The BMW Bavaria was the M5 before the M5 existed.

These photos are from the 80s, and this car is currently sitting in Kadunza’s parking lot. The original owner of this Bavaria had Korman Motorworks rebuild the entire car with triple Weber sidedraft carburetors, Korman suspension, and Recaro seats. The owner then sold the car to a man in Knoxville, Tennessee. Since these photos were taken, the previous owner allowed this Bavaria to rust and decay. Kadunza picked up this car as a candidate for future restoration. Follow Kadunza on Facebook to keep up-to-date on this complete Korman restoration.

So it’s been about a week now since I reported my 1972 Datsun 240Z as being stolen. It was stolen from North Pickering, Ontario, Canada sometime in the last two months or so. It is unique so if it shows in public it will be easily recognizable. Beautiful blue with licence Z240 (that won’t be there) and period Konig wheels. Many of the pictures I posted do not show the duckbill spoiler. It was added later and painted to match the car. Under the hood is awesome: triple sidedraft Weber DCOE 45s with custom intake and headers. The original 240 engine was replaced with a 280 with serial number L28 317613. The VIN seen through the driver-side windshield is HLS30-88798. In addition to the 280 engine there is a new aluminum radiator with electric fan. There is an MSD electronic ignition. Custom 2.25 inch single exhaust routes the sound to the rear. There are new stainless steel bumpers front and rear without the overriders. The interior re-done in original white and the steering wheel is original. The original gearshift knob remains, but the original transmission was replaced with a rebuilt 5-speed and mated to a 4.11 R200 differential.
This has been my car for more than 40 years. If you should ever spot it, please report it to the police or contact me through Facebook or email Bluebird@sadavidson.com . I am offering $10,000 in reward money for information that results in the recovery of the vehicle as long as it is still in the perfect or near to perfect condition as when it was stolen. All I want is the car returned. The thief or thieves are not my concern.

I forgot where I got these ads from, but check out how the Japanese car culture was customizing their mini trucks back in the day. Recipe for a vintage JDM pickup = dual Weber sidedrafts, lowering kit, alloy wheels, and fender mirrors.
