These wheels polished up really nice, and with paint on the centers they would be perfect.

A car that I've had a love for since I was a young kid was the Porsche 356, my grandpa had one and it's been a part of the family off and on during my life. His is a convertible model though. I always loved how relatively simple they were, the rear mounted air cooled engine provided enough oomph to scoot it around.
This example offered on the Seattle Area Craigslist appears to be an old restoration but still in very good shape and one I wouldn't feel bad about driving around and having a little fun with. If it's in good shape and not a clone the asking price is quite reasonable and would make a great addition to any guys sports car collection.

I just bought this Pastel Blau 1976 BMW 2002. It's a 4 speed manual and shifts great. The car had it's engine rebuilt only a year ago and it's an original California car. The interior is two tone white and blue and looks like it was pulled out of a 1950's american car, but I like it because it's unique.
It has brand new suspension and overall it drives very well. It was lightly hit in the rear quarter panel, but nothing big. There is almost no rust, only a little under the spare tire well.
The tires have less than 500 miles on them and grip the road great. I will use this as my daily driver/weekend project to slowly fix up. "OB" on the license plate stands for Old Bimmer.

In 1988 BMW introduced the 325ix to their model lineup. It was not a big hit, but more of a bragging right to compete with Audi. "Oh Yah? Well we have an all wheel drive car too!" This is too bad, becuase the 325ix is still one of the best snow cars around, way better than any Audi of the time.
Here are two very nice BMW 325ix's. The 1989 white E30 has a Buy it Now of $7950 OBO and the 1988 silver one is being auctioned off. The white car is fully restored, and looks fantastic with the smaller bumpers. White over Tan isn't the very best color combo, but it's so clean you can't go wrong. According to the seller the car has no dents, dings or flaws. The five speed manual is a necessity in an E30, otherwise it's a dog.

You don't see a lot of older S4's, they are fairly rare. And it's very rare to find one in pristine condition. This car looks to be nice driver quality with 126k miles, which is not bad considering the age.
The black exterior over tan interior is nice, and this car would look especially good with a pair of newer B5 S4 wheels. This car has a 5 speed manual, which I'm sure makes it way more fun.
The seller is looking for $6,500 which sounds about right.
