    Story behind the car:

    So there's not a whole lot special about this car itself, but I think the story is kind of fun. I got this car in May 2011 from r3v member Bishop. This is my first car. I grew to love E30's after my high school friend, r3v member 325ix, got a 1988 325ix, so I had to have one.

    Here's the first picture I ever took of the car.

    [img]https://i.imgur.com/0LVCWzFh.jpg[/img]

    I got the car already modded with pretty much what it has now. It was already on the Ground Controls, already had the MarkD chip, the interior was swapped to the blue sport seats, and the 3.73 LSD was installed. Almost immediately after getting the car I headed off with it from Colorado to New Mexico for college. As a poor college student, all I ever did was mod it with stickers and do required maintenance, like driving to my friends house for spring break and having to do a timing belt job in their parent's driveway...

    After daily driving the E30, going from 225k to 290k, all throughout college, I finally graduated, moved back to Colorado, and got a good job. Then I bought a 1st gen Tacoma. For the past 5 years the Tacoma has been my main focus. I heavily got into offroading and camping and shit, and that's where all my money went.



    As I spent time on the Tacoma and exploring around the Western US, the E30 just sat and deteriorated. But over the past few months I worked to get it back on the road. That's where we're here today. Now that the Tacoma is more-or-less setup for what I need it to do, it's finally time for me to focus on the E30 and do fun stuff. I really want to get it out on the track next season and just have fun with E30 friends again. It's been too long.



















    Thanks for looking <3

      Love the car color and the patina on the seats. What does the sticker on the cluster say? I could only make out the booty part.

        One thing I forgot to mention is I wanted to show the many imperfections of this shitbox, the famous dink, all the missing clear coat, the bumper damage from parking it on the street for a year, the dusted interior etc. I want to make it a nice driver and I kind of like how weathered it is after almost 300k miles.

            As you least you weren't a dumb dumb and sold it like what I did with all of mine. Well deserved COTM. I don't even know if I'll be able to snag another one but I've been super tempted.

            And 100% yes, FUTURAS are FOREVER.

                      I really, really, really love this one. The patina and all of the imperfections give this car so much character. I'ts very cool and refreshing to see.

                              I always kind of regret not getting an 80 series, they're so cool
