I am not very certain. But this looks very similar to a BMW M102. 3.2 Litre Straight 6. Was used in E23 745. Someone can confirm.

Based on all the evidence on offer, it looks like a LHD BMW Turbocharged 745i. I say LHD because the 3.2 engine (3.2 shown on the manifold) only came in turbo guise, which being placed on the right flank of the engine meant a steering column could not be fitted there. (There's very little one cant find on the Internet now a days ) All these cars were built with a 3-speed ZF 3HP22 automatic transmission.

His passion for alloys are clearly evident as the first new piece of kit on the (now lowered) Beemer seems to be the wheels. The car clearly has seen better days and is fortunate to end up in DQ's hands rather than rotting away in some random scrap yard.

My guess is the end product must be intended to look like below. If so the man has epic taste, as is proven already!

Someday, whoever inherits this garage will be one very lucky soul.

Wrong Picture on wiki page. It is a NA engine NOT Turbo, note the air intake. It is a M30B32.

Also based on the pics it may be an e28 5-series.

The internet can also be wrong sometimes

Looks like the engine is an M30B32 as pointed out by @mura, which is a naturally aspirated and not turbocharged.

So chances are this could either be an E28 5-series or E23 7-series, as this engine was used in both models.

But going by the pictures, I think it resembles more to the E28.

Looks like the 80 Series Land Cruiser got new paint and some upgrades.

Mods, please remove/edit if incorrect.

It's rare to find them speaking on the topic, but in this one it does come up a couple of times. Specifically minutes 10:18 & 21:00.

I just admire how sorted this guy is! The way he walks the talk and all the hoopla around being a car nut!

Also loved the way he described himself as carguy’s carguy! Praying he gets more hits and it paves way for more interesting cars.

Give me this garage over a supercar garage anyday!

In the driverís seat

Q. Your dream vintage car?
A. It is really difficult to restore vintage cars in India. Itís already difficult to import cars and parts for them, and the people who have them donít ever want to let go of them. But it would be a dream to restore an old Jaguar E-Type.

Q. Cars that are in the works?
A. Iíve got a couple of old BMWs that Iím currently restoring.

Q. Other interests?
A. I love to travel, but that too in some way is connected to vehicles. I try to rent an interesting car to drive on the trip.

Q. Touring a new place ó on a bike or a car?
A. I would prefer touring on a bike, but my family would say otherwise.

Another interview in which he touches upon the topic. Around 6:00, he talks about how he loves the stories associated with old cars and attempts to trace back the history of any car he buys or restores.

Also at 11 :00+ talks about Mr Mammooty's love for driving and the numerous Chennai Cochin trips they did and how Mr Mammooty knew all the different routes in and out and also places to stop for the best food and experiences.

Spotted this BEAST on GST Road near Airport this morning.

BTW, Excellent driving - Whoever was driving used indicators for every lane change

Albeit a few months late, here's Dulquer's latest acquisition, a 991.2 Porsche 911 GT3 in Miami Blue.

The car is loaded to the brim with all the quintessential options including PDLS, PCCB, 918-esque bucket seats, a cage and of course it's a manual!
