View Full Version : Leaving the E30 Nation-Sort Of...

03-28-2012, 12:00 AM
Hi Everyone,

It looks as though I am (kinda) leaving the E30 world as I've put a down payment on a new (old) car. I'm giving my E30 to a friend so that I can still look at it, drive it, and (probably) even work on it! My E30 has been an awesome car, I've enjoyed every ride and all that I've learned working on it.

I've picked up a really nice (ie-no body work needed!) 1978 Porsche 911 Targa for a 40th birthday present, I'll probably bring it to some of the cruises to see everyone anyway.

Check out the pic...

Ha! New Beetle, I love it, Rudy!! Thanks for putting that thought into my mind! John, I may well be back, I'd like to bring my friend and the old E30 to at least 1 autocross...

Brent, you're paving the same path I'll likely be following for my 40th aswell.

8 years to go!

Brent! Where have you been?!?
Definitely bring your friend to auto-x... heck you should auto-x your Porsche!

Brent, are you holding out on us? Did you win the lottery? Are you sure that house isn't yours?

Congrats on the almost 'mid-life' crisis purchase, hehe just kidding!
Enjoy it, but say goodbye to cheap parts!

That thing is beautiful! I love the delicate front end on these, how the lights are shaped up like a hill.

Slow in, fast out. Just remember that. Nice ride Brent, I'll see you in the Porsche club one day with my 993 Twin Turbo, once I figure out a way to get in to.

Expecting to see you at auto-x now, and not just showing up, you've gotta run what you brung.*th-up*
