Unless you just flew in from Mars, everyone in America knows that you cannot trust a used car salesman.

My point exactly, and it's not America, it's the whole planet.

One would be hard pressed to find a more reliable old car than the E30. What were your issues?

So nice that this thread got bumped with all the hoopla going on . That e30 did go to the shredder, after I sold it and it was wrecked lol.

Years back this thread was deleted, glad it's back

Shredder!?!, shudder the thought. The E30 is the most popular car in endurance racing (16 to 25 hours) because of their reliability, abuse they can handle, ease of maintenance, cheap and plentiful parts, and being an all around phenomenal race winning platform.

Hardly "vintage" if it's true that the same guy is still doing biz via a different brand: https://www.ospreycustomcars.com/ (& just to be sure that it Googles: Osprey Custom Cars )
