0.5k: Hack Job: 1980’s BMW 528e E28 Custom Convertible

The BMW E28 sedan is a well depreciated classic that should be on the short list of anyone looking for a proper handling 80s sedan for cheap.  This 1980ish BMW 528e E28 Custom Convertible is offered for $500 in East Dayton, OH via craigslist.  Tip from The Hack Mechanic who writes;

You have to admire the joie de vivre, the devil-may-care, the live-for-today-for-tomorrow-we-may-have-to-drive-a-Subaru ethic that went into this particular creation.

Seeing this thing induces a spine tingling cringe not experienced since watching Cher dance around in a fishnet thong while her poor son played guitar in the music video If I Could Turn Back Time.  If only Cher could turn back time (not on her physique, which only seems to get more youthful with time) but on this 528e which needs a serious injection of botox and a major lift. 

Not a lot of hope for the condition the original 2.7 liter M20 high efficiency (eta) engine good for 121 horsepower and 171 ft-lbs of torque, but if it runs this would be a great starter for a 24 Hours of LeMons team.
