Actually you're probably closer than I am. It's all the way at the very bottom of NJ, like 120 miles from me.

Nope, it was at the racetrack in Millville, NJ. Something else was in e-town a few weeks ago.

So I ended up leaving my house at 6am, an hour after I planned to leave. I knew a group of people were meeting at Guten parts at 5:30 to roll down together, and I wanted to meet them there, but obviously I was late. Stopped at 7-11 on my way for a quick breakfast, jumped on the NJ Turnpike truck lanes and guess who happened to be passing on the car lanes at that exact moment... Yep, the Guten crew. So I rode the truck lanes along side of them until they merged, then rolled together the rest of the way down. Got a few pics from the rest stop and some more from Gfest that I'll post when I get around to it. Had a great time, but it would have been better if I had gotten more than 2 hours of sleep. Watched some of the racing, chatted with some cool people, found out my car is pretty rare. Would have been great to have an e3p group there. I also kept forgetting to order another set of stickers to put on my car, but it's too late for that. I'll get them soon and they'll definitely be on whatever I'm driving at Gfest '16.

I kind of wish I did meets. I'm too introverted and my cars are never reliable enough for the trips. I demand pix asap!

How's your car rare?

I only had my car on the road for a week before making the 250 mile round trip. I was so worried it wasn't gonna make it. I hadn't even had it past 60 before that day. When I was on the Turnpike riding along side the other e30's I was shocked when I looked down and saw my needle was over 100! The E definitely rides a lot different than the IS. It felt like the whole car was floating.

I seem to have a lot of rare options, and nobody has ever even heard of the color I have. It's Arktisblau metallic, or however you spell it. Arctic blue. Upon doing very little online research the only people that ever mention that color are people who have either never seen one, or have ONLY seen one in that color. Has the rear head rests, from what I'm told the extremely rare (haven't researched it at all yet) OBC add-on alarm, I forget what else at the moment. On with the pics! I seem to remember taking a lot more. Maybe I have them on my other phone, but here's at least some for now....

I thought rear head rests were all early model 4 doors. I had an 87 with them.

Got any engine bay shots? I wanna see motor swaps!
