    Agreed! It looks sharp - euro delivery? (based on side mirror location and rear fog light in early chromed trim piece).

    Assuming it ever was available. Just seems too nice / too cheap. And the Craigslist description is awfully brief ("1971 bmw 2800 cs claasic one of a kind need some care , 5 speed clean tittle"), though perhaps typical for CL.

    Well, at least it has a "clean tittle". I hate cars with dirty tittles!

    I asked seller some basic questions a few minutes after this hit our site. Quick reply was he’d answer questions first thing Saturday morning. Have not heard from him since.

    I love craigslist photos. First, get a camera in a Cracker Jack box, take photos, make their resolution lower, run craigslist ad.

    :D

    The delayed response was from the seller was due to him waiting for walgreens to process the disposable camera that he received as a wedding favor in 1996.

    Does that gear shift selector seem awfully far back?

    For such a delapidated interior, it sure has a nice and clean A/C / radio plate.

    Anyone go look to see if it is real? Even assuming head is cracked and rockers, floor pans, & typical places are rusted, still looks like a good deal. I guess it wouldn't be if "frame" racked and it has significant poorly-repaired damage--forgot what they call it when they stick two cars together and use a clean VIN.

    I think that's typical of 5-speed conversions if you don't modify the shift linkage correctly.

    So, no one from Coupefornia has even done a drive by? Sure.

    My mental image [with keystone cops piano score] : Every forum member west of the Mississippi erratically driving around lost in Anaheim chain smoking w $15k in their pockets at 3:00 AM. A few, sleep-deprived in a van pulling a car hauler & cursing one another about directions and to stay alert for rental cars with Peter or Tony, knowing how deprived hearts with desire flip quickly to revenge.

    I think you mean we're taking Uber and paying with Bitcoin.
