Previous ad.

When I bought this car, I said I wouldn't be heartbroken if I crashed it.

Long story short, I never want to look at it again. Runs and drives fine, pulls to the left very slightly, but I can't swear it didn't do that before the accident. The collision was under 20mph. I drove it about 15 miles home with no issue other than thoughts of self loathing because I'm not as good a driver as I thought. The Front trunklid (hood?), bumper and pop-up lights have all seen better days, but the radiator is fine. no mechanical issues past the front clip. All season tires are complete E36 M3, so I recommend you replace them, even though one of the sets it comes with has <500 miles on it. Comes with all the goodies from the previous sale. Would prefer long-distance sale so I never have to see it again. Will trade for a good lawyer. Updated pics to come.

I don't have pictures, I will get them some time this week. Title is clean.

I'm sorry for what happened too. I've preached for a while that all season tires aren't worth a damn thing, and they bit me. Winter tires November-March, summer tires the rest of the year, no exceptions. That said, they're just as fun on a track, because you start sliding at much lower (safer) speeds. Always keep assured clear distance.

Well, I'm a good lawyer but I'm only licensed in MD. Sorry for the bad news.

Cactus, I also bumped our old email exchange from when I was planning to trade the BRAT. Feel free to discuss there.

You know, I might have a white hood out in the garage that you can have for cheap...if you decide against getting rid of it.

Won't happen. I don't even want to look at this thing anymore. Talk to the next owner.

No money for the car, but I can offer a set of eyelids if you pay shipping (I'm in CT) if you want to sell it with some of the repair parts already included...

Why all the hate? I really miss my '87. Do you have a ballpark dollar number in mind?

(For anyone new to this thread, I'm the previous owner. I'd be interested in buying back one set of wheels & a few misc parts to help recoop some of your cost. Bought an SC MR2 in November I couldn't resist.)

Relax over there, this is still in the "scheming" phase. If you want a guarantee of my triumphant return to DC RallyX, you'll need to give me a codrive

Co-drive can be arranged once the m52 swap gets shaken out.

Apologies for the threadjack, carry on!

Got the car on ramps today, took what pictures I could. Lower Rad support looks untouched, but the upper is a bit bent. Probably fixable with prybars and hammers. Suspension looks untouched, suspension mount points look fine.

Gallery of pics from underneath.

She really looks clean underneath. Does toyota sell that upper cross member?

No idea about the crossmember, but the car I'm selling is still rust free.
