    Hey Peter, I just came cross this video of your car that I have never seen before. What a car that is, I miss it every day, but I'm glad you have it now. One day I hope to see it again!

    Anyone know this 74 2002?

    Kind of hoping a previous owner was on this forum. I used to refer to this colour as Shit Brown. you certainly don't see many this colour so maybe that's a good thing.

    Les, I was hoping you would chime in. You are THE source for background info! Thanks!

    Ooops! VIN 4281113 Thanks.
  5. This car is for sale local to me in Victoria BC. Was supposedly driven from California to Victoria where it was bought by the current owner. VIN 428113. Never been my favourite colour, but it's kind of growing on me. Any history greatly appreciated. TIA Tony

    Maybe CD stills reads the forum, but doesn't post. We can only hope. I too miss his posts.
  8. Nice to see it being used as it should be. I agree with everyone above - the best version of 2002!

    We are now 15. Happy birthday to us.

    Congratulations on keeping this site up to date. I'd light a Cohiba in your honour...if I had one! So here's a box of Romeo y Julietas instead! Cheers! Tony

    Just to keep it interesting, any in-car footage from the e46?

    I can't believe it hasn't sold yet either Rudy. Maybe if people knew your dad Marcus Glarner was behind the fabrication of the important bits, it might get more interest. Great driving but definitely need a few more horses to get up that backstretch at Mosport! Good luck with sale! What will you be driving next year?

    This is the saddest thread I have ever seen on the FAQ.
  14. Dear Tony, if you would like the car back you may have it for what I paid and the $3500 I've spent on  importation,bodywork and improvements today. This would be my deal only for you,     because I celebrate who you are, and the integrity of the car. I'm not looking to make a penny on this car, I just want it to survive and be celebrated.  It is a great driver and special car. The car really needs to have a complete Shell, as I keep finding rust everywhere. even the  serial number is approximately 75% rusted through. The rear shock towers, and drivers  side frame rail , And more need to be completely redone. There are  multiple areas of significant concern. I would not have purchased the car had I known how deeply extensive the rust was.  I purchased a shell for it but I am torn on maintaining its pur sang integrity, and allowing it to absorb theIMG_3027.JPGIMG_3024.JPG black hole of cash required to make it structurally correct.  What the car really needs is somebody with torches, and many many weeks of vacation time and their own private body shop.  

     

    Sincerely, Peter

      Hi Peter,  I wish I was in a financial position to buy the car back, but finances was the reason I sold it in the first place. I am sorry to hear that you are not able to keep it, but I trust it will go to someone like you mention: able to do the body work, and not re-body it. In my mind it is no longer a ti if re-bodied. I hope you don't think I misled you on the condition of the car, I tried to be as up front as possible on that. But as you know it is not until you start cutting or digging into a car that you see how bad things really are. I never did that, but I knew it was a lot of work, which is why I didn't want to attempt it myself.  I was just happy to keep the mechanical things working as well as possible and drive it when I could. I thank you for your offer to resell it to me at cost, and I sincerely hope you don't have any hard feelings about buying it.  In the current crazy market of 2002dom, I think a  real ti will still be worth being restored.  

       

      best regards,

      Tony

      Dear Tony, I have no hard feelings whatsoever. I am an adult and I think you are a first class man and human, we are kindred BMW spirits. The hard part is getting the tar off of it so that it can be Welded upon, without setting the shop on fire.   I may well end up keeping the car, and replacing 75% of the metal. I am unfortunately under pressure by changes in the American medical establishment, limiting my time to work on multiple projects. The car always puts a giant smile on my face on driving it. It is truly a great piece of machinery at heart.

       

      All my best to you, as always,   very sincerely Peter
