I can still remember the day my father brought home our first e23 733i, a 1984 model, fully-loaded. I think he paid less, off the showroom floor, than what a fully-loaded F30 328i would go for today.
And by "showroom floor" I mean the main lobby of the Baystate Bank building, as this was before there was a BMW dealership anywhere in Western, MA. The one dealer in Boston at the time had setup this display of three cars, which eventually turned into a full-blown stealership.
I inherited her my junior year of high school, and drove her throughout the latter half of high school, and all four years of University up in Vermont. That's the car that started the addiction that to this day has not tempered.
