    Not any worse than 75% of the twin cam swaps on here.

    Curious what the non butter'd up 91 will go for. Coolant leak, one jack point crush, pre molested state, dry rott tires. Might be a good buy.

    Well, that's about as regular of an E30 as you can get, will finally be curious to see where it ends up.

    I guess it's a gamble listing when BaT dictates the reserve price, but the auction being at likely the worst time of year definitely would play a massive part too.
    I don't know how auction timing works, but it sounds like it's another shaft by BaT.

    Also I didn't realize it was a salvage car, and it strikes me as odd to use that specific car for a full restoration, but then again, it's a 318is so yeah
    Yeah, using that car for an "investment" project like this was the mistake. If he had more than $40k in parts alone then ouch... Restored as obsessively as it was, it will always be a grade lower than a car that didn't need the amount of work it did. The body turned out nice but I'd credit the rebuilt stroker motor for adding ~$10k to the final bid. Without that it's just a OEM+ restomod with shiny new hardware and some choice parts. I realize that's drastically underselling what's gone into this car, but I think that's the lesson here.

I took photos for a guy's ad of his Landrover Defender and BaT took about 3 months before listing it once they got all the information. Their server crashed on the final day so no bidding could happen, and then they randomly reloaded the auction for a 2 day shootout without any real notice. Suffice to say, it didn't meet the reserve.

    No problem. I actually keep Alpinas separate but there was only one this last year and it didnt sell.

    The Others included a Baur, a M3 Sport EVO, a few racecars and stuff thats rare enough that it doesnt warrant its own list.
