The “Project Chicago” series of videos (which is almost finished) has seen some of the biggest peaks and valleys of any project car I’ve ever heard of, with multiple engine rebuilds in the span of months, but seeing the big, black Alpina moving under its own power has given me a new level of appreciation for the most hated 7-series.


So, block out 12-plus hours to watch the whole series, prepare for some dad jokes and enjoy more automotive schadenfreude than you can shake some BMW rod bearings at.
