Just bought an e30!!!

Well i finally found a good shell for my next project. actually it is a moving, running car but i'm going to drop my 3.5l M30 in it as soon as i can!! should make for a quick little car. My plans are for subtle, tasteful modification. nothing too huge on the aesthetics. Open to wheel ideas though cause they need to be changed quick!

tell me what you think
its a 1985 BMW 325 Coupe Alpinweiss.

here are the for sale pics of it. When i get it home tomorrow i'll wash it and get some better ones up for ya. its way dirty right now but udnerneath the paint looks ok. The body was my priority so paint and other stuff are a bonus if they're good.







can't wait to get it rollin the way it is supposed to

DOWN AND OUT!

QFT

no rust on the body at all.
the five was put into a wall due to bald rear tires and me being forgetful. fishtailed twice and towards the end of the second slide the car went into understeer and i ran out of room and into a support beam for an overpass. no injuries and no other cars involved thank god. but from the wreck i will be taking seats, exhaust, engine, trans, rear diff, and possibly the brakes if i can make them work somehow...

if i can convert to 5 lug my wheels will move too.

Congrats Devin. I might be able to take those wheels from your e34 off your hands. Let me know, if the passenger front is not bent. You will have a quick car for sure.

"WU", just out of curiousity - how fast were you going before the "abrupt assualt" on the 5er's front end?
