HEY IT'S AN AVALON!!! lol it's gonna be ballon too. As for the E30 I started my work on it again but sadly more disassembling than putting together. Im just trying to take care of everything and not have to do anything again. Plus I only get a day off here and there so I have to lug all my tools around when I want to work on it so if I do t plan ahead I'm screwed. And lastly I think I can see the light at the end of the tunnel where this car will be scrapped soon, and my quest for another will begin.

My car is far from gone and it's not going anywhere! Well it's not going anywhere at the moment because it's got no wheels, brakes, or suspension... I did unseize two out of the four seized rotor locating screws today but when I removed one rear rotor I found out that I had no emergency brake. Not that it didn't work, it wasn't there at all!

But once it's finished then I'm definitely not selling it! Well unless I find a rust free early model 318i in which case I'll swap everything over, part out what's left and scrap my car...

On second thought it's really not looking good for E30's afterall

hey now, I won't be leaving the e30 scene anytime soon. Just need to find some time to lug the motor back out, and either rebuild or buy another long block. Don't worry though, soon enough, sr20 e30 will be back, lower, wider, and with more boost

Ahhh, e30's. Love them to hate them. I miss mine Alpwite one

O man, I remember all the Original Member e30 gatherings. That shit was EPIC!!!

Mystikal, Zimmie and I had the same identical e30 in 3 different colours. LOL

This is the year. I know I have said this before. But, this is the year. I have a shop and as such have run out of excuses.

Drive mine 365 days a year. No plans on letting it die any time soon. Although my beastly dog needs something that has AC for summer. So I may get a second car... 540i or M5... not sure yet.

Speaking of which. I should take a vacation and drive to Mexico. Then get bodywork and a paint job done on the cheap while our dollar is strong
