Quote from: Steve Weldon on June 05, 2013, 11:36:11 pmAn Iphone pic my sister took of my son and his new car, a 1991 BMW 328is (s I'm told is for lightweight sport version) mechanically and outside restored, we only have o finish the interior. I''m not sure what makes a kid desire an old 150hp car when there are plenty of much more powerful V8's in the same or cheaper price category. He's grinning ear to ear our entire drive back (we flew out from Illinois to LA to get a rust free version) and I must say it's smooth and runs very well. So far were getting 31-33mpg.. not sure if that' good for this car. The police are attracted to this car like white on rice.. so far I've been issued 2 warnings and him 3.. No tickets yet.

Quote from: Rob C on June 06, 2013, 05:03:47 amIt's a reversed manifestation of the American Dream, Steve: you guys fancy European rust and I drool over the idea of a '59 Coupe de Ville.Beware the rear suspension of that Beemer; I'm told it's not the more stable sort found on later models... in other words, you can lose the tail quite easily, especially if it rains. Or so they say. Either way, take care, both of you. But it certainly looks very cool.However, it isn't only BMW: I know a lawyer who sold a 911 because it was impossible in the wet. My bro'n'lo and his wife are both Merc fans - they have now dumped her SLK for a new A-Class because neither his Brabus nor her sports job were any good on ice or snow and the daughter wanted her FWD Corsa back! They should have learned to drive.Thank goodness relative poverty has made me careful and I have a Fiesta. (Well, that's my face-saving story and I better stick to it.);-)Rob C
Quote from: Riaan van Wyk on June 06, 2013, 02:16:37 pmSteve, we only got the 328 motor in the later E36, not the E30 as pictured. BUT, we had a homegrown 155 kw 325iS called the "Shadowline" and later a homegrown 333i. I used to drool ( and still do) over a henna red one that lived in my street. That straight six's howl sends shivers down one's spine when at full tilt...http://www.alpina-archive.com/?page_id=7678http://www.alpina-archive.com/?page_id=7671&nmt=333i
Quote from: Steve Weldon on June 07, 2013, 06:17:22 pm1. We just like cars. All of them. We just returned home after a 2300 mile return trip and the car ran like a top the entire time. It also revealed it's personality in the form of a few rough edges we'll sort out as time goes on.2. I've heard of this.. Hopefully with the new springs, shocks, poly bushings, and lowering.. it will be a better performer. The guy even added an M3 steering rack. It handles somewhere between a car and a go kart.. 3. After this trip I hope you don't mind sliding over and sharing your seat with me.
