VINTAGE1680

what you drive?

Recommended Posts

I've had BMWs, Mercs, Porsche 928 S4 (still have it). But the thing is... I want a JAG. And this JAG.

The problem is... they're still too expensive. But cars like this depreciate heavily. I think this is the best looking car on the market right now.

By-Tor, I agree that it is a beauty! A friend has one he got last year. It’s white which is not my favorite color but it’s really nice looking regardless.

Yeah. Mercedes AMG GT-S and Porsche 911 can probably beat in on the track with ease but I don't give a shit. Listen to these sounds. :D

Droool! I’ve been a 911 daily guy for years but the F type is incredible

Well who really ISN'T a 911 guy? How can you NOT love it? It's like saying that you hate the classic 1680/16610 steel Submariner. You just can't. :D

 

So many nice cars, so little money (and space). 

 

But can't disagree with Jeremy here. :D

Yeah. You should have bought a good one in the early 2000's. The prices have gone up lately, just like Merc Pagoda and water cooled 911's. The pristine ones are sick expensive.

Yep! Agreed. The door is closing quickly.

 

I (mostly) daily drive my ‘84. It’s a pain in traffic but the smiles it has given me for 6 years or so has been worth it.

The gauges matched my old Lava AP nicely!

That's amazing man. I love it. :o 

 

PS: What do you think about the new 8-series? The new S-coupe is absolutely SICK looking but now there's finally a competitor.

I’ve been seeeing a few of the benzes here in LA, and I gotta say, dang do they look great in person!!

 

I like the 8 as well. I’m very familiar with the old E31 before going backwards, way backwards, to Air Cooled

Yes!!!! So few cars these days seem to retain that kind of substantive elegance.

Thanks By-Tor!

 

Had this for more than a decade and once in a stupid while I think about selling it. But then I look at it, I drive it, and the old girl catches my heart again.

Always have dug yours! One of these has always been on my list too. And uncle of mine had one when I was a kid. In the winter, I’d detach the window defrost tube and put it under my jacket. Instant roaring heat!

The prices on these have gone nuts. And the shady D90 USA importer guy who got busted really really ruined the chances of getting one or any other model into the US easily

That is one of the nicest E31's I've seen.

 

Was it a CSI model or just standard? Can't remember.

 

Mark these words... it's so obvious that these are going up in value very soon. Just like the old 3.0 CS-models. They used to be dirt cheap... now they're as expensive as Mercedes Pagodas.

 

Merc R107 is next also. I prefer the SLC myself.

It's hard to find a running E31 my fav next to the E305c7208006679ea74f7378a6e0e189c0a.jpg
