THE LONG ROOF CLUB, BY N. LEFTEROV
ONE RALLY CAR, AND ONE DAILY DRIVER.
I have known Nikolai for quite a while now. I would say since about the time I jumped into a BMW. That same Red E34 540 introduced me to not only people in the US, but also in Bulgaria specifically in my hometown of Varna. Thanks to the E34 chassis I have created some solid friendships.
Naturally, I asked him to share some photos and info about his two Tourings.
He acquired the E30 in 2007 in a completely stock shape. In early 2008, he was in at a mechanics shop and saw an S14B20 on a pallet. The rest is history. The S14B20 didn't come in the E30 M3, but rather in a 320is coupe better knows as the Italian M-Tech.
The car became exclusively a weekend toy. Ironically, I haven't had a chance to drive the little S14 during my visits back home. I am hoping we can change that next time.
With the weekend car figured out, a daily was needed. In 2010, an E34 joined Nikolai added another Touring to his fleet. An honest 520i. It continues to be his DAILY driver to his date with 120,000 km (75,000 miles) on the clock.
