    The E30 Trailer... Picture Timeline (Almost 100 Pics)

    A quick story... This 1987 325iS was owned by a friend of mine who joined the Army 2 and 1/2 years ago. He owned it quite a while and this car is what made me love E30's. Upon joining the Army, he sold the car to another friend of ours. The car started heading downhill and eventually met its demise thanks to a tow truck smacking him on the driver side front of the car.

    The following posts consist of a picture timeline of this car's transformation in to what is now an E30 trailer. The first picture was taken sometime in 03/04 when the car was still very nice. The rest start from when I took posession in early September of 2006 up until current. By the way, I am not in any of these pictures [for those who don't know me].

I might actually do a jdm b16 swap(keep laughing when I'm putting down more HP/TQ than you) with triple ESC( electric supercharger newbs) megasqurit independent fuel management, GReddy boost controller and BOV. This setup is good for atleast 300WHP. My friends civic had the same setup.

    Is that a 2002 I see over there? You should have tried to wired in the lights. Now that would have been a sight. Great job on the conversion.

    Nicely done.

    How much does it weigh? Any tracking issues?
