This next car is a celebration of Bracq Friday — a festival of the best stuff from French born automotive legend Paul Bracq. I know the days of getting a running/driving car for $500 are long behind us…and $500 will barely get you the parts to do your own brake job on a late model car…but I still hold hope for the occasional used pile of junk car that is cheap not because it is rusted out, but because only a few crazy people (myself included) would want it…and I think I found a good one today…although you will need to source a few key parts before getting it back on the road. Find this 1979 BMW 320i E21 offered for $500 in Richmond, CA via craigslist.
From the seller:
1979 BMW 320i

Selling a 1979 BMW 320is. This car has been sitting in a warehouse however will still start with a good battery. It was equipped with the sport package(LSD, sport steering wheel, Recaro seats etc). The seats and LSD are gone(went to a 2002/2002tii). Complete running car when the parts were removed.
Asking 500 dollars. I have a clean California title.
