    Simon, I agree with that tip top shape idea.

    I think my car looks really nice, but isn't nice enough to care too much about. I def beat the shit out of my car and it looks good doing it. I notice a lot of people with the big project cars are just perpetually working on them and never driving them. Maybe that's the fun part for others, but every weekend I try and take my car out for a nice drive.

    I've made little changes, nothing of interest really. Nothing the audience that COTM would find interesting.

    I have two cats though that are pretty cool
    and this attitude is why theres been a Hot Wheels shitbox up there for over a month...

    I'm not familiar with dyno brands and their comparative readouts

    This guy was hitting 280 consistently! Honestly, that's a rad setup for the money

    My roof was supposed to get done today and they wanted to put a dumpster in the driveway, so that's the only reason I moved it out onto the street after parking it sometime around last August.
    Still no insurance on it, only emailed to re-add coverage yesterday afternoon.
    There's a massive chunk of bondo hanging off the trunk pocket and some holes that aren't going to pass inspection, so I need to get that dealt with at a minimum before I can even take photos.

    Edit: I know this car is never going to be in tip-top shape, but I'd love to have the panels somewhat in the right shape, not bloated/deformed with rust. I don't even care about panel-to-panel paint matching, just would like it to not be the botched attempt it is now lol

    And apparently 7 minutes after requesting insurance to be added, I was sent the documents and a separate reply. Gmail just doesn't push notifications to my phone.

    The biggest mistake people make (and you can see it here) is that people want their cars to be in tip-top shape, but that pretty much never happens and usually when it does they are 'done' with it and want to sell... I had a few where I had been waiting and waiting and when they finally deemed it worthy they had decided to sell. So basically the pics were their advertisements of the car on its way out...

    If you've owned it a while, have made changes, shared those changes... thats all I really care about.

    E30s are shitboxes 99% of the time

    Makes sense, we can always make a competing Cat of the Meownth thread...

    I have one as well, just not sure what to do with it yet haha. MS41 has been good to me so far. The effort to switch still outweighs the benefit of a standalone.

    Honestly my car has never been in worse shape aesthetically. I've been asking around the local guys for someone who does very good quality metal work (as I am sans garage) but the go-to guy retired and they haven't found anyone who can match the quality yet. I have some fender bottoms/floor pieces from valcas, a slightly better trunk pocket from a parts car, and clean sunroof/bumper to eventually go on

    My car isn't cool enough. It's just a boring e30

    Maybe start recruiting people from FB. Maybe it will help bring some people over?

    MrBurgundy or roguetoaster as the only regular memberswho haven’t been featured yet, want a feature? Gotta act quick... my April fools joke has completely backfired and GD hot wheels had been stuck up there for too long lol
