I love that show! I've seen all but the final episode. Can't find it on YT. Prolly gonna order the DVD set. I love everything I've seen so far that Paul Fenech has been involved with. The movie Fat Pizza brought back tons of memories of my pizza delivery days.

So found another random e30 in a random YT vid. Not nearly as cool as in Housos, but here goes @0:55

Saw this 5 speed 325i vert in the Bronx today. The driver said they picked it up for $50 or $100. They refuse to sell the car whole, but there's a lot of good parts there. Tan leather sport seats, blah blah blah.

It was getting towed to Aalba Auto Salvage at 151 Woodward Ave, Ridgewood, NY 11385. Their number is 718-386-3953.

WTF attachments are not working! I'll try again later if I remember.

Last night I saw a Baur convertible on City Island. Never seen one in person before. Didn't have time to whip out my phone to take a picture, I was busy setting up to load 2 cars on my flatbed.

The e30 was driving down the main strip with the top off. I was towing a wrecked Mazda 3 and a Civic. Saw a few more e30's driving around Brooklyn and Queens today. None close enough to get pics of though. I did get pictures of the Chevy Traverse that smacked into the NJ Turnpike toll booth at 75mph last week. I brought it back to Hertz today. That thing was bloody!

Saw a BUNCH of e30's up in Jefferson Valley, NY today, including a pretty beat looking white m3 shell. Sadly no pics. They were all on private property.

Should um... help that M3 by taking it.

Though NY has lots of rust issues right? Salty winter time?

Don't know what their winters there are normally. This most recent storm they must have gotten off easy. There was little to no snow anywhere yesterday. I barely even saw any plow piles in parking lots. Where my shop is still has snow everywhere. Well, we DID get 30something inches. You're probably right about the salty winters there though. I SO wish I could have grabbed that m3. I already had 2 cars loaded up on my truck though.

Have you noticed the crackheads on Craigslist lately with M3s and even regular e30s? There's an M3 in my area with about 16 postings on CL for $45,000. 2 years ago I could have gotten one with half the miles he has for half that price. Everyone on CL is artificially inflating the prices. They're not worth that much yet! The cheapest vert lately is over $5000! Saw one on CL yesterday completely wrecked for $1000.
