    I have owned this car for 8 years now. Was purchased in Nov. 1986 by my dad. It has somewhere around 500,000 miles on it and the s50 is it’s 3rd engine, transmission is original. I started to turn this car into more show then go, and slowly started getting it in shape for autocross and track duty. It's just about where I want it now even though they are never "done."

    The car runs Street Mod in SCCA and we hope to become points champion this year in the ASCC Susquehanna region. I use it for track days, cruising around on the weekends and sometimes just take it to work. Its come a long way over the years and I hope to keep it going!

    the e36 is my other car

      looks cleann


        Proof that a 24-valve E30 is just at home on the track (or dodging cones) as getting the daily-grind done. A well deserved COTM...
