Default New winter beater

Found a killer deal I just couldn't resist and always wanted a E30. Something about simpler, lighter, older cars that I can't resist. And, yes it needs some work, like removing that horrid tint job in the back.

isn't there a rule somewhere on this forum about having to reveal the price if you mention the words "killer deal"? or "couldn't resist"?

And is that really a winter or beater? or another turbo project?

Why? Wouldn't more doors just add weight? His sig says he's already got a 4 door for hauling.

1) Let's just say solid mechanicals, mod cosmetic flaws for less than a set of AFCOs.

2) I guess you got me on that one. I'm sure I'll get to some power mods after the miatas are all finished.

That there is some "club spec" material for sure. I'd rock that winter or not.

because his high school friends who can squeeze in behind seats are probably all grows up now.

and i doubt the weight difference is significant. for a winter beater.

oh and I bet some 15x9 6ULs would look very delicious on that. can you stretch snow tires?
