    New member intro...and my new to me E30

    I sold my first BMW (a Bronzit 1987 325iS) about 15 years ago and always missed it. Recently we decided to acquire a second car and I was lobbying heavily for another E30. My better half was reluctant...but was more agreeable if a convertible could be found. So we found one! Meet Brunhilda:

    It needs a lot of work. The interior is pretty much shot and the engine bay was a shambles. It was running when the PO dropped it off but hasn't moved since. It wouldn't start so I started pulling things off...replacing worn items and cleaning things. Everything is back together now but now the engine isn't even cranking. I have some electrical demons to work out.

    Anyhow, I'm in the College Park area and would love to meet any other Bimmerheads that are nearby. I'm looking forward to meet-ups but have to get the car running first. If anyone wants to check out my project thread on you can find it here:

    I am trying to document this project as best I can. Its been really fun so far and I'm looking forward to getting it running!

    Got her running today actually! That made me very happy. The RPM gauge isn't working...and the instrument cluster has a "brake lining" lamp lit, but this was a major improvement over no cranking, no starting.

    I'm looking forward to meeting other NCC members soon!
