My 1976 BMW 2002.... "That I picked up for $200 Buck.&q

I had been watching this car on Ebay for quite some time when it was being auctioned off. Even mailed the guy a couple times asking a few questions about it and as luck would have it, the car was just over the hill from where I live. Aptos, CA.

Sadly, I had missed out and some else had moved-in quickly to stake their clame. When I tuned back into Ebay to see how the car was doing, the auction had ended and only at $230-some dollars.

Whelp.. a couple days later, the guys emails me to tell me that the winning bidder had backed out. It turns out, the winning bidder thought the car was drivable even though the auction description said that it wasn't.

Long story short, the seller offered me the car for $200.00 and my wife being the angel she is, agreed to let me buy the car to fix it up into a drivable state and then sell it. THAT was my original intentions. BUT.. now after getting the car actually going and driving it a bit.. she's become somewhat fond of it.. and now I'm leaning towards fixing it up for her as nice little putt putt around town car.

Anyway, what I've posted below are the picture the seller sent to me when I was asking about it. After this here initial posting, I'll start posting the little-by-little restoration pics of her as I go along. Feel free to join in and comment or question if ya' like.

    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
