Updates, 2022.  Did a stereo in the E28 and I’m looking to sell it in 2023.  The E12 won two awards, one at the Back to the 80’s show for best German car, and then People’s Choice at the BMW Car Club “Nordfest” event in September.

Unfortunately I’m having major problems with this website and I’m about at my end of patience dealing with it.  The old photos of the car’s restoration are archived, but I don’t know when or if I’ll have the time to get the website fixed.  (no thanks to awful Elementor and WordPress errors, this software is crap)

You can find me over on Instagram @flipwils11 or on the mye28.com message boards.

Welcome to my Car page

The purpose of this page WAS to post some of the many links that I keep track of in my personal browser bookmarks. Now, it has morphed into some up to date info about my BMW E12 M535i, some of my other cars and garage topics, and other car related stuff. Enjoy!

I had the E12 and E28 entered into the Northstar BMW Car Club chapter’s 2022 “Nordfest” in Sept.  The E12 won People’s Choice!


The E12 M535i at last began a full bodywork repair and restoration in the Fall of 2013, and finally a repaint in the original white. This will take longer than I anticipate!

A New Beginning: June 2020

Finally, 7 years after the restoration started, the E12 M535i is back on the road with the stripes kit added!
