic Jamie sent us. Of course, his tree is trimmed with none other than the holidays’ finest Team Pogi wheels!

Scratch built Opel GT!

Our customer Theo built this model up from scratch, including an interior. It’s just amazing.

So… the WRX is off to a new home, and I have a new daily/project. I’m already about a month behind on logging the progress, but I’ll try to start here from the beginning.

Even before the WRX was sold, I’ve been wanting a wagon, specifically something German. So I started doing research on the usual suspects. I initially wanted an older A6, but decided it was too common, and E39’s were a little too pricey for this purpose. So it was either an B5 A4 or an E34, but after a while, I kept going back to the old 124 wagons. So I started looking for one, and eventually found one in Long Beach. It was a 95 E320 and only had 122K miles, which isn’t too bad. It was a dark metallic blue, which was nice, but it had the usual minor dings and the front bumper had lost a fight with a parking block at some point.

But it was pretty solid, it drove well, was the right price, and came with some extra maintenance goodies like filters and spark plugs.
