      As is mine. Not sure if I'll ever start on it. Been in my family since it was almost new and been sitting for 40+ years. Don't think I could ever let it go. Same goes for the '49 Olds coupe sitting next to it.

          Hell is a project shell.

          I should try and find some work-trades with a shop to do the swap. Will fly drone for M20B25.

            How much have you guys spent on your e30's (only including parts on the car) I'm roughly 11.5k into mine. And that's not counting the m50 or the pile of parts I'm collecting for the swap, that's just as the car sat before the teardown.

            I honestly only expected to be around 5k but shit just kept adding up and I've gotten a lot of great deals (like the $350 euro donor)

                              Well...for the condition it's in...


                              I'm pretty sure I'm under 10k after almost 6 years of ownership, including purchase price.

                                $7k for 318is from a stealership. Everyone is jumping in the E30 train. Time to invest in one that is stock and put it away for a decade.
