I've been trying to find my wife her little dream sedan for the last six months. Several I almost bit at, several a bit too rusty, a couple on ebay I was hovering over BUY IT NOW but the shipping to Alaska is $1600 - $3000 and thats a huge deterrent with the overall value of the cars. (Well, some of them anyway.) When POW! along pops up one about an hour from here, 1 owner since 1978.... garaged continuously since then.... latest model.. no rust in a 32 yr old car... I was flabbergasted. I present.... the 1976 BMW 2002. I know most of the cars on this board would be out of sight by the time this car shifts into 3rd, but that's not her style!

Having had the car a few weeks, these 2002 are cool. The M10 motor is about the most straight forward thing. I am preparing to rip about 60 pounds of crap out of the engine bay. The air conditioning hasnt been hooked up in 15 years (and I live in Alaska), so in a cardboard box all that stuff goes.

Also, this car is a 1976 California car with all the smog crap bolted all over it. Air pump... bye! EGR stuf... bye! Thermal Reactor exhaust manifold... bye! various valves, filters.... bye!

I will put it all in a nice cardboard box in case someone ever wants to "smog" the car again but here where I live in Alaska we dont need no stinkin smog controls.
