My new around town ride

I have a 97 e36 but picked up this guy for 850 bucks. Wasnt running when i got there and I checked it out knowing the problem and got the guy to go down 200 bucks. Once i got home I replaced the kill switch wire and boom she ran great. Only goes 40ish but really fun! I sold my old vw a while ago and the bmw never has problems so I really needed something to wrench on

It's a classic; a functioning one at that, which is quite cool.

If I were you I would probably do some DIY work to restore the appearance back to the original look. Old classic deserves to be brought back to the original form.
