    Nah, judging by the door gap it's a 1970s car.

    Either “Eddie” or his boyfriend “Bernard” have given me the impression that in their own minds, they think they are clever descriptive writers. but when you read the ad about the only thing that comes to mind are two cheese balls dressed in puma track suits, a shitload of gold chains, and white leather ankle boots.

    Judging by the door gap, I doubt that paint is original as stated. Why is it listed on philly Craig’s if it’s sitting in Miami? Bedazzled pimp badges are a fine touch tho.....

    I guess this car could be special to someone. It's just plain fugly and way overpriced to me though.

    Along with her custom features she includes an exhaustive list of Cadillac features that make this Cadillac a low mileage and well loved stand-out.

    What sucks about facebook marketplace is that you have to adjust your location to look for cars that are 100miles or more away from you.

    Now that facebook marketplace is a thing I'm going to hate looking for additional cars even more than I hated it in the past.

    This add for a M3 that I found on FB marketplace.
    Original paint in good condition. Small nickel dings and scratches common on a car driven daily . Never raced . Commuted and took my kids to school in it . Most reliable car I’ve ever owned !

    I'll take a shot, alot of this is conjecture but I think I have it in the ballpark
    A long while ago there was a west coast SIG member named Rob Ferrero that had a Gruppe A car of undetermined provenance.
    I never got a chassis number off it, I think it could have been built from a road car chassis. I think it came from Italy.
    When I was shopping for Gruppe A cars I looked at it, I have lots of pictures of it. Ultimately its not the one I bought, but I think that car did get sold to west coast Club Racer Gil Caravantes who I think also had a few ex PTG cars.
    I think Gil then tore the car completely apart and "restored" it, but also altered it into his version of a Gruppe A tribute car. I have a few pictures post restoration of that car.
    I think this is that car with a few more things to take it to the full Warsteiner livery (of which it was not originally).
    There are a few giveaways, it still has the original 1st gen Gruppe A airbox which Rob's car had (as did mine), the same coil pack arrangement, the instrument cluster is identical to what was in Robs car with some labeling updates (not BMW motorsport standard of the day but very close), also the dash panel switch gear is how Rob had it, but updated (does not / did not have the standard BMW motorsport breaker box on the trans tunnel). Also the cage is not an original Matter cage which I dont think Rob's had one either which is why I believed it was never a Matter shell and subsequently did not buy it. Its got a cut through the trunk fuel cel not the more standard "well cell" bag types that the Gruppe A cars had. I think that was a later Gil addition.

    There are lots more little things I could go on about, the fenders are still rolled outward exactly the way they were when Rob had it although now it sports the later one piece 18" DTM92 wheels which I think probably attributes the high ride height. Also it looks like the real Gruppe A struts are gone.When Rob had it thats what was still in it, but these seem to be more modern adjustable dampers.

    I think this chassis did see some privateer Gruppe A action in Italy back before Rob owned it, but I would bet nothing of provable provenance and I am pretty sure its not one of the Matter shelled cars.
    It shows a VIN, but who knows if its really the right one.

    Its a very nice looking car though and probably a whole lot of fun. This car has been around west coast tracks a long time and west coaster BMWCCA track regulars will probably recognize it from its earlier iterations.

    well, it says "tribute". to me, this means there is no race provenance. it looks like someone did a really good job with it though.

    The Official 'Craigslist find' thread - awesome & awful (eBay, Kijiji, etc.)

    This car was shared in my AZ E30 group on Facebook. Seemed too good to be true. Taking a second look I’d say yes.

    I’d love to look at it as I’m local but I don’t want to waste his time.

    Maybe I can convince him to come to the Bimmers and Breakfast meet up this Saturday.

    Thing looks like it’d roll on any corner taken higher than 2 mph. I wonder if supervisors used it as a form of punishment for those on parking duty..
