Hi from Louth.
Just picked up an e30 there last week from a member on here!
It's a project car but I'm delighted with it.
I had a e36 years ago that I fixed up new clutch, rad, diff etc, it was a fun car, but insurance companies didn't like it
I'll try get some pictures up soon.
It basically needs some welding and a respray. I picked up an interior and have the engine running, I'll hopefully have a build thread up soon aswell.
I'll probably need some interior bits and trim etc
Thanks , Mick

Thats good--used to have a Ta 28 years ago--a fantastic looking car but just impossible to get body panels for it--you should throw up a photo of yours. Had a Ta 40 as well but not the same.

Yea that's very true! I had to get panels from California. That's the problem with such a rare car, you have to find the parts before you can buy them.
