White 87 vert

Postby 87e30 » Thu Jun 02, 2016 12:31 pm

Not my car. I got flagged down on my way home from work yesterday by a guy selling the white 87 vert in his driveway. He's asking $3000. The body is pretty solid. Very little visible rust around the normal places. Red leather sports seats. The tabs on the fuse box aren't cracked off! Could use a new plastic rear window (it's cloudy). Car has 240,xxx miles. Sticker under the hood shows timing belt was replaced at 208,000 back in April 2002! He told me the lady he got it from had it in her garage for the past 12 years. He put a new battery and some fresh gas in it and has been driving it since. He wanted me to hear it running, but I don't think I trust a 14 year old timing belt. VIN decoder shows the following options:

Seriously though. I was driving home a way I don't normally go because some idiot didn't know how to use a stop sign, and slowed down to admire his neighbor's black 87 coupe. The guy was standing on his porch waving his arms at me. I turned down my music and asked him if the black one was his, but he said no, he had the white convertible in the driveway. I can't believe how many e30's are popping up in my neighborhood! I know where there are at least 7 of them in less than a square mile. That's not including any of mine.

I also spoke with the guy with the bronzit 87 325i with the carbon fiber hood today. He decided he wants to fix it up and throw it on CL for $4000. I told him in my opinion it's not worth anywhere near that, but I'm sure someone on CL will give him what he's asking.

I wish I had the space and money for the vert. I'd try to talk him down a little and buy it for myself. My second car ever was an 86 LeBaron turbo convertible. Great times were had in that car! It was really a shitbox, but the most fun shitbox ever put on wheels. There was so many holes in the roof that I left it down during thunderstorms and drove around just enjoying it.

You don't need more cars man.

But sou sound like me. Some dude keeps lighting up my phone to buy him this 2002 my friend has, fix it, then sell it to him. He just walked up to me one day when I was working on a car. Thanks guy...

not a bad deal if the top is solid and functional. I just saw one locally with horrid two tone paint job, bad roof, and auto for $3500. I've thought about picking up a vert for a daily for some time. I miss having a convertible.

You should totally buy this vert that this guy I know has, fix it up, then sell it to me at a loss next year. lol

But seriously, if you're interested let me know quick before he sells it. I didn't ask to see the top down because I was actually in a hurry to get home and eat my food that was in my car getting cold, and he also just had a tow truck get there while we were talking. The guy does contracting work or something, and when his customers are short on cash he lets them pay him with cars. He was on his way to pick up an 80's woody k-car wagon.
