Woot!

As I was leaving Berlin Klassik I saw some guys across the street taking pictures so I'm happy I got to see it.

The show wasn't bad but I got there pretty late. It looks like a lot of cars were already gone when I got there.

Mechanically the car is fine. Everything works (that I care about) and suspension and brakes are basically brand new. Steering rack, tires, control arms, and CAB's are new too. I do need new sway bar bushings so I could get an upgraded sway bar kit but that's not really a big deal. And my shifter is sloppier then [insert joke here] but again correcting that is a weekend project at best.

The body on the car is pretty good too. There are typical dings and scratches. Some areas have been repainted (poorly) but it looks good from 10 feet. I checked my floors when I dyed my carpet a few weeks ago and there is no rust at all. Trunk is solid too. So aside from a really nice paint job (which I can't afford) and correcting all of the issues with the body there isn't much to do.

So what would you do if you were in my position? Is there something I should be considering that I'm missing?

So what your saying is your car will pass tech?

After the E30 cruise this weekend my car was totally filthy. The weather was pretty nice yesterday so I gave it wash and took some fall pictures. Probably the last bath before it's put away...











And the before...
