The start!

Build005 1985 BMW E28 535 LS1 003

As I mentioned on the first page, I picked up an 85 e28 528e with a bunch of nice parts but a bad engine. The search for a LS1 donor commenced.

I found a wrecked 99 6 speed Camaro with a bunch of nice parts on craigslist... YES this was around 2011 before FB took over the world.

I had the Camaro and e28 shipped to my house in Michigan, and so it all began.
