It is a great engine if you ever read the specs, very similar to what Jonathan has in his E30 M3 now minus the evo 3 blcok. So its at some shop and they get the engine in but it won't start. So they do a compression test and somehow decide that all but one cylinder has low compresion. At this point Turner is like, just bring it to me i'll fix it. The guy says no, these guys can handle it. So in the process of "fixing" the "low compression" problem, they break some stuff. So now he has a race car buble car that doesn't run.
I mean it is sometimes a pitty to see such cars just sit and not get driven, but not in this case. I'm with Mark, this car belongs in a museum. Its a pity some dufus had to go and ruin the most perfect example of a stock E30 M3 in the us today. Stupid people anger me.
Moral of the story: DON'T RACE TEH BUBBLE CAR! Buy a shell and spend the money on upgrading it.

exactly my thoughts, guys a moron, how can you blow a an m engine, first of all after that many years in a bubble, youd be stupid to not rip apart the whole engine and rebuild it with new everything.

Just got an e-mail back with shipping prices...

Dear Anthony;
Thanks for your inquiry:

> shipped to Quebec Canada?
>
> CC16 16' long x 72" wide x 68" tall indoor car capsule

Shipping by airmail would cost about $75.00. I can look into the cost
of shipping by UPS but I need your complete address including
postal code. I'd prefer UPS because of increased reliability over the
post, capability of tracking during shipment, and it would probably
cost less.
Please note that I cannot quote cost of customs duty or brokerage
fees.

Regards,
Ray

Tony, I'm sure you'd still need a garage to put the bubble+car in. I don't think a bubble outside would be a good idea. Or even in a Tempo thingamajig.

Yeah I was thinking about that cause once you get Ice and snow on it...it'll probably tear and then you'll have a flat.......It's better to store it in a garage to keep the car away from dust and what not....I think it's cool, but then watch car shows start using them on high end cars so no one can get close to it and end up scratching the paint....that would suck..

Or one of those Psycho Buckingham Raccoons could destroy it with one quick and lethal swipe.

What you could do is get a dog. This could distract said Psycho Buckingham Raccoon.
