Mid Week Match-Up: A BMW For Ben

If you follow the DT Radio show you might have noticed that Producer Ben has a thing about BMWs and his thing is that he dislikes them and belittles anyone who is a fan — however, he recently had the opportunity to drive an old E28 5-series for a few days and positively loved it.  For this week’s Mid Week Match-Up, I’d like you to help find a BMW for Ben for around $5-10k.  Must have manual gearbox, seating for 4, and decent paint.

For my money I’m going to go with this 1970 BMW 2002 here on eBay bidding for $5,100 with 5 days to go, located in Wallingford, CT.  The 2002 offers a great combination of vintage style, potential appreciation, and decent driving manners for not a giant pile of cash.  What do you recommend?
