    My New Shitbox!!

    Hey guys,

    Been pretty busy lately with school and work and therefore my participation on this forum dropped to virtually zero. As some of you knew i had a 2005 ford focus that i loved, but because of the economic situation, I too as many others, had to grab some cash. I decided to try to sell the Focus despite the bad situation/reputation of the current canadian domestic used car value. The plan was the sell the Focus at a good price and get into something more sporty while pocketing some cash.

    So here she is. Many of you will probably say "shitbox" or wonder what is sporty about it, and it isn't necessarily fast, but it is a LOT of fun. Feedback is amazing and driving response is very precise.
     

    I picked her up on Monday and then also went to buy a parts car and swapped the entire interior over. Below will be this past monday vs. thursday shots.

    The car drives dead straight and runs strong and will only require and brakes/rotors and a new timing belt (just in case) 


    Anyways without boring you further her is my new 1986 BMW 325e Smiley As

    This M-Technik-Sportlederlenkrad is one of the best looking steering wheels of all times! Smiley
    We had that in our 325i, long, long time ago, the one without catalytic converters and very powerful 171 horses. Car was a delight, compact, powerful, very nice looking (diamontblack metallic and BBS "Kreuzspeiche" rims Smiley ) and so low weight when compared to today's cars.

    Enjoy your new ride, you did a fantastic job with the interior! Smiley

    Re: My New Shitbox!!

    Great looking car, especially with the new interior!  Smiley You were very lucky to pick up a donor vehicle with such a good interior at low cost.

    Reminds me of a 1602 I had when I was nearer your age. You'll enjoy it.

    Hey ATZ,

    classy ride but now you have to take up pipe smoking and wear those tweed sportcoats with suede elbow patches  


    Re: My New Shitbox!!

    They are fabulous cars, I owned one for 4 years, it was a hoot to drive, loved it to bits, I was really sad to see it go, but as I'm picking up my first dreamcar next tuesday, I had to sell it...

    Will post a report of my new car purchase here next week!

    Re: My New Shitbox!!

    This was the second car I owned. Same color, same options, smalled engine (318).

    Brings back good memories. Cheers.

    Hi Atz, this is a great looking car. I used to had a 328i, was a great car with an even better engine. Very fast and agile!

    Enjoy it!


    Re: My New Shitbox!!

    A friend of mine had one for over 200,000 miles. Great buy especially with your skills in refurbishing it.
