To DANGERGRRL:

Where are you located? It seems to me you said somewhere in California? I am sorry I didn't pay attention to all of your posts... what is your goal for the car you are looking for?

If it is a daily driver, then I might recommend a 1974 if you are in California. You want as much visible taillight as you can and those big bumpers keep repair costs down. There are a lot of arguments for the 1974 model year car as the better daily driver.

To Edgar:

Bringing in a 1975 into California from out of state is such a PITA that the value of the car is severly diminished. If you wanted a car that would appraise for $5K (and I am sure the car could get that kind of appraisal), then it would have to sell for $3000 to make sense:

$3000 to purchase

$500 to ship or drive here

$1000+ to reinstall all the smog cr*p and have it baby sat thru a smog inspection... assuming you find someone willing to do it and it passes.

If it was titled as a 1974 model, then you might have a better ROI.

ok, well I'm actually in Pacifica, but I'd be driving to

the city at least 3 times a week. So, I'm looking for

a daily driver.

It was also mentioned that I consider a carb over

the tii, which is fine with me. I actually don't really

have a preference on that. I would however prefer

a roundie to a squarie, but I see your point given I'll

be driving in the city and forced to parallel park

close to soccer moms' SUV's.

I remember watching a new S600 Benz back into a Nissan on Filmore. And the benz has SONAR and the mirrors tilt for a better view when you shift in reverse!

I always heard that you found a trailer hitch and sort of secured it under the car..just enough so it doesn't fall off, but not for actual towing use. Idea is that park by braille people will worry that their radiator will get gutted by your tow hitch BEFORE they can smash your bumper in. haven't tried this on a 2002, seems to have some value on my old truck, which actually has a real class 3 receiver hitch. I suppose it could even be black -silver painted styrofoam, since it is used only to keep people an extra 2 feet away. That would make it easy to take off for tours, etc.just a thought. j. england BMWCCA 892 INDY

    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
