Parting out that car is alot of work. I would try
to sell it as 1 car before parting out. I just bought an 1988 528e for $350 cause it was way out in the middle of now where. hat may not be what you want to hear but if the buyer has AAA, and its only $130 to get it, the towing is free. hat way you may get more for it.
Hey Scott, have you seen the latest Autoweek?
There is a picture in the back, titled "Moving Miscues" and there is a white E30 like your old 318 with what appears to be have Washington plates and the car is completely packed with crap including the roof of the car. Any chance this was you?
thoughts on parting your car
How bad is the rust? How is the rest of the car? How much is the car worth to you? Does the car have anything of value (sport seats, etc)? If you parted it out, do you have a use for the parts (other BMWs) or would they just take up space?
Tell us where you would like to go with this and I'll come back with some more guidance.
