    You end up finding anything?
    I can store it at my place, I should have space assuming I don't pick up a 3rd car before that

    So my good friend who lives between San Francisco and Sacramento went and picked up a little e30 for me, early model 325e manual.

    its a bit rough on the outside but mechanically shes a peach which is actually exactly what I wanted.

    its had all the coolant system overhauled new timing belt and a tune up and a load of other bits.

    came with a front valance (not fitted) and a few other parts included sport leather front seats in a reasonable condition. Dash is cracked to hell but that's to be expected being a Cali car, I am going to try and find one of them dash carpets and if anyone has any bits going let me know. It does have that missing door card in the photos just wasn't fitted and something hit the passenger side meaning the passenger front fender and door are Bronzit, not white but I am going to keep my eyes pealed on CL whilst I go across the country and try and hunt down some white ones I can collect and fit on my route.

    so I guess this is a little about the pre-trip build for the car. Any suggestions welcome!!

    Didn't the 325e come with an M20? Those had timing belts?

    Also, is this still an option as I had a place below NY to leave the car but if we come above I need to find somewhere else that can keep the car for a little while.

    End of November kind of sucks, gets pretty chilly and windy.
    Yeah of course! Even if it's in NY I can come grab it and keep it at my place if it doesn't work out
