I had been searching for the kind of car that when I walk away from it and look back, I'd smile (and I still do that every time). Every guy from my class thinks I'm a fool when I park the BMW a kilometer from my school because the spaces are too tight and I'm afraid my doors will get dinged, but I wear it as a badge of honor.

Wojtek says his car elicits strong reactions from people. Classic cars always seem to, and he recounted a story to us from recent memory, where “… During refueling at a gas station a stranger came up…and said, thank you for improving my mood today. It is beautiful." He loves that his 300 can improve someone's day. But moreover, he says he loves the way the 300 makes him feel.

I grew up driving tractors on a dairy farm, but the first car I drove on a regular basis, after I got my driver's license, was my parent's 1993 Mercedes 220E. It was very rusty, the suspension was worn, the exhaust was held up by a bit of wire and every gear change with the 4-speed automatic had a chance of breaking your back. But driving that car had left quite an impression on me.

When the Caccavos made the “$10,000 Rule,” Dean was on the hunt for a BMW E28 M5. He found a 1988 model for just under $9,500, snapped it up, and today, more than 200,000 miles later, it’s still his daily driver. Dean enjoyed the E28 platform so much that he eventually bought a 1987 535is for DonnaRae–for less than $10,000, of course.

My favorite drive is a yearly ritual. Annually, for the past six years, my son and I drive three hours to Limerock Race Park in Lakeville to attend the Historic festival. The drive through the Berkshires and eventually down Rt. 7 is great. It's great mostly because it's just me and Finn in our Porsche. But the road is twisty and undulates perfectly for the 911...

Underhood, a downsized 2,133cc five-cylinder engine was turbocharged to the tune of around 450 bhp in competition tune. A massive KKK turbocharger rated at 1.05 bar meant that the car’s engine displacement actually needed to be reduced in order to comply with FIA regulations. Even so, the Sport Quattro competed against cars in the 3,000 cc category.
