trying to find the owner of this one its at an abandoned house....has few good parts on it body is rough....but it has a locking gas cap has anyone seen that before?

I have owned 4 02's. Each of them had a locking gas cap. I always thought they were fairly common. Almost as common as 02's today, I guess.

Strangely though, the price of an original locking gas cap has jumped enormously on ebay.

I recently stupidly lost mine when I left it on the bumper....

and found out the same locking cap was going for over $70 on ebay, holy crap!

The new locking cap that BMW sells is flat and doesn't look as nice as the original style, plus it costs over $45. Its $25 just for a non-locking new cap.

I went for a week or two with just duct tape over my gas tank....no parts store even had a generic replacement.

I put a free lost and found ad in the local newspaper, and by some miracle a girl found it and saw the ad, and gave it back to me. That thing made it well over 20 miles before I hit a bump and it bounced off.

Never again, I'm gonna rig up a cord to hold it in place or something.

So yeah, if you can find the key to that cap, i'd sell it on ebay!

My gas cap rode on the trunk lid for about 5 miles one time. A guy at a red light pointed it out to me. It fell off pulling into the next driveway.

    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
