Arghhh, yet another reason to move to Canada: Their classic car import exempt rule is only 15 years, versus our 25 years. Check out this beautiful e28 Alpina that’s providing incredible inspiration for our new e28 family car:
quote from eBay listing:
A VERY RARE OPPORTUNITY TO OWN A FACTORY ALPINA B10 E28 BODY BMW. THERE WAS ONLY 77 UNITS PRODUCED DURING THE PRODUCTION RUN OF 1985 TO 1987, THIS IS PRODUCTION UNIT #70. THE CAR HAS NO RUST,IN ORIGINAL CONDITION, ALL ORIGINAL EQUIPMENT. BMW PAINT OF THIS ERA WAS NOTORIOUS FOR THE CLEAR COAT TO CHECK THEREFORE THE CAR HAS BEEN RESPRAYED BY THE PREVIOUS OWNER AND THE ALPINA GRAPHICS ARE ALL CORRECTLY IN PLACE. THE QUALITY OF THE PAINT WORK IS EXCELLENT AS YOU’LL SEE BY THE PICS.
Damn. So sexy!
This car looks like damn good value for $16.5k. Too bad it’s not coming to the U.S. legally because it’s not 25 years old yet. At this price though, maybe it’s worth buying and storing for 5 years and then title it. “Hello, home equity loan office? Yes, I need to cash out!”
