Before buying my E21 and the 2.8L stroker engine, I had owned five other BMWs and one Mercedes (plus a few others). I love BMWs, especially the vintage models. Where did all of this BMW love come from? I have worked for over 20 years in the BMW parts industry, first with HMS Motorsport, 18 years at Turner Motorsport, and now with BimmerWorld. I have worn many hats but the most enjoyable and satisfying role has been the writing and editing done for various websites. Not only are cars a passion for me but I made them my livelihood as well.
