        Seems like a fairly accurate vehicle considering he lives in San Fran now. Go cruise through the Castro, lol.

I wouldn't sell it for that little since I've got a bit of cash in it, but if I could move it for $6-7k more than I paid, what sort of car could I get. And limiting myself to convertibles that are somewhat sporty, it's a short list. And since getting the TR I've missed being able to fill up the car and take people out, I sold the 900 before I really had friends down here to utilize a 4 seat vert.

                I recommend a Saab 900 turbo convertible. Lol.

                    Yes.. do you really want a loose license plate flying around your car during an accident or sudden braking, etc.?

                    no arguing here. I was very involved with the last No Front Plate initiative in Washington state and am quite familiar with the related RCW's, and the organizations/groups/government entities who are against the removal of a front plate requirement in Washington. I don't see what this has to do with the discussion here though ;)

                    the laws refer to the front plate being at the front of the car, and not too close to the ground. It can be off-center.


                    and yes, cutting up your plate, modifying it in any way, or covering it up so any lettering is blocked, is illegal.


                    Now.. whether a cop decides to pull you over for any of this at all is up to the individual. It's mostly used as an excuse to ask you other questions.. but every now and then you get someone whose sole mission in life is ticket people for not running a front plate.




                    meh.. sorry for bringing back the old topic

                      Too cold and im too old for this shit.
                      Anyone have an old heater valve laying around?
                      Stealership wants $200+ for one. :/

                          I'm thinking of not painting my car hennarot and going Sahara beige, I just don't think cardinal would look good with henna. I'm starting to think it's more rare than hennarot I can't find any pics online except my old 318, and one other eurocar.

                            There is a reason Sahara beige is rare

                                I'm not sure what all of those are but I think a few are metallic and I don't want any metallic,i plan on shooting it myself and being a first paint job I want something that's going to make my fuck ups less noticeable. I really like the Sahara my second e30 was that color, granted I was 17, paid 200 dollars for the pile but I liked the color
