Selling THE CAR


Recommended Posts


I acquired this beauty two years ago.  My son and I decided it would be a great project to embark on together during  

COVID.  The time has come to find a new home for this remarkable car.  I “adopted” it on BAT after it had been resting in the PO’s garage for 5 years.  During that 5 years, it had only been driven a little over 200 miles.  After “taking custody”, I lovingly brought her back to life and have been a part of taking her from being a survivor to being a reliable old friend who gets lots of envious looks whenever we are out and about.  

Not being a mechanic or a classic car guy, I must say I have learned a lot over the past two years.  I have done some of the work on it myself buy relied on an experienced, old school BMW mechanic, to bring the performance back to OEM standards.  I thought I would start this process by posting a video showcasing THE CAR.  Hope you enjoy the video and look forward to hearing your comments.  HAPPY NEW YEAR!

easy, esty, I think this guy knows little or less than little about,  A. selling a car like this, and B. anything about how faq works. 


I see cars and parts placed in the wrong category, easy to do for the uninitiated. I watched the video and from what I can see this is a really original well running car.  He produced, composed the music and drove the car. 


And he is offering the car to us!

Regardless of this post not being located in classified section of the forum, an asking price and location should, in my opinion, accompany any topic of this nature.  This isn't an auction site, I don't think.

Hving owned a Sahara 73 (carbureted) for the past (nearly) 45 years, I have a soft spot for the car.  


Folks, don't get your panties in a wad about the poster or where it was posted....I took it as a really nice video of a really nice car that means a lot to him and his son, whom I think did the video and composed the accompanying music (see very end of the video).  He's proud of what the two of 'em accomplished in bringing it back to life.  That he wants to sell it is almost incidental...


cheers and happy new year

    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
