Been missing having a small fun old school toy and so after watching the episode of Fake & Loud where Aaron drives the Ford Cortina the hunt was on. With lots of cars on my watch list the one thing that really catches my attention is "Original paint". If you'd seen some of my last bondo horrors you'd under stand. So when this showed up on CL it screamed come and get me. Been parked since 91 waiting for a restoration. The owner had been collecting parts for years but lost his job and needed to sell everything. Would have loved the same deal on a 510 but didn't want to let this pass.

By most peoples standards I have never finished a car but I really enjoy getting them back on the road.

My problem is I'm to eager to borrow a car trailer, drive for hours and don't want to admit failure when I get there so I have to bring it home :sweat:

I did move it 140 miles including $210 ferry boat ride.

 

Haven't I earned letting it sit in my garage not doing anything to it for years like the last owners?

 BMW 2002 are great cars! You lucked out and got a pre "Front and rear porch" bumper set! Just pray that you won't have to change the water pump. The designer obviously considered the pump to be indestructable so designed it to be mounted before hooking up all the other front end accesories, the hose between the intake and the block is incredibly short and there is little lee way to wrestle the old one off and the replacement on. Personal testimony, and yes, the designer was wrong, the water pumps do fail.

Thanks for the heads up on the water pump. I've heard changing the heater cores are the worst, the running joke seems to be that the car was built around them.

Does anyone ever really finish a car?

If it drives with it's own power and the brakes work, it's finished. :)

Here is why so many of 02's get flares. Stock track width is pretty wide for the body so not much room to play
