The '24' badge is gay as hell. So are the wheels.

Around 20 grand is way too much for such a car, especially with title issues. That much money buys you a well-maintained and excellent condition E46 M3. Or if you want to pull hard, buy an E36 M3 in perfect shape, and you'll still have plenty of money left for forced induction. At least both of those cars have suspension that works well, and aren't simply designed for the sole purpose of being able to fit 26" wheels under them.
As far as M3s go, I found this within my price range. I'd probably offer them $17k or something.

Here is another one with incredibly high mileage, so I would probably offer the owner $13k.

News flash: 150k miles isn't bad for a 10-year-old, well made European sedan (BMW, Mercedes, Volvo, etc.)
You can expect upwards of 300k before a major overhaul, with proper maintenance.

For 20k, this looks like a good time.

Do yourself and your budge a big favor. Pick up a 2005 or later UJC (universal japanese/Korean) car, spend money on tires to get through the winter if necessay (Les Schwab will work just fine) and spend the money you save next spring on your bike. UJC provide reliable, inexpensive to maintain transport, less exspesive insurance and sometimes decent gas mileage.

Me, too, which is why I made an extremely low $10,000 offer for it.

If he agrees, then I will take the time to go see it.

I didn't post the picture of the Dodge Challenger showing that the airbags had been deployed.

Anyway, I went to look at a Mazdaspeed3. It was fun to drive, but had some issues that the dealership needs to rectify.

News flash: you shouldn't make blanket statements about such a wide group of cars.

Watch out for early production E46 M3s. BMW got a bad batch of rod bearings and had a lot of S54 engines go kaboom. This is a well known problem - google it. S54's are expensive to replace.

This actually happened to an acquaintance of mine who bought an '01 in 2011 - engine blew <6mos after he bought the car.

Meh.....

I think you mean most everything that is OHV is a pent roof design including the Hemi.

Only true hemispherical engine that I know of that is still in production today is not found in a car but a dual sport motorcycle. The Honda XR650L and that engine was designed over three decades ago.

"By the end of the 1970s, development of engines utilizing true hemispherical chambers had ceased around the world; it had been gradually displaced by dramatically improved newer engine designs."
