Found tii # 2782125 today

Or more precisely, what’s left of it.

 

Went to the other side of the island today to check out a friend’s newly built garage/shop and his cars. He owns to ‘70 2002s, a NK an E30 318is and an E30 325i convertible.

 

On my way back, I stopped halfway for lunch and check out some cars owned by a gentleman I had corresponded on and off for a few years.

 

This is what I found:

 

The owner said that he had left it at the family farm stored in a barn after it was hit in the driver’s side fender. He didn’t bother to go back for years and when he did, it had been picked up with a loader and thrown in the middle of a field, where it rotted away.

 

Here are the photos I took today:

He bought this one, also years ago, to transfer all the tii goodies:

He doesn’t really want to sell them, but I don’t think they will live again if he doesn’t.

 

On a brighter note, another friend sent me pics of this Granatrot tii that is being restored:

I need to update my list, but I believe I have already identified 100 2002s here in Puerto Rico!

 

Cheers,

Thanks, Harry.

Conceivably, that beautiful car could have been bon within a day of mine (2782059).  They ended up so far apart in so many ways.  Maybe with the right time, funds, and touch it could...naaaaah, no way.  Bummer.

That's the rustiest 02 I have ever seen,

Even the oil filler cap has rusted thru... Incredible...

I like the look of that granatrot,  harry (I have a granatrot ‘74 base).   Here’s a couple of photos of a granatrot Alpina that sold at auction a few years ago, if your friend has not already seen them.  Something to aspire to.

That car is sweet! Granatrot is such a pretty color.

Hi Harry. You should soon be able to add my 2002 to the list. It and the 2002 M Roadster ship from JAX to SJU tomorrow.

BTW, there is a Fjord 1974 tii in Aguadilla. I don’t think it’s moved in a few years. The owner is not selling.

Great news!! We have a get-together planned for Saturday 6/15 at Pinones Beach and will be doing some parade laps at the races at Salinas on August 4. Hope you can join us with your 2002!

Holy crap that car is rusty! Are you sure it didn't come up from the bottom of the ocean? :) It looks like the hood wasn't removed....it just disintegrated.

RUST BUCKET!

 

How much did he offer you to "Just remove it!".

 

Mac.

My tii was originally Granatrot too - now its Verona, I have to say I wish it hadn't been changed.

Even a good re-paint doesn’t last forever.... 😉

Agreed - but mine is in good enough shape that it'll be quite a while before the amount of work required to do a repaint right could be justified. But yes, when that day comes, it'll go back to granatrot. In the meantime I have plenty of things to do.
