    Fjord near Fayetteville?

    Actually, your comments are very helpful. The car is about 4 hours away and I would like to inspect it. However, a couple of other cars just came up for sale closer to me and I will probably look at them today.

    Fjord near Fayetteville?

    I wound up buying a different (much closer to me) car for quite a bit more money, in a color I don't love, and without a sunroof. Knock on wood, I just felt better with the car as it sat in front of me. It has original paint from '76, which I think makes it easier to spot rust (and I found a little), and quite literally sat still in a garage for over 20 years. I saw the car in person, took it for a ride, and was back at my house within an hour. It's getting dropped off at my mechanic on Wednesday. Again, in my personal case, it just seemed easier and made more sense. Other people will think it was the wrong call, but it was right for me. My thoughts are that this Fjord car could be the right car for someone who lives fairly close and can do an inspection, at the right price, especially if you are going to do some of the work bodywork yourself. From the pics, there's some surface rust that needs to be addressed, then painted over. (I don't know about anything deeper, or underneath, as I couldn't inspect it. That's where being local helps.) If you can do light bodywork, this could be a good buy. Mechanicals, on paper, seemed to be good, and the seller has lots of receipts. With the amount of work required, that I've seen (and I'm making an assumption as I haven't seen framerail shots or tested for any rust myself), and the seemingly different engine from factory, I think you can make this car a nice driver for a reasonable price. If your plan is a full restoration to enter shows, then this car may not be for you. To be crystal clear, I wanted to buy the Fjord car, and might have if it were much closer. $10K may or may not be fair. It's hard for me to tell without touching it. With parts cars doing $5K, this car is a running daily driver with a still functioning AC and factory sunroof (and Auto if you're looking for one) so it seems to be well in the ballpark of fair. If I owned a body shop, or was comfortable with a sander and paint gun, I probably would've bought it from the pics, and had it shipped up. To be clear, as I've never seen the car, I'm neither vouching for, nor denigrating, this particular car. It didn't work for me, but for reasons that may be of no concern to others. Sorry I couldn't help.

    The seller seems to want $10k to $11k for this vehicle. But it has a rebuilt replacement engine. These cars are to be driven but they are also an investment. I believe the replacement engine negatively impacts the value of this vehicle. What are your thoughts?

    The Ad went to “expired” status in the last day or so. The seller does 911 restorations, as a hobby, and planned to do this one. I believe it’s been sitting for quite a bit, as I’ve received photos dated 2017 that look similar to requested photos from last week. Attached are a few pics. I’m in New York, or I would’ve checked the car out a month ago. Thanks if anyone knows this car. Seth

    Can you post a link to the CL ad? Where are you located?
  13. Does anyone know anything about the Automatic Fjord 2002 with Sunroof and AC on Craigslist near Fayetteville, NC? I’ve been talking with the seller and, frankly, I’m uneasy. Little things keep popping up, only after I push him on it. Photos are taken where I know problem areas are immediately out of frame. Facts (like a replacement engine) only come up when I see the receipts and ask about it. Etc. Etc. I don’t want to speak ill of the seller, as these could be innocent mistakes, but I don’t want to drive ten hours with a trailer to find a bunch of problems that were kept from me, and just turn around. Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks for any info. Seth
  14. Hi Friends! I am brand new to the site, but I have a 1973 2002 manual 4 speed. Car is running great, and a blast to drive, but it needs some rust repair/sheet metal/welding work. I have been calling around most of the body shops in the baltimore/towson area that I live, but I have been striking out. Do you guys have any recommendations for getting this kind of work done? I am pretty comfortable doing a lot of work, but I am no good at welding, and I gotta fix this hole in the drivers floorpan. Thanks in advance! Happy to be part of the group.

  21. The Town of Vienna is inviting us back again this year. They would like owners of VINTAGE cars (pre-1990s) to bring them out to the event. This is like a cars & coffee - no judging, no awards, just great cars & camaraderie. Please tell your other vintage German car buddies! ------------ We look forward to having the Classic Autos again. They were quite the hit and a great addition to Oktoberfest! The date is Saturday October 6th, festival times are 11AM-7PM. A map of the festival is attached with blue arrows indicating the entrance / exit. Also, here is the link to the festival’s website: https://www.viennaoktoberfest.org/ New this year: A public shuttle will be available from the Metro and James Madison HS to Ayr Hill and Dominion Roads NE. You will be located in the same lot as before (125 Church Street NE), but due to set up and the festival, we ask that you enter and exit between the W&OD Trail and the 134 Maple Avenue East (hopefully the club members will be having fun and will stay for the duration…if they do not, they can carefully exit back through to Maple without crossing the festival on Dominion Road and Church Street, as the streets will be closed and vendors will be setting up their merchandise). Note: for entrance or exit, it will require cars to go over 2 'very recessed' wheel stops (I believe all your cars navigated these with no issue) at the rear of the lot near the dumpster/tree, adjacent to the W&OD trail side parking area (we are using it for accessible parking). We ask if you remove the barricades, that you replace them back to avoid others using the area. P.S. Here is a google virtual view of the lot: https://www.google.com/maps/place/125+Church+St+NE,+Vienna,+VA+22180/@38.9031131,-77.2653133,51a,35y,128.35h,45.05t/data=!3m1!1e3!4m5!3m4!1s0x89b64bc84f7d9237:0x693fb1c9e76129b0!8m2!3d38.9029388!4d-77.2654461

    Wow. Sorry to hear about this. He certainly left behind a huge number of projects, tools and parts.

    RIP Pete Kell

    Auction link. Pete Kell was a gifted mechanic and passionate restorer of classic BMWs based in Pennsburg, PA. He recently died of a sudden heart attack, and our family is reeling. He left us with two partially restored 2002s (1972 and 1973), as well as a large quantity of 1970s BMW parts (motors, transmissions, suspension, body parts, hoods, window glass, interior parts, BMW wheels). His old shop is also for sale (Pennsburg, PA), along with a massive amount of quality shop equipment, a Kubota B20 tractor, and many non-2002 cars (a Chevy Rollback, two Dodge Rams, and a ton of Subaru’s). We will sell all of this and more by auction on August 4th. We hope it goes to people who love it as much as he did. More information here. Photos here.
  24. Gordon, It's been close to 15 years since I used Ye Olde Wheel Shop, but they did a great job on polishing the small lips on a set of E30 bottle caps. It wasn't a rush job & took longer than expected, but was priced reasonably. http://www.yeolewheelshopmd.net/ https://www.facebook.com/Ye-Olde-Wheel-Shop-123226927721635/
  25. I recently scored a set of 15X7 ET26 MSW wheels for cheap but they are in need of restoration (salt damage). Looking for recommendations on a wheel shop in the DC-Baltimore area (prefer MD side of DC area) that can restore these wheels to like new. Here is a pic of current condition and restored wheels.

    Congratulations! That looks like a much better car. Let's see...according to Google Maps that's only a 35 hour road trip to bring it home...
