...is that the owner's spouse, partner, mother, etc. has said, "Can't you sell that car?" "All you do is tinker on that car." "We never talk." "It's not safe to drive that old car." "What's so special about that old car, anyway."

So the owner, (presumably male) says, "OK, Honey (Mom,whatever), I'll run ad ad and see if I can get rid of it."

So the owner runs and ad (at a ridiculously high price), and transposes two digits of the phone number, "accidentally."

So when he is challenged by his spouse (partner, etc.), he can say, "Yes, Honey, I'm running an ad to sell it, but no one seems to want it." "I haven't had a single call about it."

Actually, I admire how clever this person truly is...

Several months ago during my quest for a top condition tii, before finding my Inka restored '74, I sent him email in April and got back 6 good resolution pictures. He was advertising in the AutoWeek classifieds too at one point so he's definitely putting some money towards trying to find a buyer. Can't tell much from only 6 pictures, but my overall impression is that it's a very nice car in all areas if you are looking for original vs. restored. I would say it could be worth near $10K to the right buyer--$12K+ if it was a '72 or '73. Don't have any idea what he is thinking with a price many thousand above market.

    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
