I think i may have a small problem....

Okay i have bought 3 cars in the last couple of months...One particular one to flip but the others, who knows.

This is my latest acquisition. I've always wanted one and this one was too good of a deal to pass on.

1987 e30 4dr blk/blk


Ran rough but just needs a tune up. Theres a good amount of rust but we deal with datsun's so we already know what to do.

Few more pics from when i went to pick it up.




I know i told myself no more bmw's but again couldn't pass it out.

Plans are to get it running well, fix the rust, euro bumpers, wheels and drop.

I'm not sure how far their directory goes back, but realoem.com is a great source for tracking down part numbers for BMWs both domestic and euro. Easy site to navigate and can help a bunch with hard to find OEM pieces.

also hit up orchid euro. they mainly deal with vw parts but if you hit them up they go to England and europe quite often they might be able to snag some euro bits for you...

Awesome thanks guys....i'll look into parts for this thing. Got it running pretty well but was having issues with the idle...it gets stuck around 1500rpm at times. Want to take the tb apart and clean it.

Springs and struts installed. I'm pretty pleased with the front but the rear is still a little high...kinda of a raked look but still better than 4x4.

Next up...a tune up

Thanks guys. Love old cars. However this may be sold by the end of the week which isn't necessarily a bad thing as I'll be making a decent profit.
