Red On Tan: 1986 BMW 635CSi
The shark nose e24 generation BMW is another beautiful classic coupe designed by Paul Bracq. The e24 was a replacement to the aging CS and CSL coupes, and over 86,000 were produced for worldwide consumption from 1976 through 1989. Not a huge volume Honda Civic sized number, but enough that they are cheap, AND they share parts with the 5-series, 7-series, etc. The BMW E24 6-series is one of those ‘in-betweener’ 80s classics; it isn’t quite a collectible classic, but un-restored examples aren’t a bad way to get into a European classic.

Obligatory ”can swap transmission?” I should bing that… ok, substantial work but doable.
I had the same color combo in a Euro version with a proper 5-speed. Sexy cars. My wife was constantly amazed how people would stop to look when it was parked in town or would pull alongside to admire it on the highway. She finally reconciled it as being like a nice pair of shoes.
Speaking of shoes, those wheels are ugly. Needs a set of BBS basketweaves.
I’d do bumpers before wheels, but who am I to judge.
Nice but it’s kinda red.
What to do?
Wheels > stick > bumpers > art
Except for whoever downvoted the stick, they can have a red ‘86 Lumina.
Lumina came out in ‘89. How about a Dynasty. Wait, ‘88. It’ll have to be a Sable.
