e28 533i on Bring-a-Trailer auctions. Maybe I am out of touch with how much it costs to pay somebody to work on a car. https://bringatrailer.com/listing/1984-bmw-533i-2/ Please note the $19,250 to "get this car going again after long term storage" is AFTER a $6000 discount.
So while buying parts for my eta I ended up acquiring another E28... I'm starting to think I'm slightly crazy when it comes to these cars lol. Anyways it was a good deal that I couldn't not pass up in my eyes. The car is a 1985 528i which is a German spec car. Don't remember the whole story but I believe it was imported into Canada and then sold to a guy in northern Wisconsin which is where PointofDeparture picked it up, still need to get the documentation from him. Basically the car looked like this. Then it was involved in a head on collision with a deer. Then it was parted out and I eventually ended up buying the car piece by piece minus all the rare euro parts. This is from the night in late November when Brian and I brought her out to Colgate. And this is where I'd like to take it eventually Tomorrow will be the first time working on the car. Rampelsauce has been kind enough to tack up the core support for me, so I'll be trailering the car out to work in the morning. Maybe we'll see the engine in next week if I can borrow a lift. Won't be running though as I don't have a radiator or distributor. I'm sure other things are missing too not to mention it hasn't run in 5 years so we'll see! If I can get this running easily then it will be my track car/weekend driver for meets while my 528e is going through its restoration rebuild. If I can't hack it together without spending $$ then I'll sideline this like I initially planned. This could represent a car again very soon though! Another reason for throwing it together spontaneously is it will be less to move next month if the parts are on the car! I'll post up some progress pics tomorrow night.
