It’s been a hot week here at Reggie’s Motorworks!
First for some exciting news…Reggie’s Motorworks made the cover of Current in Westfield! Click here to read the article on Page 9! We got a call last week saying they wanted to interview Reggie and learn more about what he does. We are very pleased and excited about this great article!
Just the other day, we delivered the Alpinweiss 1988 325i cabrio to its new owner. We are very happy to report that he loves the car! He’s very excited to get it on the road…it’s safe to bet that he’s put a few miles on it already! Click here for a full gallery of the bodywork, and click here for more delivery photos. As you saw on the blog last week, the antenna is gone, as well as the spoiler and third brake light. And the rust…gone!
That’s the owner’s other Alpinweiss bimmer in the background:
Here’s the proud owner and enthusiast:
Remember last week when we mentioned that we were working on a 1989 325ix? Well, this car belongs to an enthusiast (Hi Tom!) whom we met last fall at Vintage Fest up near Chicago. He happened to be in Bloomington, IN and gave us a call when he found out something was wrong with his car. Did we tell you that the differential had been installed incorrectly by another shop? Now, you cannot tell by the photo that the drive shaft is bent, but it is. Reggie rolled it on a flat steel table, which confirmed its bent state. (Check out some more photos here.)
See the ‘teeth marks’? Those should not be there!
Check out this slimy, shimmery paste-like substance…isn’t it pretty? Yes, if you’re Lady Gaga! Otherwise, no, this is not pretty at all! Besides not being pretty, it smells too. Not good.
We were very happy to be able to help Tom out and get his ix back on the road. And he got to join us for the Cruise-In last Friday as well!
Last weekend we checked out the Mecum Auction. They had plenty to see, that’s for sure! Here’s a slideshow of some cars and details that caught our eye:
We’ll be back next week with details about an ’87 M3 and about our roadtrip to Vintage at the Vineyards!
Have a Happy & Safe Memorial Day Weekend!
