How the f*ck do you manage to scour Craigslist from coast to coast and consistently find so many gems? Is this a part time job? Are you getting paid?
Searchtempest works very well for me,
I have some specific searches like this:
But also like playing around with odd general inputs like "4 speed" or some such which is kinda fun, plus the usual marque searches too, like '93down Saabs which are hensteeth nowadays.
If I keep it up maybe I'll get a .gif avatar like the cool kids.

E46 M3 in best exterior color, NAV free (IMO makes the car less dated, plus I'd rather use my iPhone anyway), and great condition minus windshield/some interior trimmings. Overall would clean up very nicely. I'd bite.
Speaking of M cars, this E34 M5 has been sitting on CL for over a month now. As you can see it's been painted in the past and needs a fresh respray. Assuming it's not been horribly wrecked (i.e. passes a PPI), I can't imagine going wrong by buying this for $12K then budgeting in another $10K for a proper respray/mechanical sorting/correct wheels. Also red E34 M5's look so damn good.

^ At that price you should grab it. At the absolute worst you could part it out and make some money back. I had a green '93 GLX 5-speed ~ 10 years ago. It was stock, with Bilstein's and H&R springs. Coming from Mk1 & Mk2's, it felt solid and was more fun than you'd expect. VR6 induction growl on a cool morning is a great sound!
1. I have no space for it
2. I already have too many cars
3. I'm planning on selling my Jetta in the spring, so it's pointless to think of an engine swap (nevermind I lack the tools and first-hand knowledge)
4. My Scirocco is already a bit neglected, why throw in another project car?
5. I lack the time for a part out (and space)
...and yet I still want to go check it out. The VR6; it calls to me.
