    Story behind the car:

    I bought my car almost 4 years ago back in December of 2007. Having recently graduated from college, I made up my mind that if I was ever going to build an e30 I would love, the time would be now; before the more important things in life took over. Well, what was supposed to be a stock late model e30 with a suspension, wheels, and a new interior, turned into what you see today. My philosophy with my e30 has been to keep it OEM+ and it would end up being a car I can “grow old” with. A car I can still own 20 or 30 years down the line, and not be thrown back by a reflection of my own adolescents. I didn't want this to be like an old clothing style, where I look at it and say “what was I thinking?” All in all, I hope that I have stayed true to my “philosophy.” I guess time will tell.
