Nice looking car. I really like black on 02's. I thought you where going to take this off the market after you didn't get laid off?

I originally decided to put my car up for sale because of pending furlough from my employer back around Christmas. At the time I started looking for supplemental work elsewhere and found a sort of manual labor type gig that I can run myself on days off, etc.

Well over the New Years Holiday mandatory sequestration was avoided and the can kicked down the road a couple months. It's become quite clear now that Congress is unwilling to act before March 1st to stop the process from happening again.

This sequestration was never intended to be implemented, only to motivate lawmakers to reach a compromise on cutting the budget by $1.2 trillion over 10 years...so now that it is going to happen it's going to be pretty damn detrimental to everyone in my agency and those employed by the government.

Mandatory furloughs that will not be paid back at a later date are set to begin in March, facility closures, employment separation, mandatory salary cuts, leave exigency, etc. So here I am again, same shit different day.

Anyways, to wrap this rant up I've been working a part-time manual labor gig on the side to supplement my income while I was on hold over the past two months..even after getting my job "back" I kept it going but am limited in the amount I can make by not having my own work truck. So I've decided to continue to pursue a sale of my beloved bmw to help finance the purchase of a truck in order to somewhat secure a source of income for my family throughout the coming hard times this year is sure to bring. I can't afford to keep the bmw and buy an additional vehicle otherwise I would. Running out of things to sell!

So if you're in Arizona and have a truck you don't want anymore I'm willing to entertain a trade!

Things could be worse. Could have no job at all, like my son in law, with four kids. Good hard labor never hurt anyone. And there will be another bimmer in the future.

BTW, I'm a carpenter(and a good one), and still active at 71.

Hang in there.


Yea I've got nothing to complain about, shit happens. Could always be worse. I've got the scars and busted knuckles from years of working with my hands, not afraid of a little sweat labor. Everyone is always asking though why am I selling such a cool car I love to death, so I figured I'd be open and inform everyone why.

    BMW Neue Klasse - a birth of a Sports Sedan

    Unveiling of the Neue Klasse Unveiled in 1961, BMW 1500 sedan was a revolutionary concept at the outset of the '60s. No tail fins or chrome fountains. Instead, what you got was understated and elegant, in a modern sense, exciting to drive as nearly any sports car, and yet still comfortable for four.   The elegant little sedan was an instant sensation. In the 1500, BMW not only found the long-term solution to its dire business straits but, more importantly, created an entirely new

    History of the BMW 2002 and the 02 Series

    In 1966, BMW was practically unknown in the US unless you were a touring motorcycle enthusiast or had seen an Isetta given away on a quiz show.  BMW’s sales in the US that year were just 1253 cars.  Then BMW 1600-2 came to America’s shores, tripling US sales to 4564 the following year, boosted by favorable articles in the Buff Books. Car and Driver called it “the best $2500 sedan anywhere.”  Road & Track’s road test was equally enthusiastic.  Then, BMW took a cue from American manufacturers,

    The BMW 2002 Production Run

    BMW 02 series are like the original Volkswagen Beetles in one way (besides both being German classic cars)—throughout their long production, they all essentially look alike—at least to the uninitiated:  small, boxy, rear-wheel drive, two-door sedan.  Aficionados know better.   Not only were there three other body styles—none, unfortunately, exported to the US—but there were some significant visual and mechanical changes over their eleven-year production run.   I’ve extracted t
