    I got your bad idea right here:

    ALFA Romeo GTV-6 1986

    You can then kill the two birds of owning an italian car and an Alfa Romeo.

    not into alfas?
    73 fiat 850 must go!!!!!

    1979 Fiat Spider (project or parts)

    I got a 124 with rebuilt twin cam engine I would make you a screaming deal on. especially if you have a 20kw-ish 3 phase gen head lying around.
    Bike:
    Buell X1
    Honda S90 (box of parts)
    Honda CB750C (runs)
    The Others (mostly rolling wounded)

    My collar may be a little frayed, and maybe I need a shoeshine. But nobody\'s got a mortgage on my soul. I own it. Free and clear. -Phil Lovecraft

    speaking of self loathing cars. I like 325ix BMWs.

    Jag hates BMWs. All BMWs. Every single last one. And he reminds me of this every time I suggest an e30.

    Really?
    e30 is my answer to anyone who asks about getting into club racing for cheap.
    If I had more space I know I would do it. Also if I couldn't build something 6x faster for the track for the same money...
    But still, while 325is prices are increasing, its pretty hard to beat. They are basically indestructible. Parts aren't crazy expensive, and you can go racing with a fun bunch of dudes that are in it for fun.
    Not like those guys with the tic-tacs with flip up lights spending $16,000 on a 76 hp engine(1hp increase from a junkyard engine)

    And I just can't believe that anyone, regardless of their irrational hate of bmws, could actually hate an e36.
    I mean come on...
    And I mean the car, not the people that generally own them...

    I had an e30. a 1991 325i 5 speed manual convertible that I bought for $500. Sticker on the car was $35K in 1991. It was one of the last e30s with diving boards. Wife and I drove that car from 2008 to 2013 and I sold it with 172K miles on it to a kid who drove it 500 miles back to Canada the same day. It was a wonderful car and I miss it. Because the bmw e30 had been the preppy villian car in so many teen movies Derby used to say "lets go bust up a prom" almost every time he got in it. Jag has actually been in that car when I exceeded triple digits with the top down.

    Ask Jag about the e36 M3. He will go into some diatribe about how it was the most over-hyped car he has ever driven. Actually don't, he has real hate for the bmw e36, mostly because it was a douchebag magnet for so long and you really don't want to listen to that.

    Kinda like a wrx, or wait...his current car. The automotive equivalent of a cb750.
    A neat little engineered thing, that every scenester douche overpaid for to bag and put 18x11 inch wide wheels on with -16 degrees of camber for instagram followers.
    Here that Jag. Your car is basically the new e36!
