Drove a 1974 BMW 2002tii today...

So at work I had to drive a 1974 BMW 2002tii to Aircare (not sure what you guys have, but its an emmisions test). It was a really fun little car! It was really slow, and was only a 4 speed manual, but it was just so full of life. So noisy and little. I love old cars like that, cause you really have to drive them....newer cars basically drive you.

It was pale blue like this:


It was the oldest car I've ever driven apart from a 1960 Rolls Royce (which was a tank).

That does look pretty fun there...but probably tricky also...which really makes the drive more fun.

Congrats

I love the older cars too. I know what you mean about driving rather than being driven aswell

Exactly...it was fun because I had to be totally aware of what I was doing at all times.

That's why cars should be made like that, keep people aware of their surroundings, and not their choca-mocha latte

And their cell phone, make-up, kids in the backseat, shaving cream and razor, bowl of cereal, PSP, big screen TV with surround sound...

Should be is the key word.

Yeah my friends brother had one and DAMN is it fun. I seriously considered buying an 82 325i because it was so fun and still faster than my moms corolla but when i went to put it in reverse... Well it just wasnt there. So i had to turn its non-power steering wheel and get around. Thank God for tight turning circles. I bought a SHO instead and wouldnt have been able to pull the same manuever.
