      Yes, why would you want a piece of junk Sierra with God knows how much $$$$ in repairs when you've got a perfectly salvageable M3 sitting in your driveway ?

      Vad, you make less sense with your car shopping habits than late M. Jackson on his drug-induced novelty shopping sprees.

      This one is even on the west coast. It does lack a salvage title which I suppose rules it out for Vad.

      Vad wouldn't know and his mom would be happy to have it out of the driveway. Win-win.

      I say bring the M3 to a nearest port and have it shipped across the Pacific. I know a certain person who's going to have it running in no time.

      So, wouldn't it be easier and cheaper to convert the window to big glass instead? You live in freaking California, the paradise of custom body work. I bet you could have this job done on every other street corner. Then thebrit would only have to get body panels sent over, and those are common as the Cossie used the regular 3-door Sierra skin.

      Uberchad did this. The pillars are different, so it requires grafting of an entire Sierra roof on. You can find his pics in the Contour thread.

      Also there is a Sierra notchback sedan usually parked in my street, non-Cosworth, so even more exotic... want me to ask if it is for sale?

      What, did you find this rust bucket at Crazy Ray's or something? You're in this car for a dollar?
      Why didn't you tell him you'd drive out tonight with cash? C'mon, you're better than this.

      And Vad, you should go to Crazy Ray's next time you're on the East Coast. There's a dedicated, sectioned-off lot of ex-diplomat and other gray-market/Soviet era remnants set aside as whole cars for sale.
