        Not Portland (is there a general Oregon thread?)

        Rattle can black early model, with wavy rubber around painted black diving boards. Cheapo cylinder shaped muffler that didn't look secured to the straps. West Salem, near the Eola safeway. Missing the door bump trim and had a Hoonigan sticker in the rear window. Young guy with lots of hair shoved under a baseball cap. Looked about right to me.

        Also, last week when working in Medford, a nicely kept late model red e30 passed me between the North and South Medford exits on I-5 a half a dozen times. I think I saw it parked near Dicks / REI on the NW side of town as well.

          Ok, who's got the Red early coupe with black painted bottlecaps and WA plates? Seen at the Precision Castparts parking lot..

                  Spotted another. Heading towards 205 on HWY 213 in OC. Hard to see as you were ahead in traffic. Gray with stickers on the upper driver side rear window. Turned from Glen Oak onto 213.

                          Rad. You'll probably see my Schwarz '88 running around out there from time to time. Hoping to have the 5 speed and suspension finished up in a few weeks.

                            thats sweet. there are definitely a small number but consistent number of LO e30s around, especially up on the mountain. any day my stromung will arrive and then itll be the big purchase of a 100% suspension overhaul.

                              Yeah, there isn't a whole lot of them in the area anymore. I rarely see them rolling around when I'm out there. I think yours was the first one I've seen in a while.

                                There's a couple in the neighborhood off Kruse way. When I was working over there, and would go running at lunch, I'd see a few. There was someone near the Haggens that had two usually parked in front of their house.
