1972 Bmw 2002 Base Sedan 2-door 2.0l Colorado Orange W/ Sunroof Nice Driver on 2040-cars
Fallbrook, California, United States
|Condition: The car has rust repair and bodywork that will be needed. The rear body panel has some body damage and the 1/4 panel near the gas cap is very slightly pushed in. I have tried to photo the concerning areas so there are no surprises. The rust is primarily on the fenders, hood, trunk and spare tire well and rockers(I will include 2 brand new rockers to the high bidder). As you can see the front and rear shock towers are original and solid as is the floor. The spots in the engine bay are surface rust only. There is one area photo'd under the car which is rusted which I believe to be the pedal box. The passenger side window can roll up and down but you have to assist it while turning the crank. Door locks not working. Missing windshield wipers. Odometer is not working. No Radio. A crack in dash - slight tear in passenger front seat bottom.
Features: The car has a nice shifting 4 speed tranny - no grinding with shifts up or down. There is a little play in the shifter but it does not affect performance. The car is its original Colorado Orange color and has a sunroof which functions as intended. The lights and turn signals work - original engine idles smooth and runs strong(still has original Solex Carb). I would not hesitate to drive the car anywhere. Fresh oil, plugs, points, hoses, filter. Brakes are good to go. BBS Wheels w/ low mileage tires(all matching). No center caps. Nice overall original interior. In summary this is a solid vehicle, mechanically strong, that will need some love by a good bodyman. Once done you'll have a very collectible 2002 in a desirable year, desirable color w/ a sunroof to boot. I have set a very reasonable reserve - Good Luck and let me know if any questions.
History: Clear Title is in my name - CA registration is paid through March 2015. I had bought the vehicle with intentions of restoring but other circumstances have changed that.
Shipping: Buyer will be responsible for arranging shipping or pickup. I will assist however I can to help make it a smooth process.

The incredible rise of Tesla's stock price has done little to now stop two major shareholders from ditching their stake in the American EV manufacturer. First, Daimler, parent company of Mercedes-Benz, ditched its four-percent stake, and less than a week later, Toyota is doing the same thing, selling off an undisclosed bit of its Tesla investment.

The move comes as Toyota winds down sales of the RAV4 EV, which gets its batteries and electric motor from Tesla at the company's Fremont, CA factory.
"We have a good relationship with Tesla, and will evaluate the feasibility of working together on future projects," Toyota spokesperson Kayo Doi told Bloomberg via email.
If there's ever been an inspirational story in the pantheon of motor racing history, surely it's that of Alessandro Zanardi. The Italian driver worked his way up the motor racing ladder, making it into Formula One and winning two CART championships for Chip Ganassi Racing back before the series re-merged into IndyCars. Tragedy struck in 2001 when he lost both his legs in a crash at the Lausitzring in Germany, but rather than accept his fate, Alex pushed on. Fitted with prosthetic limbs, he learned to drive a racing car with hand controls and got back in the driver's seat.

Zanardi drove for BMW in the European Touring Car Championship and then in the World Touring Car Championship that replaced it, landing on the podium several times despite his physical disadvantage. He left racing in 2009 to train for the Paralympics, winning two gold medals in London, but Alex apparently couldn't shake the racing bug. BMW modified one of its M3 DTM racers with hand controls for him to test later that year. And now he's returning to motor racing full time.
BMW has just announced that Zanardi will be driving a Z4 GT3 in the Blancpain Sprint Series, the successor to the FIA GT Series and short-distance counterpart to the Blancpain Endurance Series. The car has been modified with the hand controls the Bavarian automaker's racing department fitted to the aforementioned M3 DTM and will be fielded by the ROAL Motorsport team with which Alex challenged for the European Touring Car Championship last decade.
Driving a car is a dangerous hobby, and not just because of other drivers or poor roads. Sometimes, it seems like even the wildlife is out to get you, as evidenced here, here, here, here and here. Now, we can add one more unfortunate car-versus-animal encounter to the tally.
Perhaps believing that this bright orange BMW M3 GTS was a very fast, very loud carrot, an unfortunate bunny leaped into its windshield in a brutal accident at a Polish racetrack. Considering the M3's speed at the time, 89 miles per hour, the passengers are lucky to be okay. Obviously, Bugs didn't make it.
The BMW isn't in such great shape, though. The windshield is in a bit of a state, with safety glass sprayed all over the passenger side of the cabin. There doesn't appear to be any sheetmetal damage, at least from what we can tell from the video. Although there isn't any blood, the hit is really hard. The initial point of impact is at 0:57. Check out the video below.
