Touring the United States
By Willem Macy
L
ike many teen car enthusiasts today, my passion for cars leans heavily
towards the legendary sports car of the 80s and 90s. Plastered along
the walls of my bedroom are
posters and photographs of DTM-era
E30 M3s racing alongside Mercedes
190Es and the like. Even some of my
favorite musical artists, like Frank Ocean
and Tyler, the Creator, flaunt E30s of
their own. Similar to many other car
enthusiasts, I'm also a big fan of
wagons. I have core memories of
waving to other motorists from the rearfacing
seats of my family's 2001 Volvo
V70 wagon as a young child. Though I
was still little when we got rid of it, the
Volvo provided me with an undying
appreciation for wagons - cool or not.
Having formed a strong love for old
BMWs and wagons, E30 Tourings were
30
an obvious dream car of mine. In early spring of 2020, my dad, sharing a
similar passion for them as I, wanted to set out in search of a Touring of our
own. However, that was easier said
than done. Given that Tourings were
never sold in the United States, simply
finding a good one for sale in our
area would be challenging.
What we didn't know was just how
much we were in over our heads.

area for all of my life, I've come to
experience a significant amount of
what the DMV car scene has to offer.
Although it's one of the largest
scenes on the east coast, and my
father and I have attended seemingly
hundreds of shows and meets in the
area, neither of us had ever actually
seen an E30 Touring in person.
