'70s and '80s Japanese Cars: Too Practical For Collectors?

    Those aren't quite to the old point yet. I know in Germany, an E30 is just another used car.

    I agree. All sides win - buyer, seller, and the car itself.

    Yeah, and the fact that it had the 2.7 ETA engine (only 121 hp, but good torque) made it less desireable than the higher revving, higher hp 2.5. On the plus side, it was a very well maintained, accident free and never abused 2-door, with leatherette and sunroof. Nice car, really. For my use, I rather liked the driving characteristics of the ETA.

    Too bad I don't live next to andre. Maybe he would have rented me some space to park it next to his mastodons.

    Is it true they are renaming his property lot Jurassic Park?

    The only E30 that will get real demand is the M3. The rest, nice used cars. Another issue with sending them home is that they have to be worth more than the shipping costs. Even a nice E30 doesn't leave much wiggle room after transport costs.
