I feel very sad here, very very sad... it was very nice workmanship... Just like the redmist e21 M30 3.5L...

Jeremy, if u read this, what happened? it was like head on a pole (power line) ?

Indeed, a very sad day for all in e21 land.
Hope you start the re-shell soon!

It looks like a total, but just walking away from a crash like that is good news. Thank God, no loss of life with an accident of that magintude. It looks like a telephone pole jumped in the road.

You can always rebuilt it with another car.

apparently it was a tree... very sad stuff indeed

Jeremy's other projects look promising though... 323i shell for the M3 engine and an Alpina B6

I feel your pain, I was depressed for about two weeks. Best thing to do is take the good parts and have it towed away as soon as possible. Having to look at the wreck every day is just too awful.

I real testament to BMW though, as with my car the doors opened fine and the windsheild wasn't even cracked. The car absorbed the energy not the driver.

Maybe next car he should put the US bumper on- he would have walked out with out a scratch!

Yeah with those big USA bumpers the tree may have never hit the hood. I told my son he can take his bumpers off after he drives for a couple of years. Im sure he is going to hit something eventually. :0

I think it would be the other way around. The bumper would survive, but the car and driver probably won't.

You've got to treat them trees with respect! i've seen cars completly torn apart by hitting a tree and its not even shaken a leaf from the most its scratched the bark off.
I dont think there is anything i would like to hit less than a tree.

A police van wouldn't be good, but at least it moves, tree's don't, neither do telegraph posts.

If to aim for inanimate objects on/off the road, mail boxes, newspaper stands, and fire hydrants for the cool special effects (if to go out, then go out in style). Also of note, street lamps and some other 'permanent' fixtures are supposedly designed to collapse upon severe impact to take some of the force. I'm not sure our lightwieghts will do it unless you're really going berserker (in which case hey... even you know you deserve whatever fate dishes out).

I dropped in on Jerremy last weekend on the way back to Germany.
He's a decent and very clued up chap. I saw alot of the projects his garage is working on including the car in question [Which was totally stripped-engine out and which he'll totally rebuild!]
Rest assured he has some other interesting E21 projects in the pipeline and if everything goes according to plan, he may be totally rebuilding my own golden steed! We talked over the exact spec, and the advantage with him is he knows exactly what is possible and what can fit with what.
I mean that E21 M3 used a truncated 6 series semi-trailing arm/cross memeber set up with a Z3 M coupe rear diff!

Regarding the wrecked car- he told me it happened in the wet when he was over taking someone but had to then later lift off for a bend- the resulting Delta-engine torque/engine braking caused the rear end to snap out! This suprised me considering the 6 series tame 13 degree semi trailing arm angle- compard to our E21s massive 20 degrees or even the E30s 15 (Don't forget the E30 M3 Group A race cars had to REDUCE their trailing arm angle]

Oh, and it was a couple of trees that he hit
