The Atlanta Showroom is offering this 1976 BMW 2002. If ever there was an automotive trendsetter, BMW's 2002 was it. This is the car that literally spawned the soon-to-be-popular Sport GT category and, in the end, was the main reason why the Bavarian Motor Werks became the successful car company that it is today. Struggling for survival as a manufacturer of both large, luxurious cars and the motorcycle-engined 600 and 700 series, BMW was literally put on the world map by the compact 2002 BMW as it became the hit seller that the company had long dreamed of creating. It was a car that crossed several markets, attracting buyers who really wanted a sports car but for practical reasons--be they family needs, cold weather driving or parking on city streets--were forced to buy a small sedan instead. The 2002 offered buyers both types of cars in a single, stylish package. And what a car it turned out to be. Lovingly referred to by its loyal following as an 02, from the time it was introduced in 1968, to its last iteration as a 1976 model when it was replaced by the more modern 320i. It's been thirty years since the last 2002 rolled off the assembly line, yet the cars are just as popular today as they were back then. But unlike highly sought after old cars that collectors want to buy for investment purposes, the 02 is more of a cult car--perhaps the ultimate cult car at that--which serious performance car enthusiasts the world over seek to buy strictly for driving enjoyment. These are cars that were built to be driven, and driven hard. Their four-wheel independent suspensions, coupled with the car's overall low-center of gravity, short wheelbase and unsurpassed all-around visibility, provide fantastic handling characteristics, which are so reassuring at speed that it will bring out the Andretti in all of us. Although the 2002 was in production for nine years, it remained virtually the same throughout its production run. Its major change was an aesthetic one, when the 1974-'76 models were fitted with rear rectangular taillamps and larger, energy-absorbing bumpers. These models also had an imitation woodgrain instrument panel and a smaller, four-spoke steering wheel. If you are seeking an affordable collector car that doesn't need constant care and attention, and can be used as a daily driver throughout the year, then the 2002 just may be the ideal old car you've been searching for. Since all the bugs were worked out by the time the final 1976 models were produced, these are, without question, the best-built 2002s of them all. The rarely seen Turbo, Cabriolet, Targa and Touring models, all of which rate high on 02 enthusiasts' wish lists, were not officially imported here, so finding one will be very difficult. Options include: Lumbar support, wipers, horn, AM/FM radio, seat belts, rally wheels, radial tires, and leather interior.
