That's no east coast lizard...


Looks like the shedded skin from an Aligator lizard.  They are very common in California.


I only slightly weird thing I found was a 'Green Party' button under the back seat of my '73 tii.

My father bought a 1941 Graham Hollywood that was sitting in a barn for over 30 years. We popped the trunk open and there was a skeleton of a cat with four baby cat skeletons next to it like they are nursing.

20 yrs ago I moved my tii to a warehouse for storage.  Now that I have it back in my garage I am going through it. When I removed the front seats I found my "stolen" diver's watch.  20 yrs ago I was 100% sure someone stole it during a garage sale.  So much for being 100% sure!


Not weird but I also found the Oct. 1993 issue of Roundel in a seat pocket.  Classified section has dozens of 2002s for sale including: 74 tii CA car vin 2782777 "near zero rust" $2,950; another 74 CA car tii vin 2782296 "no rust" $6,750 OBO; 73 TX car tii vin 2764350 "absolutely no rust" $5,550.  Bill Howard's End Piece article stated: "A 72-74 tii that sells for $4,000-$6,000 today could be worth $8,000-$10,000 in 5 yrs"  :-)

'71 MGB - sold   '74 2002 - sold

'89 XR4Ti - sold  '94 Miata R Package - sold

'73 tii - restoration project - sold

No in an 02 but...., I bought a little Peugeot 306 diesel a few years back after crashing an E30 320i into a ford transit of all things and when I was cleaning out the interior, I found a numbered keyring to a locker I had in work that I lost about 5 years before hand same number, script exactly, had to have been the same one, I must have taken a lift in this car years before and didnt remember. I didnt know the owner or the car before buying it. Oh and I still used the same locker!

    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
