Ron Burgundy Killed the Red Baron

Yup, the Red Baron is gone. The '91 BMW 325i is now off to lands unknown and for it we received a fistful of Hundreds and this which was quickly dubbed "Ron" Burgundy.

We had high hopes for the 325i but I had always like the looks of the 2002 series BMW. It had a more classic style to it. So yesterday we made the trade. It is a rolling chassis, no engine or transmission along with no interior. I think, know, I made a good deal on this. The Red Baron was a great car but we made a little money on it and got this one to boot. What are the plans? Well of course it should be a race car. I doubt I'll hurry this project along. Research, research and more research first. Then slowly collect parts (some I have lined up already) and start doing some body work. It is a clean car, some spots that need rust attention but nothing that would ever scare us away.

More to come, the rest of the pictures are of Ron and Brock. Brock had to come up and start work on it right away. I think I've created a monster.
