how far over the edge are you if you buy a totally rusty 2002 tii just for the front struts?

well, i did that today. in keeping with ISRCG rules, it is red. loaded it up in the trailer and brought it home tonight. it is paul wegweiser's original car. unfortunately the body is the most rusted out 02 i have seen that could still move under it's own power. (not safely..the left rear subframe is no longer attached to the car.)

Yay!

Rob - that's an old tii of mine from the late 80s. Massive sentimental value, but alas...too far gone to save. Glad Marshall and Co got it!

I drove that car from Erie PA to San Francisco in 3.5 days. Made it home in 3! In her day, she was a real runner. I ran that thing for 22 hrs at a time, stopping only for fuel and urine breaks on that trip. Hope the dash plaques / decals are salvageable.

Congrats Marshall! Keep in touch!

Marshall did not mention that the tii ran out of gas right after he pulled it into the trailer! Would not start when trying to back it out of the trailer.

Got to love these old rusty tii's..

Awesomeness!

I still have a spare *perfect* 1600 red plastic hazard knob for your collection. ***EDIT*** Oops! I have that for Clay! Stoopid brain o mine always mixing names up! I just got back from the 25hr Chump Car race at Nelson Ledges....things are a little fuzzy right now. Sorry!

No rush on any of it...I'm just grateful to lay eyes on it again! :-D

Thanks!!!

No coffee yet response...

You have to buy that stuff for new diesels with urea injection for cleaner emissions. Wonder when someone will invent a car seat with built-in "sump pump" and filtration system for replenishing the tank.

What is it with you and buying cars for certain parts, Marshall? ;) I kid, I kid.

What ever became of Barney? I know you have chunks of him laying around...

yes, i have a problem...;-)

the only thing i have left from Barney is the title, the VIN plate from the fender and the steering column pad with VIN. all the rest is long gone.....

Its circled red in the picture and bolts to the valve cover studs. It comes from a 320i and holds you ignition wires away from the header. Id be interested in any steering wheel as long as its in good condition.
