1998 BMW Z3

posted in: Online Around the Net | 3
Someone who has gone the way of the early Miatas, shoved this Z3 in a garage for hibernation.  Pulled it out a little early for a good return but that’s what she said.  I have to tell you that I love this pale blue color.  VW came out with theirs for the bug and I’d buy one just for the color alone.  Z3s have always been on my radar because despite their weak chassis design and flex, I like the styling and am sure I would enjoy driving it.  2,900 miles, mint. 
On eBay in PA with a reserve but only reached $13,300 on August 15, 2011 and didn’t sell.

    Oh yeah, that’s nice: I, too, always liked the Z3 from their introduction on, and our color tastes seem to line up, too! How do you feel about the re-introduced T-Birds? 🙂

    T-Birds had my attention when they first came out but they never lived up to the hype. Nice conservative lines but under delivered on performance kinda like the Prowler. I remember talking to the product manager from Chrysler about the Prowler when it first came out. I asked if would come with a stick shift. No. Why not? Because the only thing we have that can handle the power is the to-be Viper transmission and we are not going to be putting that in there. Oh.

    What? That’s crazy, but not surprising. I think maybe Ford perceived the market for the T-birds as not interested in power, but the old ones sure had plenty; I miss my 427, let me tell you!
