Yeah I'm gonna call BS too, but I hope we are wrong. The car looks very nice, however ebay allows wonky things to take place.

Who knows, perhaps the buyer in last minute bidding haste thought it a real Turbo car and figured he was getting fair market value.

Or just your typical D-bag with a similar car wanting to raise an audience for his car. Watch, there will be 5 black 73's with turbo style flares on ebay tommorrow. The one in San Jose looks very similar for less than 5K, hmmm, might this be related? I dawn't tink so main.


But what do I know

Agree, I am not indicating the seller here although friendly shilling happens all the time. It seems permitted because it drives up final valuation fees for eBay. It's the Bidders of sort; like stock market traders, manipulate values so they can cash in on the hype. The next guy will think the item at half the price is a steal. They call it the greater fool principle.

Just a conspiracy theory. ;-)

    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
