Cool Current Issues... New ride?

So tonight my '75 530i had its cabin filled with thick, white, musty steam from the heater core... not much fun. Other than that she idles a bit high once warmed up (between 16-1800)... but is smooth. Anyhow, she's stuck at work until I either bypass the core, or replace it and drive her home.

Tonight I also got my X-Mas bonus at work... which to my surprise was over $1k. I'm still smiling to say the least. I figure this weekend I'll get a cheap commuter car so I can keep the 5 @ home and work on her. Well, of course I start browsing for a BMW first (maybe I'll find a gem that's waiting for me). Guess what I found: '72 Bavaria 3.0... for $900 (link to car domain page: http://www.cardomain.com/ride/2951732 craigslist ad: http://seattle.craigslist.org/see/car/499681225.html) Now, As much as I would love to just run out and buy her... I know I don't need another project (though she runs and just needs tabs), but I want a 3.0 SOOOOOO bad. I just love the look. *drools*

Anyhow, that's all... just thought I'd share.




Lata!

That pretty much says it all. The car will most likely turn into a project at some point. I'm saving a 92 Nissan Sentra with 145k on it as a backup for when my BMW is undergoing work. The Sentra has new brakes, clutch and gets 30 MPG. It burns a half a quart a month as a daily driver. I've put 2500 into it including purchase 2 years ago. I have to make a point to drive it since I got my BMW a few weeks ago. When the Sentra dies, I sell it. I can't see doing that to a BMW. Good luck with your decision.
