    Good Morning Peter, We will be looking forward to seeing you on the 15th. I just want her to have a good home and not somewhere where she is going to rust away. She has given be so much joy and put so many smiles on my face at a time I really needed it, she deserves more than the neglect that I've given her over the past 11 years. She deserves to get back to her original glory but just there where she is not just a beauty queen but can still get on the road and have fun stretching her legs. That is where she and I had a blast between 85 and 100 down the North Dallas Tollway. She deserves to have fun again...

    See you soon, and safe travels,

    Brad

    I'm working with Brad to assess the car. I have a viewed allot of videos on the car and it has some good and bad points but I will definitely have to visit her in person. Brad, great talking with you yesterday. It took 12 hours to put in the headliner :-(

    I will try to arrange a visit within a week. May bring my trailer :)

    It was great speaking with you as well Peter. I feel your pain, the headliner has to be the most tedious and unforgiving projects on any vehicle. If only the slightest flaw, it's like a neon light and if it's perfect, they'll never notice it. Like I told you on the phone, you are welcome here anytime, morning noon, or night. Come on, and bring a trailer.....

    Hi all, I spoke to Brad and he sent me lots of videos as I could not get up there to visit personally. I am fortunate in that the Polaris coupe will be traveling to Boston this week which leaves me room in the warehouse... But, I don't want another e9- only because I have the Austin Champ, and a Baur Targa, and the M90 rebuild, and the little e21 I.S. that needs lots of little things, so if there is anyone looking for a project let me know and I'll see what I can do to get up there with Brad. From what I could see it looked pretty solid and would likely make a good candidate for a complete rebuild- semi resto-mod, meaning it's a big bumper coupe and most of the stuff would need rebuilding or replacing. The interior is very well deteriorated and it has some exterior damage from hail. Pluses are a seemingly solid body and all the parts seem to be there.

    Bottom line, the car is still for sale. While working out a fare price I would say, after talking with him extensively, I would feel comfortable with Peter setting a price of what he believes the car is worth. We can always negotiate from there, I just want to be fare (both sides).

    Hang in there Brad- I think that's a good price- maybe a little wiggle room, but not much- I wish I could get up there but issues that no one wants to hear about prevent me right now- someone should go up (or down) and have a look!!

    Lotsa pics, but you definitely need under carriage pictures.

    Rust on that fender and spare tire well is a bit worrisome.
