    It's all about having the years of experience to decide where and when it's a good idea to go fast.

    One thing that took me a while to realize is that unless you're on the highway, you're not going to get to your destination significantly faster by speeding.

      I'm torn between a black e30 and a red e30. Both late models. Both manuals. Basically only coming down to color. I pretty much have my mind made up. So what's your favorite color, red or black?

          red. black paint is never worth the hassle.

            all great advice in here. riding the 50cc scooter the last 6 months definitely has helped me calm down as a driver - it feels weird passing people in town sometimes because the scooter has no power and you never really get to do that LOL. I love driving e30s and acing my downshifts and everything, but because of the way I view the car sometimes it feels like a game - and ITS NOT obviously. I do agree calming down behind the wheel does come with age - and driving a hot sports car when youre young doesnt help much.

            Im not in a hurry really to be driving again, I just am a little sad I have two red e30s that run good and I cant legally drive them. I sneak them out late at night often to just drive the backroads but thats about it. also and its winter time and scooting around sucks

            been thinking about picking up a minitruck or some 80s japanese beater automatic... but I dont need 3 cars LOL

              Then paint it Bronzit. Just to cheese off Austin. :)

                My friend has an 80s Mazda minitruck, you should buy it from him. Its just shitty enough that youll like it.

                  Those will run forever too. In fact, I think if you take care of them, they'll die. They like to be used hard.

                    Or sometimes it doesn't.


                    I went through a bad spell when I was younger. Driving $300 sh*tboxes with no insurance and trip permits in the back window I had printed out on my old PC. Had no money, and thought I could skirt the system to get by.. Eventually (after having my license suspended) I got my act together and spent a year just riding my bike to and from work.

                    That year, I did a hard reset of my life and worked toward paying off debts, keeping expenses down, and just trying to live cheap and work two jobs.


                    Point of the story. Don't be in a hurry to get back out there on the street. If your car's are stored safely, and you have transportation, just give yourself time to really look at where you are heading with your driving. Find a hobby outside of cars and focus on that for a year or two. Then come back to it with a fresh outlook. Trust me, it helps.. If you are too antsy to get in the car, then you are not ready. It should just be a "cool, I can take the car out for a leisurely trip."

                    You can choose to take or ignore my advice, but like I said, I have been down that road..
                    This sounds familiar. I did something really similar - add in skipping out on a court date and stealing a license plate to stay on the road. No bueno.

                    Last of the poorly chosen driving decisions dropped off 2 years ago, clean record since.

                    But, something I realized moving across the country - you may have better luck getting a license in another state. If you don't report your old DL#, there's not really much that can tie you to that old record.

                      That could very well be. I don't think Oregon DMV was ever aware of some of my antic when I lived in Phoenix AZ for a short time in the mid 90's. One of those included be clocked doing 85 in a 30..

                            Ugh I miss driving my e30 so badly. Progress has been slow over the last month. I have a trunklid on the way finally, though, so I'm at least happy about that.

                              Black! I'm not a fan of red cars; although, i would seriously consider a weinrot E30.

                                When I applied for my Washington insurance under my new Washington ID, nothing from my NC history showed up, including a very recent accident (no fault). The DMV tracks it by DL#, so my social only returned credit history and related items.
