This car is fast, but I need just a little more!
My car was in Bimmer magazine, Feb. 2007.

I wanted a 323i since I first drove/worked on them in 1980. This car lived in Germany untill 1986 when the orig. owner brought it here,and Performed EPA and DOT work to it. I found it parked on the street in Garberville Ca. The second owner could not get it up his road so he parked it in town for his runs to the S.F. bay area. It was in pretty fair shape for having 180,000 mi. when I finally was able to get him to part with it. That was in 1997.
