"What I care about is being able to click into my skis for the rest of my life. I care about being on top of the mountains with my best friends. If I'm on my skis, I've got a big smile on my face. And I want to keep it that way." T-Hall http://vimeo.com/thenewsolution
but im buying an e30 convertible when I graduate as my summer car. I had the opportunity to buy one that was kinda mangled, but ran well for 500 bucks as my first car and did not capitalize. huge mistake
"You put on your boots, click into your bindings,
dust the snow off your skis, and head out for the chair. It doesn't matter that you failed a test, didn't get the girl, or that your life doesnt seem like it could get any worse, your world is right for the next couple of hours."
i love how you put an e24 is an e30. more power to you though start learning about these cars and buy one for yourself, start working on it, learn as much as you can and it'll reward you for years to come.
