Hi there, I'm brand new here. I'm Palu from Olympia WA. I was given an "as is" 1988 325 (I'm pretty sure its the super eta 2.7) back in July or so this year. Hardly knew the person. Just took a chance that it could be a total money pit. I had a friend of mine do some shade-tree work on the car and promptly took it on a good road trip down to San Francisco. The car has about 213k on it and i'm really thankful it didn't do anything bad on the way down or back. I have absolutely no service records for it so... guess i'm lucky. Anyway, i'm tackling the timing belt/water pump/v-belts January 1st (next week) 'cause for all I know its way past overdue . Anyway, wish me luck. I look forward to meeting and chatting with you all in the future. Cheers, Palu.
