Lou is right. I paid nada for le truck. I actually got paid to take it. 200 dollars to be exact.

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...

Ed, I got it after the first couple posts But I liked that music video.


And Chad... How the hell did you manage to get paid to take a running truck?? It is running, right?...

And you shouldn't even need to see that E36. An LSD is worth more than $150.

I got paid to take it because I had to strip some plow stuff off of it, and have to put it on his other truck. Since theyre both GMC's, it will literally be plug and play.

Bought the car too. Auto, 153xxx, runs and drives, questionable transmission status (surprise there). Tan interior, AW exterior, racing dynamics kit, overall not in bad shape. Interior is almost flawless. Brand new tires. Fux yah

Dude, I'm jealous. That's super cheap even for my area. What was the story? Why didn't the owner just drive it to the junkyard for twice the money? Or is it barely moving at all?

You going to fix the bearing yourself? And the wheels aren't that bad. Should look pretty good if you can get the front end stuff painted.

He must have not known about the junkyard? Hes a friend of mine who loves E36s and his was in his family for awhile, he got it as a hand-me-down. Well, the autotragic is playing funny games and the shifter is pretty tough to move, along with some surface rust and other small issues like brakes. I'm debating whether to 5 speed swap it (i have a tranny), or just let it die and put another auto in it. I wanna save it, its pretty clean. And no, I drove it home at 80. Runs great.

The truck, well, I'm just gonna beat the **** out of it until it dies. Why not

Although, my parents are pretty pissed that I now have 4 cars in the driveway
