    Story on the car. I first seen the car sitting in a junk yard with a slight fender bender and some little blemishes. It had a plastic bumper swap on it along with a red int. I just wanted it for parts for my 85 325e i had at the time. But the guy would not part it out.

    Fast forward about two years later. My engine was getting pretty tired in my 85 e and i was thinking about replacing the whole car. So i remembered about this car sitting in the junk yard. I called the guy and got it for $800. I even drove it out of the yard and up onto the car trailer. But the car was in need of some minor repair and tlc to get it back up to snuff.

    Once i got it road worthy, then came for the change in looks. I took the plastic bumper swap off and put the chrome euros on it along with the Zender front spoiler. Although i didnt stop there cause i kept looking for parts and buying them. I wanted to make it look like some retro 80's ride. I'm pretty sure i almost got it.

    I know its a car that some love and there is some who hate it. It is my daily driver and the car isn't perfect but its different looking car that isn't like most others out there on the road. As the car sits today i need to put some TLC back into it.

                That's wicked - I love it.

                Between this car, Crivillone's white knight and James' car from Victoria you guys make me wish I'd gone for an early chrome bumper car rather than a PB

                  Thanks guys. I just wish it still looked like the way it does in those pictures. I almost hate to sell it, cause i know i can bring it back to look like that again.

                    great first car, maybe this way he wont sell it ;)

                    so will you pick yourself or will people pm you the info about their cars?

                    Need Illustration or Design work?


                      Great looking car! The contrast of interior/exterior is awesome!

                      If there is only one thing I would change if it was my car is to go wider tires ;)

                      OEM v8 manual chip or dme -


                        LOL, my buddys keep asking me, "do you really want to sell that?" I know in the back of my mind i shouldn't.

                        But i do believe the votes will be by staff only (don't worry, we all have good taste. Although some people question mine!) And no i did not vote for my car to be first. And whoever gets it for that month i'm sure they'll get a PM about it. I'm sure the other mods and josh and James will chime in on how it will all work.

                            I love this car! it is absolutely gorgeous and a perfect pick to start off the thread!


                              Awesome! Thank you mods for taking the idea and making it a reality. I personally think this is good enough, a sticky that is updated each month is perfect. I also agree mods will make the decisions. I believe you guys will choose apropriately and plus it makes for spontaniousness!

                              Jason C. VERY cool car. I love how you kept with a theme and stuck with it. It's very hard to find an e30 with a complete Kamei kit. You did a real nice job on color co-ordination it seems like too. The red pinstripe contrasts the crimson interior, the front end fogs and ellipsoids go with the smoked turn indicators. I love it.
