Default 1985 C1 - CLEAN!!!!!

Very, very, very tempted to throw down a bid on this one, but I think it will be expensive.

With the condition of the car and the very limited production numbers this is possibly the once in a lifetime opportunity to own this car.

Oh that is spectacular. But why can't I find it in the auction listings. What day is it up for auction?

**EDIT**
only 35 built, I wonder how many are still in existence.

It was hidden in a larger grouping of cars. The auction system access I have changed in the last while, so it looks different than what most see. I find that it also sorts the cars different, so I'm not sure where you would have found it in your auction access.

Sold for 725,000 JPY which I think is a great deal for such a rare car in good condition like this one. E30 325i's with an auto transmission almost sell for this much in auction in Japan.

LOL. You DO need an intervention. I think a few of us on here will be happy to come down and relieve you of your addictive substances!

i could tell you but then you would be as smart as me. LOL just kidding ... you basically can bring any car in depending on how much money you want to spend --- at over 25 yrs nothing is required they come straight in --- at 17 yrs plus you dont have any EPA worries just safty , so you may have two or three things to do, lights, inside door beams etc -- fairly minor issues and when the first one has been dont all others come in under the same code --- under 17 years you can get into some big bucks and you try to avoid

the B12 5.0 is the second one in country and i thank Roger for paving the way.

there also is a way to get vehicles into canada cheaper and i,m looking for a canadian partner if any one is interested
