    Story behind the car:

    I am the original owner of this car. I did the Dinan chip, the stereo, and a set of BBS RZ378's between 1992 and 1993. I dreamed of RS's, a Dinan suspension, and an M3 body conversion (hated the diving boards) back then, but couldn't afford them.

    I babied the car for 17,000 miles and then gave it to my dad in 1996 when I had no where to keep it.

    I finally got it back in the fall of 2007 with 37,500 miles on it and began cleaning it up and making it mine.

    RS003's are now sold, E30 M3 5-lug purchased, and new wheels in store for next year. Then H4/H1 headlights and third brake light delete. That should do for a little bit.

    1978 Chevrolet Monte Carlo
    1965 Chevrolet Corvair Monza 140hp

    Beautiful car, awesome story. Totally deserved!


      I said it once; I'll say it again. That is the best looking e30 convertible in the country. Another well deserved choice for Car of the Month.
      Congratulations to constructor.

                      I bet that Stromung sounds amazing. I've always thought they were one of the best sounding exhausts.

                      I concur that this is a fantastic choice for COTM.


                        Thank you everyone! :)


                          Fantastic! How old were you when you specced it at the dealer?
