    Default The "New" Old BMW

    I found this Gem out in Western Ga recently and had to have it. I worked some magic, and a few moments later, i had it. This is my 1976 BMW 2002 5 Speed. 135k OG Miles. Immaculate interior, Great clutch, New Paint, No Leaks, No Smoke, and Weber Carb Conversion. I plan to lower, Either camber plates and keeping the suspension kind of stock with IE level 2 springs and bilstein shocks, or bagging it, 15x7 or 15x8 wheels, and pulling and rolling the fenders. Anyways, Enjoy..

    Nice find! Looked into buying a farm 2002 with not much rust, but needed a lot of love. I was really looking forward to a build with it, but my husband had to talk some sense into me about it. Damn Dreams. LOL!!!


    Yours is awesome! I hope you keep it and enjoy it!

    I lowered the front another 1/2 - 1 in. in the front. To me, it makes a world of difference. Wheels on the way too... Cannot wait!!!

    I have decided on an engine swap for my car. I know im going to piss off the purists here so im prepared, but i have decided on a rotary swap due to my budget currently and because i know it will fit right off hand. Plus a bridgeport or J port rotary sounds like the sex. I would love to see my car with a 20b or r26b 4 rotor in it. That would be ultra. so, I have been looking for a few rotaries out this way. They are cheap and some are in good shape too so i wouldn't have to rebuild right off the bat.
