  1. I'm out of town until tomorrow late afternoon. Also, I accidentally deleted the email you just sent me and I can't recover it. Please shoot me another and I'll reply with my cell and we can talk/text about a good time and my location.
  2. Sold! Yeah, I lost big time with this car, but it's been a long road, and I'm just happy to be moving on. It's going to a new owner in NH. Not sure exactly what you're referring to. The only thing I think it could be is the intake, which makes a chirping sound with the air under hard acceleration.
  3. Bump. Last chance for anyone who wasn't aware of this car for sale, but more recently up for auction.
  4. I just threw it up on eBay. Link: http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/271099952921#ht_1658wt_1167 or Item #271099952921
  5. Sorry, just saw this now. Hopefully you got my reply to your email this morning.
  6. I took it out of the car in 2008/09, but I don't recall there being any issues with the synchros.
  7. I don't know. It came out of my 2002 with stock engine/trans configuration. Sorry, I just sold it.
  8. This is the best photo I have. This is the day I picked up the car. They're currently off the car and in storage.
  9. Lol, yes I still have it for sale. No photos, but can take some if you email me back saying you're still interested. Yes, I'll accept Paypal.
  10. Update: I've disclosed the following details to everyone who's contacted me with interest in the car, but I'm going to try to make it easier on myself and post it here. Contrary to how it appears in the photos, this car was not professionally restored, and there are a few remaining issues as I touched on above. Since I sort of ran out of steam (to keep it light and brief) on this car, here's the remaining issues that I think you should know. - The e30 shift lever is missing its upper half. I can't recall exactly how I ended up with only half a shift lever, but I never got around to sourcing the other major piece and figuring out how to mate the two halves; not as easy as you'd think. It currently just has a generic shift knob attached to the top. It functions fine, but you'd want to eventually put together a correct length e30 shift lever and knob for better ergonomics; plus you'll be able to install the correct rubber shift lever boot that should be there as well. - The speedo is off somehow. It works, but reads about 10 mph off if I recall correctly. This is something likely easily repaired by a speedometer repair shop. - The tachometer is not connected. Since we did a 5-speed swap, this was something I never got around to finding a solution for, since the 5-speed from an e30 and the tachometer from a 2002 were not originally compatible. There's a way to fix it, but it probably requires work by a speedometer repair shop to make it compatible. - The front seats currently don't lock into the fore/aft adjustment position. This had never bothered me as I'm fairly tall and just had it adjusted all the way back with no issues. However, a fairly short man recently test drove the car and I was reminded of the issue when he tried to adjust the seat forward and it wouldn't lock in place. Also, here's an additional video I just created for someone else who wanted more footage of the car running and more shots of the interior.
  11. My dd '87 Jeep Cherokee "Chief". It's not pretty, but it gets the job done with character. 240,000 miles on the body, but only about 15,000 miles on a new crate motor. Other than the motor, just about everything is original except the shift knob and wheels/tires (not pictured below).
