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.

See another classic for cheap?


  1. I'd drive it too...Too bad its across the continent.

  2. The black wheels seem out of place, but it looks like a nice driver.

  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...
