Default Picking up another car...

Well, since I really don't have the $$$ to finish the Bimmer to drive it, I am gonna cover it up and put it away until spring. So I am picking up a rare '88 Olds Cutlass Ciera XC coupe special edition. It has the 3.8 SFI like the '87 Bonnes had and has a new trans and many goodies. It is a rare one because of the FE3 mated with the 2 door making it a very well handling car. It has very minimal rust and 150k on it. It is located in Rochester, NY. Pics to come later, so guess the price.

You going to say hi to the Rochester crowd while you are in the neighborhood?

Yes it is, but I thought I pointed out that it did have front end damage. It needs a bumper, hood, grille and that'* it.

when you coming? i'll make sure to go get it before you get here :P

You should stop by and say hi. I'll point you in the direction of a junkyard that may have parts for the BMW. What make and model is it? Also, when you coming this way?

And are you sure it is a 3.8L? they had 2.8L in them til 89 when they got the 3.3L. Neighbor has a 2.8L 89 4 door XC Special Edition and my dad had a 3.3L 89 4 door XC Special edition a couple years ago. Both are decent cars.
