yes he did. hey FFD any chance you would find that video of 3 dudes ghost riding a delorean. i remember you posting it on streetfire before. man i thought it was funny as hell.

I didnt have one, 96impalaSS did. But he sold it to pay for his GTO. I was one of the people looking to buy it from him, but he needed $20k cash, and I didnt have it.


IIRC that ghost riding .gif was from some low budget rap video. The owner of the car was contacted through DMCtalk.com (delorean owners forum) and was paid $1000 for those toolbags to use it for the afternoon.

I'm thinking about making the 6 hour drive to see this .  .  .



It's a '99 M3 with 42k miles that's within the budget.  And I love the color combination .  .  .

E36 are the softest of M3 in my opinion - for you thats a good thing. they ride with much more of a luxury feel than their predecessors, but by modern standards, wont feel dated. scuttle shake on one of the M3 convertibles i drove not too long ago felt somewhat pronounced. Now i love me a convertible, but it was enough scuttle shake for me to decide to not ever get an e36 convertible. Just offering my 2 cents.

at least the body seems to be in superb condition though, but interiors on those wear somewhat (altho each car will be different), so maybe check out some more high-res pictures before your trek. specifically the door grab handle. Otherwise from what i see, it looks great.

i cant believe im saying this, but i would say keep looking.

Here I am to pee in the collective cheerios as well.

The e36 has been known for serious interior quality issues. Nothing major, just roof panels coming loose, door panels, door handles, center compartment components, etc .... All of this stuff is cosmetic in nature. But, me being a perfectionist, it irritates the hell out of me. Ask for some good hi res photos of the interior, ESPECIALLY the rear seats. Verts/top down/left-in-the-sun = dried and cracked leather.

I saw this in my local cars.com flyer this morning and checked it out online. Too bad the whackjob can spring for a ferrari but not a cell phone with a camera AT LEAST.

I think there needs to be a company/conglomeration or somehting made that sets out ppeople to find cars like this (like how i found the old BMW 1800) and just buy them up so they dont go to waste.

Thanks for the info on the e36 problem areas.  I'll do some more research before/if I make the journey.  I really love that paint/top color combination.  The M3, even with the automatic, should provide enough oomph to meet my requirements.  The softer ride would work better for our driving habits.  

I love the Mondial and the 308.  Years ago, I got to drive a 308 around the parking lot of a complex of buildings.  Even without getting on the highway, it was a deep religious experience.  Both cars are "affordable" in the Ferrari sense, (I haven't looked into parts suppliers or prices yet, but I should probably prepare for the worst    ).

Well, as long as we're dreaming, I think this is relatively cheap considering the condition and what they cost new, (something like $223,000) .  .  .

A beautiful car .  .  .

I should qualify that I have never owned one. However, there are a shitte tonne of them in BMWCCA. The stories are pervasive. That said, no one it seems is ever in a hurry to sell them. The parts are easy enough to find. One of my neighbors owns a used car lot in which he stocks a lot of nice eurpean cars. Once in a while he needs some parts and asks me to help him out. Last summer he had a car similar to the one you are looking at that had the trashed rear seats due to cracking and fading. He also needed a new center console. I was able to find them pretty quick and the price wasnt that bad either. Do have a look because I am sure when you drive it you'll be hooked.
