I'll get the ball rolling:
BMW 8-series? Started production in 1990, but at a guess you won't find a RHD until 1991
Great minds think alike! An 8 series has been a dream car of mine since I first saw one at Terenure Classic car show in the early 90s.
A chance conversation with a pal of mine reminded me that I needed to get on the hunt and after a few months and a few failed purchases, I found VIN #089 in the UK, first reg'd December '90 so a very early RHD 850i auto indeed! Got it imported into the state this side of Brexit and VRT is next week! Managed to do quite a bit of work to it over the last few weeks but a few bits left left to do including paint (obviously) but its remarkably solid having had quite a bit of time and money spent on it already. Hoping to have it all buttoned up by summer and try and get to at least 1 cars&coffee/show.
My daughter jumped in it as soon as it arrived so her mum couldn't give out too much
