She looks damn good for a car with that many miles on it. Any mods or plans for her?

i'm in wildwood, but u could of seen me anywhere from here to timbuctoo. where u at?

as for mods, i'm just leaving her stock with the exception of the 3.25lsd and the chip. i'm an old head and am really just loving the turn key and go ability of this little eta. if i where to start fooling around, i would loose my oh so pressious 28+mpg and start getting those anoying gremlins i read so much about. in the 3.5 years i've had her there hasen't been a day when she was not available to me with the exception of general drivway maintenance.

Wildwood is one of the few places in Jersey that I've never been to. I'm up in Union county, but I drive my flatbed all over NJ, NY, CT, PA, and sometimes MD and VA.

the 3.25 lsd and the chip are really the only performance upgrades for the eta from what i understand. and i might add, they really did wake her up.

Only thing I'd change on this car cosmetically, is to add a set of euro bumpers. Love a stock e30

Haha yeah they do. I was just thinking euro metal bumpers compared to US plastics, as far as for swapping on an early model US car.
