I am going to look at an e36 tonight as well, for the low low price of 150 dollars. It's in limp mode I think. Yes it's autotragic and it's a bit beat up. Good running engine and a LSD though. Potential rallycar? Maybe...
Wow.....what. You got a truck and car for a net of $50. That's intense. Want picks of the truck too, car looks good for $150.

Hilarious to watch a Buick roast its front tires off up the road
My dad had a 2000 Bonneville SSEi, same 3.8 s/c V6 in it, it was pretty quick and the exhaust note was nice, but the torque steer was inexcusable. You could feel the wheel yank to the side.

Nice! Pretty picture.

FWIW, Rover wiring is retarded. Had to pull a trailer this weekend and the trailer wiring wasn't in place yet. There's a factor connector behind the tail light, rectangular 8 pin. Rover sells a trailer wiring kit that plugs into the connector and provides a *European* 7-pin connector to hook to the trailer, but it's not the same as American 7 pins. Oh, and that retails for $255. And you still need a converter to American 7 pin. So I thought I'd splice in a quick 4 flat to the wires. Nope. Separate turn signal and brake light wires don't play nice with the trailer. Had to hunt down a converter for that too. It looks hella ghetto rigged behind the taillight.
