This article really hit home for me as the owner of a 1973 BMW 2002tii with 70k miles. Bought it for a thousand dollar in the late 80's and never have considered selling it. Add to that car my 69 L79 big block 4 spd convertible corvette picked up from a divorcee looking to shame her husband (sham on me? Bros before h---?) and I have my dream car from when I turned 16 in '69. Big differences between these two cars mean I get my "Ultimate" driving experience from the tii and 550 hp of brute force and admiring gazes from the vette. My future plans are to make my warhorse 1975 square tail light 2002 SCCA ITB road racer street legal with 15" wheels, 5 speed ( 4:11 diff) , and working lights / blinkers...ac maybe...all just for cheap driving fun.
