Merlot & Mincemeat: 1974 BMW 2002

As classic cars escalate in price it is easy to just accept the insane prices and just declare that the new normal is to pay more than $10k for anything that isn't a basket of rust.  But this just isn't the case and affordable classics litter the local classifieds -- you just need to be patient and know where to look.  Find this 1974 BMW 2002 offered for $7000 in Saratoga, CA via craigslist.


 This next BMW is a manual gearbox equipped classic that looks like a nice driver for the asking price.  It has a salvage title and isn't some museum piece owned by a former rock star, but I'd drive this thing.

  3. The days where I sold my down to the metal restored, very boy and bolt touched '73 2002 for $15k and was glad to get it are truly gone. Would like another some day but when regular old square lights in decent preseved shape are sniffing $10k, I fear I'm priced out for a "fun" car...
