an unmolested euro E24 M6, imported and certified by Hardy & Beck.

Very decent original paint, original leather, one small crack in the dash, 3 piece alloy wheels, 76K original miles with just over 1 k on a fresh motor - got it for a great price from the original owner who'd quit driving it over 10 years ago, left it in the back of his warehouse until 18 months ago, then pushed it outside and left it sitting out in the weather.

He let me take it for a short run - quite a bit quicker than my wife's US spec 633 CSi, with a wonderfully raspy exhaust note.

This is the guy who's also building a square-light, euro bumper M2 from a rust and damage free 2nd owner Fijord sunroof he bought locally a year or so ago - says he's probably going to sell the M6 once he gets it properly detailed and gets a few small flaws fixed, so if anybody's looking for a nice original euro M6, let me know..........

an unmolested euro E24 M6, imported and certified by Hardy & Beck...........

Little known history: Alan Hardy -- formerly a lawyer before opening H&B with Hans Beck -- got in LOTS of trouble with the state for allegedly helping his customers import gray market cars on one-time exemptions and illegally by-passing smaog laws.

This car may have some of that history. Nonetheless, sounds like a very nice car....

now: '72 Inka 2000 touring, '82 Alpina C1 2.3  & '92 M5T (daily driver)

before: a lot of old BMWs (some nice, some not so much), a few air-cooled 911s and even a water-cooled Cayman S

    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
