Hi Bruno,
So sorry to hear about your mishap.
As to your car, guess its an opportunity to
put it back together better than it was. I know
you have put a lot of work into your 535 and you have sure helped us all a lot with your web site and advice on the board. I have driven the 401 many times. When the 401 turns to ice, no kind of tires (maybe studded) will help. Most vivid recollection of witnessing a crash on the 401 when ice hit was looking into my rearview mirror and seeing a Z-28 Camaro spinning like a top then strike a concrete wall and take out two adjacent cars. The whole thing looked surreal.
Glad you are OK.
Best Wishes,

I just crashed my E34 in the Canadian highway (the 401). Ice and no snow tires is a deadly combination, don't try it at home. The 16 wheels that cause me to get out of my way and hit the wall, finished in the ditch.
The front is destroyed, I will post pictures if you want. I won't work on my website for a while. Now I have to get my E34 fixed.

'89 53?
