      Clearly, but is it a regionalism, or maybe just one screwball?

                That is the Craigslist we know and love..

                So amazingly nuts, yet you know we've all thought about it.

                  well, about 12 years ago, i used to live in this island community south east of houston. it was kind of like being in key west, but on a much smaller scale.

                  one day, i was walking through the local Habitat Restore and came across a heavy duty electric wheel chair that didn't work and a pretty darn nice brown leather recliner. i paid about 150 bucks for both and set to work making a mobile reclining chair. i used to get liquored up and drive it around the neighborhood. top speed was probably about 8 mph. unfortunately, we had hurricane Ike pass through in 2008. my beloved wheelchair went under about 3 feet of salt water and that was the end of it.

                          i don't have videos, but perhaps i might look through my old sd cards to see if i do indeed have a photo or two.

                              * complete, mostly clean interior

                              Some of the service performed over the past month:
                              - new timing belt, water pump & tstat
                              - new Bosch spark plugs, cap & rotor
                              - new valve cover gasket

                              - new guibo and center support bearing
                              - fresh differential fluid (Valvoline 75w90 LSD)
                              - replaced master cylinder, flushed brake fluid

                              Outstanding issues:
                              - paint is showing its age, clearcoat is deteriorating
                              - dented front fenders
                              - cracked dashboard

                              - A/C system needs attention
                              - differential could use a rebuild (or replace w/ stock 3.73)

                              I'm a vintage car mechanic and have owned and worked on numerous E30s. This is one of the most solid cars I've gone through, regardless of mileage. I have thoroughly inspected this car and corrected many of the typical E30 issues, as well as performing a full service. Once you have looked at other E30s in this price range, you will especially appreciate this car's originality. This is a healthy E30 that is ready for daily driver duty right away!





                              Did I do it right?
