Legends never die. Rusty Slammington certainly hasn’t. The E28 BMW 5 Series has been featured on the internet pages of Jalopnik for the better part of a decade, but now it’s finally done, and it’s out there putting BMW nightmares into your children’s heads.
Today’s Nice Price or Crack Pipe BMW E28 M5 represents one of the rarest of the series’ models with only about 2,200 ever built. This one looks almost factory fresh, but will its rarity and condition prove it’s worth its asking?
This isn’t a car - this is a stab in the face on wheels. How can this be real? And wait until you see the interior...
What do you do when you have an old BMW 5-Series just lying around? Yeah, you could turn it into a decent Lemons car. Or you could transform it into a rolling jukebox that sprays fog and dispenses cold drinks.
Today’s Nice Price or Crack Pipe 535i is an odd duck. It’s claimed to be a track car, but its sheepskin seat covers and lack of a cage call that assertion into question. It’s up to you to question its price.
This is not a BMW that drive your kids to school in. It's not a BMW some wealthy German businessman drives to an important meeting. It's not a BMW you buy to impress the neighbors.
Depending on where you are in the world, there's a good chance that the weather outside is pretty frightful. This means most people will want to stay off the roads. But for someone with the right set of tires, and the right set of skills, snow time equals fun drifty time.
Blame it on our love of all things station wagon, but after stumbling across this custom Cadillac station wagon we couldn't stop thinking about the wagons that should have been.
As car lovers we like to think we have a good idea what's going to happen when we hop into a car we've never driven before. Whether it's a pre-conceived notion about how truly terrible a car is or expected automotive euphoria behind the wheel of a car we've always lusted after, even if we don't think we know it all we…
The roundabout is a particularly awful traffic solution in the age of cars and stoplights. It's as if a bunch of city planners were sitting around wondering if perhaps people wouldn't drive better if they were dizzy. Alas, we wonder if the whole thing wasn't the ingenious invention of the owner of a RWD car.
A palindrome is a word or phrase that is spelled the same both forward or backward - like taco cat or as I pee sir, I see Pisa. The name of today's Nice Price or Crack Pipe BMW is a palindromic 535, but could you go either way on its price?
Sleepers come in many forms, from well disguised muscle cars to monsters in economy car clothing. After witnessing the insanity of the 728 horsepower Camry we started thinking about the variety of different options when it comes to creating a sleeper. This weekend we want to know about your ideal vision of a seriously…
When it came time to advertise the struggling 5000 model for 1987, Audi decided to take the road less traveled. That road wound itself around a Mercedes and BMW in a circular fashion, creating a vintage advertisement that hasn't aged any better than most Audi 5000s.
BMW didn't need sales pitches to sell cars in Australia in 1985. All they needed was some drama, some soft classical music, and two of the only vehicles with more exhaust emissions than a diesel powered 80s BMW.
Mike Burroughs had an BMW closer to a parts bin than a drivable car. After four weeks of chopping and customizing, Rusty Slammington was born: A Supra-powered street rod that can fit under a semi trailer.
When we started the race in hot, muggy Connecticut, 75 or so cars set out onto the track. When the race session ended at 10:00, only 35 cars were still running... and a BMW E28 had the lead!
