I found this 1971 BMW 2002 when I took a wrong turn into a shipping business in Davis County in 2005. It hasn't moved since but is apparently not for sale. Too bad, it's in fairly decent shape (Andrew will tell you the shock towers are probably trash, which is likely) and I doubt it'd take much to get it running and driving, though restoring it to concours condition would be a chore. Early round taillight models are less common than later 2002s so it's a bit of a shame to see it sitting like that.

given the body rust, the shock towers are probably bad. That rust is from driving, not from sitting, and that's when the shock towers start to look bad.

They're fixable, but it's hard to do it well. And once the cancer has hit the shock towers, you can be well assured that it's on pretty much every bit of the car.
