        Haha....nah, def not Zim...lol. Sorry i missed you guys Sunday, my girl and i got back from a baseball game and we were beat, man....Sun did us in.

        I'm not sure....I think its an unspoken "thing" at the moment. I have such a soft spot for the E36, miss my old ones too. So we'll see...if i buy it it wouldn't be my DD, almost as a collection car I guess. There is just something raw and unfiltered about those cars that you simply can't find today. Its by far not a very FAST car...but its a very fun car. You know....we've had these chats before; its not always about sheer power that makes a car enjoyable. E36 has a very special smile factor. From what he says...his makes 280whp N/A...so it would be a perfect balance car.

        I totally get it. It's the joy of sound, connection to the car, steering feel, shifting etc... A total visceral experience. I LOVE that too. I think I'd be so tempted to find a nice Active turbo kit for it, and make it zippy. But then again, I like sleepers hehe
        You hitting Vintage Fall Fest Monday?
