Re: Rear ABS Sensors!! Oh MY!

Hey Jose! I'm just happy to be of service to the community. I know I need new ones and those connectors get old, brittle and will break if you look at them cross-eyed. He apparently has plans to include the earlier and later model types if these are well received, so there's that. Keep BIG COUPE AL...

Re: Good things begin on Jan. 12, 2009!!

It can finally be said. For the time being, Grace is complete! Doug Park completed the swap a few days ago and I had the chance to run Grace up Big Tujunga canyon road with VinceG101 and his M535i. Gosh what a difference. Doug Park is a WIZARD! The swap is flawless. The trans works without any issu...

Great find. Is that an XK120 alongside in the first pic and a Silver Shadow in the garage in your last pic? Good eye, Ron! Looks like an XK120 FHC!!! Oooh, now THAT would be the challenge of a lifetime. ~cough~ Sorry, that's an AWESOME barn find, LoSqualo! Truly it is. We're gonna need more picture...

Hey Lilacocelot! The car IS valuable and you might also want to investigate the www.e9coupe.com classifieds on how to place an ad there. (since it IS an e9) That said, anyone/everyone who is interested in this car will want a picture or 17 of the trunk interior, specifically the shock towers, to se...

Re: What DO the prices (on BaT) mean?

Dave, My observations on BaT lead me to the conclusion that if you want to sell a Canadian car for good money, you'll (unfortunately) need to get it over the border first. There is an inexplicable hesitancy on the part of U.S. bidders to buy an 'international' car. I know that it's really no big th...

I don't know how many of you are inveterate car porn addicts -as I am- who pour over the offerings on Bringatrailer.com to see the latest offerings from various collections. Most recently a 1988 M6 in Cinnabar with 31K miles on the clock sold for $87,000.00 USD, that's 127,903 in Australian dollars...
