‘It had been asleep for over nine years’

1997 BMW Z3 Nick Smy, Ox­ford

As an avid PC reader I thought I would send some pic­tures of my 1997 BMW Z3 that I found with my daugh­ter on the way to get food for our dog, Luna. The car was be­ing ad­ver­tised as spares and re­pairs as it had been asleep for nine years and didn't start. I orig­i­nally bought the car for parts as I needed a driver’s side mir­ror and seat for my other BMW… many parts are at a pre­mium for Z3s. How­ever, it was a dif­fer­ent story when I got the car home. I washed it off and de­cided it was too good to break and within four days, I had it run­ning. Three and a half weeks later, it passed its MOT with no ad­vi­sories. I think it's turned out pretty well but what would it look like if Fuzz got his hands on it?

Nick and Luna are chuffed with how Z3 turned out.
