I've decided to document some of what I have done and plan on doing since acquiring my 72 4 spd Agave Bav about two years ago. I found it on MA Craigslist after it had been brought here from Missouri several years earlier and basically sat in a mechanics shop barely touched. Eventually the shop and car owner realized it was going to take too much time, money and effort to get the mostly original 117k car back on the road so I negotiated a decent price to have it towed to my home where it has sat ever since. The car has an ok older respray and was filthy with a capital F underneath with 40 plus years thick layer of grease, oil, dirt, brake fluid, and Ziebart coating everywhere. I hadn't been seriously looking to buy an old car and I knew very little about any "old" BMWs ( pre-1985) but somehow the bus wheel, Shepskin seat covers, and all that glass told me this car would make a great driver someday. What did I get myself into?
