Great article from Jalopnik, its a long read but worth it. to sum things up this guy bought an almost 20 year old  BMW off craigslist for $500 made some modifications so that car could compete in a sanctioned Rally Race, it placed 3rd in its class. Now that is an epic tale.

If you think you can’t do something, you’ll never be able to do it. No matter how easy it is.

I caught this article a couple days ago, my favorite part is when he is working on the car, and the Mexicans said that he works like a Mexican, that comment and the response made my day.
