    WOT, but my grandpa and I watched this one thoroughly. These are such a fucking cool car. Really surprised it didn't fetch more.

        There are more opinions and views on classic cars from (as is) i want all the rust never paint to put it in a nitrogen bubble with 20 miles on the clock and don't touch.

        I think its preference but also depends seriously on what type of vehicle it is.
        The lack of AC is also hurting the value, for some reason it's a primary turn off for people these days.

        But the rust situation isn't pretty on your wagon and as with any purchase you have to overcome that initial reaction for buyers to walk at the first sign of difficulty/trouble. Having had a few tourings I wouldn't buy yours without further inspection, and peeling the carpet back in a few key areas to assess other potential hidden rust spots.

          Agree RHD and no AC drag value down in US
          AC should be retrofitted. It’s involved but not hard

            Because in a most of the country it's nice to have AC for at least a few months out of the year

              Look at it another way, I had a 1984 Hartge H5S, but it was done up before Hartge got manufacturer plates, so records are spotty. Add to that, it was possibly assembled, or maybe reassembled by a shop in FL during federalization. In that case it's a Hartge car, but not really a Hartge car, which probably hurt it's value, and I suspect you are in a similar boat.

              Add to that, Hartge is probably more obscure than ACS, although that's very debatable.

                  George, you should direct your comments to the appropriate party, otherwise the edit does not make much sense to the group.

                  Also, r3v is bullshit, and that's why we love it. We have an obligation to give each other a hard time in the name of creating interesting reading.

                        QFT, if you're soft you should just share your feelings on instagram with the hashtag #FUCKR3V

                              All Ygtbsm1969 needs is 2 people who want the car bad enough and I'm sure we'll see some excitement tomorrow. I suspect the bidder pool is smaller so you don't have all the jokers bidding it up early. I really don't understand why anyone would bid early other than to build up credibility on their profile (I've done this too).

                                I wish they would post 1/2 as many engine compartment shots and undercarriage shots as they did interior shots.

                                On the surface it looks really well done. Basically a stock E30 with a 24v engine which is not a bad way to go as long as its done well.

                                The photography is a winner on that ad.
