I finally made it out to another Cars & Coffee with my son and it was a great turn out. The California rains finally pulled back and let the sun shine thru and Corona car owners were able to bring out their garage queens and some daily drivers for people to admire.
Not sure what platform this kit car is based off of, but it had an S2000 shift knob, Corvette mirrors, Miata gauge pod and what appears to be sitting on a Lotus wheel base. The owner was not around when I came back by the car after snapping the other pics.
Now this is worth getting up at 7 am on a Saturday. I was able to speak to the owner of this very rare and pristine M5 wagon. He told me that it is 1 of 4 or 6 in the world. BMW never put the M5 wagon into production, but they did a few prototypes. It is a E39 wagon with a FULL…I repeat FULL M5 conversion. Motor, suspension, wheels, exhaust, 6 speed manual as well as the seats. He told me it is putting out over 400 hp with a 0-60 time in the low 4’s. A true unicorn! The owner purchased the car in 2014 and only takes it out on the occasional weekend. He told me that the car only has a little over 3k miles on it…OMG!
As you can see, it’s a 65 Notchback.
This is the Maclaren I posted the other day. As you can see it was the star of the show. It was a little difficult to get some clear shot due to all the people crowding around. It was a new purchase so the owner had to show it off. One day…
I’m glad to see that people are still attending this event here at Saleen in Corona. I need to get out to the Cars & Coffee in Palos Verde one day. Thats where the big boy toys are.
Thanks for looking.
