I was doing some late night surfing on German eBay last night and came across this rare piece: A 2.1L Hartge motor for the e36 3 series and the current bid is only 188 Euros! Check out the pics:
I remember European Car’s e36 project from the mid-90’s and their rave reviews about this motor. Naturally I went to bed with visions of that badass motor in something like Paul’s 2002 project. I should’ve realized that the price was far too low, but I wanted to believe it could be possible. So this morning I ran the page through Google Translator and discovered this is actually just a display engine and is missing many key internals, like the pistons! Oh well, it was a fun pretending for a little while!
