Not an E28

Post by Ju@n »

Hi!
It's been a while. So a couple weeks ago I bought an E21 316 Ascot Grau :) , my girlfriend really likes when we do regularity rallies with the E28, but I really didn't want to use the E28 when the weather wasn't as nice, or the road wasn't pavement, so I started looking into Fiats and Fords (128/147, mk1 or mk2). But a friend that has an E21 320 convinced me to spend a bit more and get a "real car" :laugh: . So even though it's slow, it's 100 times more comfortable for these competitions. So without more preamble, here are some pictures :)

In two weeks of ownership I've already had to buy the whole of the cooling system brand new... oh well... it has 42 years :laugh:

Beautiful e21. Keep us posted on any upgrades, mods, etc., but already looks de puta madre.

Thanks guys!
No mods to this one (yet) :laugh:
I might change the diff ratio, it has a 4.10, and it's a 4 speed. It goes all the way up to 4000 rpm @ 60-65 mph :shock:

Oh man, my civic is at 4000 @ 80mph and I thought that was bad

Beautiful! I can't remember the last time I saw an E21. My dad bought an almost identical 316 new in Lapisblau shortly after I was born. Aside from having some old photos someplace, I don't remember it unfortunately.
