Why do we have an E28/E34 subforum, but not E23/E32 or E24/E31?

Those are also from the E30 time period and deserve love too right? E32 is basically a slightly larger E34, but arguably more beautiful with the forward slant like the E28. I was looking at used car listings in Europe and very nice E32s are priced as high as 30,000 EUR. I guess they haven't caught on as much with US collectors, but nice E23s are often priced pretty high stateside. I think it's also interesting that the BMW models have become larger over the years. The SWB E32 7 Series is slightly smaller than a F10 5 Series. I think the E31 8 Series is special too and was actually its own model. The new 8 appears to be a rebadged 6.

The first BMW 7 Series. E23.

BMW 7 Series. The second generation E32.

The BMW 8 Series. E31.

Nobody cares about those models. J/k well kinda. I thought it was pretty generous to have an E28/E34 forum here considering there are MyE28.com and Bimmerforums, etc. Only the special E24's and E31's get the love while the vast majority are still well represented at the junkyards. As an example, there is an E30 M3 subforum here as well that gets virtually zero traffic mainly due to the fact there aren't many owners here and there is a go to E30 M3 specific site (S14.net).

At the time it was mainly due to the sheer amount of folks that drove the E28 and E34's in addition to their E30's.

I'm certainly willing to add some, but I was trying to not go full on bimmerforums either.
