I have some of this summer and will be aquiring more.

If you have any input or advice let me know!


Please suggest some seats that would be nice for the track and street, that tilt forward to still use the rear seats.
Also if you know any nice clean doors or sunroofs, please let me know.

Picture time!

You've Picked up a pretty clean E30, Almost cleaner than mine when I bought it.

E30 is a very good car to have, and it's really reliable. I have owned 3 E30's in my past.

Good Car's!

ummm...that isn't pretty clean...needs doors,fenders probably license plate light tail panel and God only knows what is hiding. A clean e30 is one where there is minimal rust to start with hopefully no major accident history. it will need a couple grand worth of work to bring it back easily..

You're planning to weld up all that? Man unless it's a learning project you'll probably be better off selling that and finding one without holes for a grand or two more... Just IMO of course but ive dealt with less rust than that and it's still a huge pain

The body of the car can be welded. I'd pull out all the carpet, and check the floors and jack points. I'm sure you'll be busy.

I've never seen an e30 door that bad before.

I think it's great you found a project car. Hope you get the max enjoyment from it. You should definitely post pics of your progress.

As everything regarding cars is a matter of personal taste and opinion, it's not my cup of tea, though... I would have gotten a car in better shape.

Very few know what "clean, mint, or rust free" means now a days. I think people just say these words of phrases to make themselves feel better about buying a parts car.

Speaking of your parts car John, I've got dibs on your "front" is lip, and your... uh, hmm... no other good parts on sedans.
