          The owner is leaning on the fender, his name is Tod. We see the car fairly often, and he is an avid enthusiast and very meticulous in his cars.

          You can read all about it here: http://www.vsr1.com/success_2800cs.htm

          If you like that car, wait until we finish one of our current projects! I can't/won't post photos yet, but it'll be worth it.

          Great turnout and nice weather you guys had!!

          Spray paint and tire shine doesn't equate to a "restoration!"

            I always had a soft spot for these cars, they are amazing and absolutely gorgeous, my love has been awakened and I think I now know what my next project will be, check out these 2 from Watkins Glen this past weekend (I'll post a lot more pics in a separate thread)...

            :OMG:







            and this super Uber awesome clean 3.0L CS

              If the 2nd car pictured is the one I think it is... it was found in a barn/garage in that condition... super low mileage.

              This one has come into our shop every now and then before being stuck back in a garage for safe keeping.



              FWIW.... think long and hard about getting into a CS project. I can tell you right now, it will make any one of your e30 projects look like "chump" change. These cars are in many ways, more expensive to turn into projects than an E30 M3. (But my goodness they are attractive!)

                      NOT SURE, it looked very interesting but I didn't have a chance to stop by and look at it :shit:

                      I liked the CSL So much so that I even got the 1:18th scale replica

                        Looks to be very similar to a Cadillac Allard.

                            I'm with you guys, the 2800 and 3.0 CS and CSL are gorgeous cars. I've only ever seen them in pictures.

                              Great pictures. Looked like a large variety of cars there. I loved the m3 & m1. I wonder if that was a real turbo 2002 or a replica?
