    Hello all!
    My name is Derrick and I finally joined BMWCCA. I used to be into Hondas and decided to take on a new venture, thanks to my sister. I think she may be a former BMWCCA member because I found a decal in her manual binder. She owned an E36 325 convertible and she loved it! After the clutch master cylinder gave up on her, she gave up on the car as well. It sat in our driveway for 4 years untouched because I had no knowledge of German cars. She recently passed away from cancer and left me her car. It instantly became my mission to rebuild the car as I knew she would be happy to see it running again. I stopped working on my E90 and focused my build on the E36. I am almost done and I am already looking for a new project, E30...
    Anyways, here are my past and current cars.

    Yeah, ditto - you can break the bank on the E90, and, since there's an infinite variety of things for E30's, you can get yourself a project that'll keep you busy indefinitely. ;)

    True. I guess now I have to find an E30.

    Well, you can't have mine, because it's not finished draining my bank account.
