Free 2002 - should I bite?


PSloan

Recommended Posts

So, I have a chance to get a 100% free 2002. It's abandoned at a buddy's church - has been for some time. All I know about it is what I see in the pics.

What do you guys think? I don't think it would make a good parts car for my 67 1600. I don't really know what I'd do with it either - but I still want it.

Thoughts?

I forgot - no title is included.

Supposedly the car belonged to some missionaries from utah (Mormon church) who left it there. The utah plates make sense.

Of course no tittle, stolen cars usually don't come with one.

Mormons; you most likely won't find empty beer cans in the trunk. However, what ever happened to these missionaries? Hopefully no flies swarming about?

good luck, nothing is ever truely free.

But what do I know

Nothing is free that's for sure, but in by books such process is called "recycling"/storage/towing. Take it, and part it out. You will do a good service to the community, environment, and yourself. Technically, you can charge those Mormons $80 a day for storage. In case you have friends in towing business, they can assist you in getting the vehicle titled and registered ( that's how I have gotten my 02)

P.S. Those bumpers can be nicely cleaned up, and the head looks very clean (possibly fresh???) + a set of e30 wheels. Be aware that this thing does not really appear all that free-hopefully you wont be giving sponge baths to the elderly once it's yours

Yeah... I really don't think the car didn't belong to Mormon Missionaries. The LDS church wouldn't allow (nor would the local leaders) missionaries to drive a BMW 2002. They have a pretty structured (to say the least) lifestyle. Also, Mormon missionaries would not drive their car from Utah to proselytize. If nothing else the University of Utah sticker on the back window is a dead give-away... if they were missionaries they would have A BYU (Brigham Young University) sticker instead!! HA!

As for the car, I Say YES! Good Luck!

    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
