Nostalgia has a funny way of coloring our memories of the past in a hue of rose. The further we travel away from it, the more we become convinced that things will never be as grand as they once were. However, if we’re constantly looking back, we risk missing the gifts of the present. We neglect the opportunity to implement the lessons from yesterday, with the technology of today; in order to burn some serious rubber tomorrow.
Ira Schacter, the owner of one of the most insanely intricate project builds we’ve ever come across, has decided to pay homage to the past in a way that illustrates just how far automotive culture has come.

This is the embodiment of mechanical precision and hand-built execution. And it is mind-blowingly awesome.
Perhaps, we should say THESE are the days. Read More

It all started in 2011 when Dr. Dan Schaut installed an Active Autowerke supercharger to propel his V8 E9x M3 for the OLOA race across America. Since then and for a fourth time, Dan Schaut with his son Ben Schaut has place the silver E9x M3 as the best finishing BMW. This year they won their class, and came tenth overall as well.
