I first got into cars because of my stepdad, he used to drag motorcycles, so I was exposed to the sights, the sounds and the smells of a drag strip from an early age.

1987 BMW 535is
I'm a 29-year-old US Army veteran, native from Puerto Rico, whose second home in Texas. My hobbies are cars, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and gaming. Currently a contractor for the military and going to school for a bachelor in Christian Theology.
I first got into cars because of my stepdad, he used to drag motorcycles, so I was exposed to the sights, the sounds and the smells of a drag strip from an early age. There was always something quick with a motor in my house, bikes, Atvs, boats or scooters. Growing up in PR is all about the Japanese car so gravitated towards them, my first real modded car was a JDM RHD AE86. This opened the floodgates to who I am now! I love the car scene and what I like is that it is a place where you can express your individualism, your creativity and at the end of the day you get to drive, cruise with your friends in your ride!
My car Is an E28, 1987 BMW 535is Car Kinda fell into my lap after I got divorced I had 2 other BMWs for sale and a friend had the e28, he offered it to me and at first, I was hesitant. I only knew about the 90s early 00s BMWs. But I always loved the off centred exhaust and the quad headlights, it needed some engine work and other maintenance fixes. So we traded and then Rona hit. Fixed most of the issues and started modifying it. It has become one of the cars I truly enjoy and I think is very representative of my personality.
My advice if you want an E28, E30 pretty much any older BMW don't wait, prices are not going to go down. Get it as soon as possible. Be careful when you slam them the oil pan seat below the frame so you will break it. Already broke mine.
Driving and cruising it's fun and you can throw it through some twisties with confidence or just slow it down and enjoy the ride. But with how low it is sometimes is a little stressful. Even when it was stock it gathered attention because most people think it is an E30 and there are not a lot of them on the streets. I think what makes mine unique is definitely the bumper, they are from a 1990s BMW 5 series, E34.
Most of the work was done by myself and my best friend Tony Hudson. Many others have helped Angel, David, Peka and Jerry. Painting the bumpers was my friend Joshua Gonzalez at “Inline six paint + body” who did an awesome job at paint matching them with the rest of the car.
