    Hi, my name is Milton and I joined the club a few months ago but I never had the chance to introduce myself so here I go:

    I own an Alpinaweiß E34 5 series, sadly it's an automatic (although sometimes that's a blessing specially in rush hour traffic) and I use it as my daily driver. It's been with me for two years and I love it. I have a soft spot for old school Bimmers, I just love them. In the time that the car has been under my protection I have done a few things to keep it road worthy as I travel a lot with it, I drove it all the way to New Hampshire and I do travel a lot to NY, NJ and PA. The radiator was replaced two years ago, a year ago I re did the whole suspension when it miserably failed at its job and broke in the middle of a trip to Cherry Springs Park in PA. The brakes were done a few months ago and a few weeks back I did the front end (control arms, bushings, tie rods and all that jazz) so far the 5er has been reliable and a good mate in my long drives.

    I'm planning a paint job for the car as it is old and the pair shows a lot of scars, but it's a lot better than other newer cars I've seen on the road. In a future I'm planing to do a 5 speed swap if I don't put my hands on a 2002, I love those little bastards, sort of a dream car for me.

    I will be more active in the forums as I planning to gain a lot of knowledge about old school Bimmers.

    Thanks for reading my little introduction. Have a wonderful day guys.

    Welcome Milton and very nice e34! Since you like putting miles on your car, you should definitely try to make Pittsburgh Vintage Grand Prix in July. Its an incredible show and always a great club turnout. Hope to meet you at an event soon

    you said you have an alpine e34? is that just a B10?

    Welcome, I have a soft spot for E34's, you just don't see them much anymore. I believe E39's are headed that way also, they are to cheap, and still drive rather well, so they get eaten alive by folks.
