E30: Gena

My e30 is one of my most orthogonal projects as its so very different from all the digitical fabrication I work on. Nearly everything in that car is analog or on the advent of transitioning to digital systems. It's a 91 318 putting it at the tail at end of production. It features a modern engine (read: electric ignition timing) which is sometimes called the baby m3 as its very similar to how the first racing edition of bmw's 3 series was built.

Gena (named lovingly after the russian cartoon character I grew up with Gena the Crocodile) is an ongoing project in Zen and the art of bmw matinence.
