About the author of this siteSo who am I? I am just an enthousiastic E21 owner with some computer skills, who felt like he could contribute to the E21 online community by making a site like this one. I'm 20 years old and I live in Belgium. I own two E21's, which happen to be the only two E21 versions that were never imported to the US: the 320/6 and the 323i, which are the two different six cylinder versions found among the E21 series.
The first car I have ever owned. I learned to drive with this car two years ago, when I was almost 19. The car belongs to my mother, and was bought in April 1980. It is still first owner (my mom) though I am the listed driver.
I liked the car but started to actively care for it when the engine broke down in the summer of 2002. I had a cracked cylinder head, and the car being in the state it was, would be sent off to a junkyard. However, I decided I should have a go at it, even if it were only to look at the insides of an engine (I hadn't even dismantled a lawnmower before).
So that's how it started. I found a new head, thanks to RJ, and managed to finish the car by the end of the summer break. In spring 2003, I adressed the several spots of rust and finishing the car. It doesn't look new, but it's clean and rustless now.
With my interest for the E21 series sparked after summer 2002, I wanted to keep working on cars. I had been searching since then for a 323i with at least a motor in need of a rebuild, not too expensive to buy either. Finally, in spring 2003 I found the car I was looking for in the Netherlands (thanks to Jeroen who provided the contact). The car is currently stored in a garage and will be my project for summer 2003. I plan to completely rebuild the engine, address the bodywork and then repaint the car. I'll see what else needs doing as it comes.
Here are some nice pictures from the previous owner of my 323i:
Here are the two cars together: the 320/6 on the right, 323i on the left. My sweet pair :)
