Just a little background and a couple of old pics to show this car was never a POS.
I bought the car from Beach BMW, directly from Arnold Van Engelbrechen in 1993.
He originally sold it in 1976 to a couple of ladies who worked at U of T and lived in the Annex.
They serviced it religiously at Beach, (records for proof) and then when one died, the other traded it back in to Beach for a 1993 320 automatic.
I was living close to Beach at the time and happened to see it that same day.
The next morning before work, I went in to look at it and it was mint.
Took it for a quick drive and put $100 down on it to hold it for me til the end of the day. In that day, Arnold told me almost everyone who came in to the shop that day wanted to buy it. I drove it only one winter, and after that used it only after the salt was gone. It has had a ton of mods over the years and Michael has made it even better. Sad that he's selling it, but hope it goes to another old school fanatic.
