Hello board,

As some of you noticed when you came by...there was an E30 M3 shell in our shop that was getting an extensive build. The purpose as I explained to some is for the 2010 Targa Newfoundland race (http://www.targanewfoundland.com). The drivers some of you know (Herb Wong "MGYVER" and Desmond Sie from BMW Toronto) competed in the last competition with an E34 M5. This year...they have built a solid E30 M3.
