All been done before. Fun Nevertheless

Hey,

Im Dan, just picked up this e30 with some healthy aspirations for it.

Info on the car...not really much. It came with 3 clusters so no clue on mileage, it had been sitting in upstate NY unregistered for 2 years, those 2 years I guess were the 2 years it was here, because all things considered there does not seem to be TOO much rust.

325, Auto. I will let the pictures do the rest.









and one of the project and the Daily.

I wish I could say that my NY car was rust free or even close to it.

possibly...not sure. kid said he had an e24 635... and kept saying that there was a local guy who deals in E9's ... paid 8 for it. since im not using the stock motor/tranny anyways or the interior for that matter, the fact that it is an auto that is somewhat hacked really didnt turn me away...just needed a relatively rust free unibody

im actually between Ithaca and Auburn.

Nice, it is really clean. I am always in Ithaca during the summer time. I love the falls and commons, the food is great there too. I am about 40 minutes from the Commons.

What engine are you thinking of going with? If I were you just swap the harness over to a 1.3 moto, do a 885 head swap and install a 5 speed.

I dont want to say what my plan is until i have the motor ordered. Basically I dont want to talk a huge game an not follow through.

EDIT: RB20det ordered

for clarification:

-sound/vib deadening has be removed everywhere except the doors ( foot wells, rear seat, tunnel front and rear, rear quarters, trunk)

spare tire well has been removed...

its alot more weight than i anticipated.

this week i am going to clean up the interior and start getting footers ready for the cage.
