bump for a sick car ! :)

01-21-2011, 03:35 PM
It's a shame you're selling it Gerry! (It's Mike from Kingston Nissan)

I only saw it in the trailer, but if I had the money, i'd swipe this one up!
It looks just as good in person as it does in the pictures.

Good choice of colour! *th-up* And good luck!

01-21-2011, 03:38 PM
thanks Mike. the bank has lots of money they love to give people LOL.

01-21-2011, 04:19 PM
Haha. I've got enough debt because of mine! I'll eventually get around to having you put an exhaust on mine!

01-22-2011, 07:46 AM
BUMP. need money for non ohip medical treatment.............

01-25-2011, 02:05 PM
gotta be someone in the market for an e30?...........

01-25-2011, 02:21 PM
Don't get me wrong I think everything about the car is excellent. It really is too bad you need to sell. Bottom line is 7k is still a lot of coin for a body modified car. I really like the fact that you spent the proper time defending it against rust.

One primary thing to consider is that most guys on here looking for an older e30 are getting into the game because they want to get a cheaper car and put the effort in themselves, as you did. Then there are the guys who might spring nearly 7k if it was bone stock, original paint, low km and never driven in snow.

I'd say your best bet is on someone looking for a good base to build a turbo/swap project car, being that the groundwork is done already.

Best of luck with this one, and I'd consider putting an offer if I was in the market for a second car, I have my hands full with the one I have! :)

This is exactly where I fit in.

I love the work that was put into the body. It sounds like a car that was done right. However the car has already been upgraded and there isn't much left to do.

Of course everything could be changed, there are neverending possibilities, but I couldn't pay that price only to remove everything... I would rather buy the car stripped for less money and build it myself.

gotta be someone in the market for an e30?...........

I'd buy this in a heartbeat, but I got financially SMOKED in the last half of 2010 ($6000 for an unexpected engine swap, then $8800 for a new roof on my house, 2 months before Christmas). I need a second car badly, but just can't afford it. :mad:

01-26-2011, 09:17 PM
sorry to hear that!! i've spent a huge amount on my house last year......and im in the same boat with medical reasons that needs funding.

good luck

01-26-2011, 11:50 PM
Damn man, I'm lucky compared to you then. *sad* GLWS!! It's a beauty. Got any shots of the interior?

01-27-2011, 04:37 PM
I don't know if you're getting any bites, but if you're in need of the money, what about parting it out? I know you'd probably rather sell it as a whole (less work and a shame to seperate it all) but you might be able to get money quicker by parting it out! Sell the shell (as people have said, it would be an awesome base for an engine swap) and then everything else.
Just throwing idea's out there! I'm sure you'd get buyers for the various parts...

01-27-2011, 08:05 PM
id rather sell off a kidney then part it out. LOL thanks for the ideas tho. Im not that desperate yet.....treatments start this friday and go for 40 weeks.......so probley after the 20 week mark ill be ready to figure out what i have to do.

thanks everyone.

01-28-2011, 04:34 PM
What do you want for a kidney? Not a bad idea to have a spare! *drink* :D

I guess you're starting treatment today! Good luck Gerry!

01-29-2011, 03:52 PM
Nice car.. any interior pics?

02-03-2011, 02:19 PM

spring is in the air...Bump. e30 needs a great home.....dont want to sell but have to for medical reasons :(

04-13-2011, 08:36 PM
bump........summer is a coming. she still needs good home.

04-15-2011, 08:44 PM
okay guys, what is someone willing to pay for this? starting to open up to reasonable offers. give me some #'s!

04-16-2011, 09:19 AM
I still think you should do the engine swap and sell me the engine! *th-up*

04-18-2011, 08:55 AM
sorry mike, no time or money to pull that off........i have the M30 tho if you wanna make me an offer on it alone?

04-18-2011, 09:57 AM
Well I don't really want to swap right now (no time for that either)! I want to get mine running right....and with no time like yourself it's easier if I just get an engine that runs right and steal all the parts! :P
And if I do swap, I want to drop an sr20det in it...

Good luck with your sale though! And keep me in mind just incase!!! *th-up*

04-18-2011, 10:59 AM
that will be slick, may get hated on a bit by the hardcore germans but itll be fast.

04-18-2011, 01:20 PM
Well the guys here will hate me a bit less for asking them to work on a Nissan engine instead of a BMW engine! It's easier for me to get parts for...I have guys here that know something about it...and it's reliable! I could even have you give it a nice 350z blue paint job! :P
But I want to get to 500000 km's first, so i've got a bit of time!

04-20-2011, 04:15 PM
And if I do swap, I want to drop an sr20det in it...

If youre gonna go non-BMW might as well just go with a small block chev :D

bump for beautiful car

04-21-2011, 07:29 AM
Haha...Me + Chev? No thanks!

The other swap I was thinking about (which would require me to win the lottery, but I'm still allowed to dream right?) was dropping the 5.6L from a Titan into the little beast and buying an adaptor that Jim Wolfe Technology is producing to mount a 6-speed manual tranny from the 350z/G35 to it! Thoughts? :P

04-21-2011, 08:25 AM
Oh and I forgot to mention Stillen bolt-on Supercharger! ;)

Sorry for stealing your thread there Gerry!
At least it's staying at the top!

This thing needs to sell because it's one clean and sexy car! :)

05-02-2011, 08:34 PM
