Looks like a good deal to me!  esty, do you have a 2002 to replace it with? Technically not a faq question in my opinion.

 

Just wondering why after all this time and labor.

Steve, we do have other cars...our 76, the car that started the crazy, that we've owned since 78, ...a 76 choptop, created by Marc Zak (conkitchen), and a 72 + the 74....steve's tired of working on my cars and we don't drive them anymore, the worse thing you can do to an o2 is not drive them...the plan is to sell them all...i'll make the same deal on the 72 if anyone's interested...it starts and runs but has not been driven in 6-7 years...as soon as we get the new clutch slave and master on it will be operational

 

we also have an 83 e21 and an 87 325is cab

Oh wow, I’m sorry to hear this, actually.  

 

That “chop top” is outrageous - what is the story on that?  

 

How come you’re not driving them?  Just too many to get to?  I know I have to create reasons to drive my 02 - try to drive it every week because of what you say - sitting is bad.  Plus, of course it is great fun.

my husband and i are sadly afflicted with geriatrics and feel we have to act while we can still do the work...

 

i don't have the long story on the chop top...it was given to us by someone on the board who obtained it from a board member in California...i believe the builder did more than one chop top and has done one or more custom, modified o2's...maybe

I understand.  My Dad has a car that is starting to go this “hasn’t been driven in months and months” road.  We’re going to have to figure that out, and it won’t be super easy, I don’t think.  

 

The chop top is great, and I’ve always wanted an E30 cab.  I guess I have a theme, there, lol.

we have a very nice 87 e30 cab, i believe the color is Lapis Blue with a tan top and interior...automatic and all the power buttons...it is like the car in this pic with bottlecaps...$3000.00 and i'll throw in a new top we bought for the other cab

 

buy it and i'll give you another 87 cab to go with it
