The E30s are indeed being snapped up, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t some still hiding out there to be picked up by enthusiasts. Today’s is a pretty blue example with the M-Tech bodykit and has covered a reasonable 150k miles. It’s a little too nice to go the racer boys, but with a 5-speed manual and the classic 2.5l inline-6, it has years of fun weekends left in it. It will be very interesting to see where the bidding lands to give us a new baseline for decent, original E30 pricing.

The W126 S class was a childhood dream car for me. While most my age were enchanted by Countaches and Testarossas, I was dreaming of owning a black W126 some day. To this day, these big sedans represent everything I love about the Three Pointed Star. These were cars that solidified the idea that everything you did, the Germans could do better. I still see plenty of S classes from this era on the road and like a fine timepiece, they just don’t go out of style. This 1989 420SEL for sale in New York has been lovingly cared for and while it isn’t the top of the line 560SEL, it has the rare orthopedic seat option. Certainly a boon for anyone contemplating long journeys in this fine machine.

Finding an E30 Touring for sale is getting easier and easier. I fully expect to see one on the street any day, but it hasn’t happened yet – and that’s probably a good thing, given how much I’d like to own one. What is it about the wagon variants? Why do we get so excited about them? Perhaps it’s because BMW is awfully stingy with the fold-down rear seats, and an estate body would solve that stowage problem. Or maybe it’s because wagons are really a perfect compromise for anyone who needs more than the space their trunk offers, or wants to drive a hobbyist-friendly car while still carting the kiddos or mulch. This recently-imported 1989 has the added allure of being right-hand drive, which means you can easily pay off any unexpected maintenance with a part-time gig as a postal carrier. Choose the rural route – better roads!

This will be a bit of a quick hitter since we just featured a Silver Anniversary Carrera earlier this week. This time we have the other color option that was available on these cars, Silver Metallic. Unlike the previous example, this car comes with the original equipment necessary to return the car to original condition, which is always a nice selling point for cars such as these that are ultimately destined to become collector cars. With nearly 122K miles on the clock this example has certainly lead a fruitful life, but with a long maintenance history included prospective buyers should get a good sense of the current state of the car.
