      I think we're overdue for a thread to post or discuss the wonderful oddities and tragedies from Bring A Trailer .




      What are you watching?
      What can you reasonably afford?
      What are you bidding on?

      I'm also watching the e34 since mine is pretty similar. (except stanced according to Ross) There seems to be a steady stream of M5s M6s and 928s there.

      I keep an eye on all the vintage 4x4 stuff with thoughts of buying something out west and driving it home over a vacation and selling it.

      I tossed a few bids at this one but it went over what I was willing to spend.

      If this is the same Jeep that I am thinking of, it is a basketcase with nice paint on it.

      It looks pretty nice but the description lays it on a little too thick. That rear brake line is tight (may just be the angle) and captain rattle can had a go at the chassis.

      There was some talk about it online awhile back. It supposedly had some body/floor rot that was covered up in the listing.

      Damn you Brendan. Now I'm watching the 510, and it's your fault my wife is looking at me angrily. I've known that car for a while. Spriso is the king in Datsun SR swaps, in my book.

      Well if you need to make some room in the stable, I'm more than happy to car sit for you. I've been needing a new weekend car since I sold the E9. SS just doesn't cut it for weekend car duties.

      I am going to T Hill west with the SS on Saturday. You should grab a toy and join.

      No-can-do this weekend. But May 7 I'll be at Sonoma Raceway with TMR.

      Don't worry, we will find a weekend soon for you to drive my silver V8 around Orinda-grizzly peak while I swap into your SS.

      Shoot me a text and lets figure it out. I might make it to Sonoma on the 7th if my Dad can't make T Hill this weekend. He seemed super pumped for the invite, so I want to attend an event where he can drive too.

      That's my friend Eric's car. His builds are super meticulous. The other car is a nut and bolt restoration DR30 Skyline with RB26dett power.

      M88 scares me. High mileage M88 scares me. Getting it smogged in CA scares me. Hold me.

      This car is pretty damn appealing if the price stays reasonable.

      What are you thinking is a reasonable max bid?
