October 2012 - Gary Stenzel - E30 M3
Gary Stenzel has been a longtime BMW enthusiast, the highlight of his collection being this immaculate E30 M3. The car has constantly evolved over the last few years into the beast it is today. Gary is active in the Northwest BMW community (www.nwbmwforums.com) and can be seen out at many local events. A large portion of the modifications were handled by European Autohaus in Spokane, Washington. Many of the photographs here were taken by well-known automotive photographer Mike Kippen (www.mkippen.com/automotive/ ).
