    I thought 356's were just upgraded VW engines. When did they put an overhead cam in one?

    Gotta love some of the crack pipe pricing that certain sellers are trying to get for e30s these days - for example:

    https://www.carsales.com.au/cars/det...2443811/?Cr=37

    $79k for a S54 swapped 325is that generally looks good, but has a leaking radiator, broken handbrake and stone chips?

    Surely if you’re asking for top dollar, then fix the radiator, and handbrake, and buy some touch up paint!

    For reference you could buy two euro spec e36 M3s or e92 M3s for that price, buy an immaculate e46 M3 for $15k - $20k less, or a near new F87 M2.

    1987 BMW 320i - $27,500

    Not typical to the US market, the fuel injected or “i” series of the 320 model make for a stunning ride. Having to sustain the success of the E21 platform, BMW had a task on their hands. Coming to America via Monoco Auto Collections (Ohio) April 2021, she was scooped up and transferred to Austin, TX. Our current owner just can’t continue to subject such a unique auto to the harsh Texas rays, even though he’s put 11,000 kilometers on her, respect has him looking for a collector. And why not, these cars have a huge cult following, from enthusiasts to us Gen-Pop’s, few cars have attracted the same widespread affection at the chassis code E 30 BMW.

    Dark blue, she is as original as the day she arrived in Japan. It is reported that no repairs have ever been performed on this vehicle’s exterior. Bold, beautiful, and full of character, that circa’ 1980’s front grill and nose became iconic with driving pleasure.

    Matching and balancing the blue is a deep dark and original blue cloth interior. Nothing has been reported as altered or changed, and her condition is pristine. All glass is stated as original and all functions from window operation to climate control are reported to perform proper. Please note that the handicap assist controls, per our Owner, have been carefully removed and all interior functions are back to original.

    Original, untouched is the Euro fab’d 2.0 litre In-line 6 cyl. Fuel injected Single Overhead Camshaft (SOHC) and perfect, she’s a testament to German engineering, and makes the BMW a driver’s machine. Updated is a new air conditioning system, timing chain, all hoses and belts, fuel pump and a complete and in-depth tune bring her to like new mechanically. Backing is the 4-speed automatic tranny. All remaining running gear and suspension are factory stock.

    i know someone who does it from time to time. it takes time, you have to choose your auctions careful, and it never pays huge. you might break even or just a touch better, after getting them sorted and insured. on the upside you can get to drive a bunch of interesting cars on the kind of cheap plan.
    Yep, clearly. No maintenance, no real effort to sell the car, and asking too much. Undoubtedly will sell soon because people are dumb.

    That has potential to look cool imo but would be way too much work to be worth it to anyone.
