    Story behind the car: Had an E30 in college, really wanted to get back into one after bouncing around bit (S13, E36, etc). I really did too much on my last E30, so I wanted to take it easy on this one. Found this up in PA on R3v. Flew up, shook his hand, drove it 8 hours home without issues. I'm the third owner, first owner was an Army Officer who did european delivery. His son drove it through the early 90's, and the PO bought it from them around 2000. PO was a local SCCA officer who kept the car until I bought it in 2014. I'm trying to keep everything reversible should I want to put the car back to stock in the future. Started talking to Rama @RHD about his throttles a few years back, and was able to give him feedback as the first airbox install for his M20 kits. Future includes a 3.1 stroker and revised suspension as the Pro-Kit's are a bit soft, and the car needs swaybars/bushings. Hoping to be able to hold onto the car for a decade as both previous owners did!

                I love the tach too, but then again I love pretty much everything about this car.

                            This is probably the 10th time I've come back to look at this car. I'm planning on doing an ITB stroker m20 soon, so this is inspiring the shit out of me. :up:

                              you should check out his build thread... hmm maybe I should start posting those in here too since a solid build thread is what usually gets me to select you.
