A Little Tempting: 1975 BMW 2002

I always cringe a bit when I see someone describe a car as having “a little rust”. Just how much is “a little”? The problem is that one man’s patina is another man’s panic attack. When I saw this next car, I was immediately attracted to the low price and 10-foot appearance, but any potential buyers are going to need to live with “a little” rust or know how to weld. Find this 1975 BMW 2002 offered for $12,000 in Novato, CA via craigslist.
