        This may be stuff that you already know, but having owned a few Alpina cars I thought I would mention the following: 1) Alpina has stamped the blocks on all of their builds since the early 80's. No stamp, no Alpina. 2) Alpina has issued it's own VINs since 9/85. 3) Alpina is pretty helpful these days about answering questions on the older cars. For a while they were difficult to get information from, but that gave them a bit of a black eye in the enthusiast community and that seems to have changed. Anyway, hope that helps, The car in question is obviously a steaming hunk of funky junk. A real Alpina B6 3.5S is at the absolute top of my want list. I got to drive one in the late 90's in Belgium. Have never quite shaken it off. When 2015 hits, I plan to start shopping.

            I believe this car was built as a project by CR's BMW Whole Sale in Newville PA.
