My first BMW 2002 was purchased while I was going through a divorce. I needed a cheap, economical car with some flair. In college, a buddy of mine had a 72 and gave me a ride in it, I never forgot how quick and nimble it handled the ride home. I found this one in the local paper for $1500 and bought it for $1200. It wasn't exactly the same ride as my buddy's 72, but it did drive my ex-wife crazy when I picked up the kids in a car without airbags. I eventually traded it to Jim Moriarty, CEO at Surfrider for $1 and his Jetta. He drove it to Chicago when he with SAP and I think it is still there.
