    just brought a z3m roadster (the cheap with plenty of miles one) ready for next summer to fill the open top motoring i miss with the other two, due to me wednesday and then i find out if i brought well or brought a pig , my take on things is I'm prone to upgrading so if it turns out to be a dog i will strip it and do some modifications and make it right. Hear is a couple of pictures of the two i already own
    2000 z3m coupe awaiting to be lowered

    Cool didn't think it would be long before that one would be snapped up. Excellent choice in vehicles by the way, you are one lucky guy from a very jealous guy. ;)

    Thanks for your comments they haven't come easy used to buy new all on finance untill I sat and worked out all the money I was throwing away so I sold all , that is when I got rid of my last z3m roadster 12years ago sold for 20000 then had to pay a further 8000 to settle the finance it killed me as I loved that car . Got over it started saving hard as and when the spare cash was there and started my collection . Every car has different appeal and the roadster is going to fill a gap nicely
    Can't wait!
    Nowadays it's only my wife that buys new (range rover evoque) how times change

    who knows? haven't seen it yet !
    some say I'm mad but its the unknown that keeps you alive,whats the worse that could happen at the money.
    its only money we could all be dead tomorrow as your line says
    Better to burn out in this life!

    I was joking from the sale thread, if I had the spare cash I would have bought it, and like you the broken bits then get modded or upgraded.

    And yes better than fade away!

    I agree the best looking porsche built ,the only one i would be tempted by would be a 993 turbo but way out of my price range,i love the lines of the z3m coupe and roadster but the trouble with keep buying them is it puts another delay on my cobra project,yet again gone the long way round designed my own chassis ,jag running gear 1966 289 hp motor 4 speed t10 with jag 307diff. the trouble or joy with designing it yourself is there is nothing of the shelf so all gets made the way i want it but kicks you in your wallet
    SDC10034.JPG
    at the same time,it is now on its running gear with fuel tank ,steering and rad installed and i have just finished exhaust but no up to date photos.
    The money spent on the m roadster will put this on the back burner for a while until i raise some more funds
    The joys of cars with all there ups and downs is something you either get or you don't
    For those that don't stop moaning and for those that do long may you enjoy it!

    Not quite as clean and tidy at the moment as i have been fabricating in there thats why there is know up to date photos as i could not stand showing the mess(a touch of ocd i fear) so decided to build a 3 car one attached to the back to put the porsche and bmw then the one i have out front can turn into a fab shop for making mess and this one can stay tidy.
    Thats a sore point with my wife as its not yet finished (heating and electrics to go) and i have already brought the car to fill it
    she says i built it on purpose i say it just happened that way.
    And I'm sticking to the story
