If I remember correctly some douchebag ran a red light and killed the poor guy. Wonder what happened to the driver who caused this?

Just looking at the damage, would have being an absolute miracle if the guy survived. Shame to see a nice car and probably a nice person go to waste

I remember that from the news last year. Not a pleasant memory. If I recall, someone came barelling down the hill across Market from the direction of Corona Heights and Davies Medical Center and either ran into or knocked another car into a row of parked vehicles. The man in the '02 was killed. I don't know if the other driver was drunk or had a seizure/heart attack/fugue of some sort, but I would hesitate to pass judgement. I didn't want to remember that, but it's a good reminder that it could happen to any one of us.

    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
