I love this car, but due to new circumstances we are sadly letting him go! I know someone else will enjoy this car just as much as I have!

Benny the Bimmer is a great little car. He is small, but he sure has a lot of kick! Its a 2 door, 4 speed standard and 1976 was the last year of the 2002 model. My mechanic father (Dr. John of Dr. John's Auto Clinic) purchased him as our first car project and it runs really well! Over the past four years we have been maintaining and upgrading it, including:

-New used steering box

-New brakes

-New time chain tensioner

-Valve adjustment

-Upgraded to Weber with mechanical secondary

-Rear Bilstein shocks

-New 320 I bucket seats w/ head rests

-New water pump, thermostatal & hoses

-Numerous oil changes every 3000 miles
