This next car left the BMW factory quite a few years ago. 33 years to be precise. Let’s put that in perspective. If today was 1989, then the equivalent year would be 1956. Imagine daily driving a car from 1956 in 1989? Nope, not a chance. Or if it were 1956, you’d be trying to […]
The BMW 7-series was the pinnacle of executive luxury in the mid 1990s and the boss of bosses would get the M73 V12 with a long wheelbase in the 750il. Today these cars are depreciated and cheap because maintenance is expensive and modern luxury cars are much more luxurious — but today’s example has a staggering 213k miles on the odometer and shows no signs of giving up yet. Find this 1996 BMW 750il offered for $5,500 in Long Beach, CA via craigslist.
A quick look in your local craigslist for $5k cars is an experience not too far from dangling in a La-Z-Boy recliner above a hungry sarlacc pit with nothing holding you up but a harbor freight bungie cord that’s on fire.

But, I think Tupac put it right […]
When I first saw this listing, I thought — DT is not a place for murderabilia, we are better than that. And then I remembered that we aren’t better than anything, and one of DT’s early breakout stories was Dr Jack Kevorkian’s death van. So…yup, this next thing is a perfect fit. Find this 1996 […]
The BMW 750iL wasn’t the first affordable V12 car to be sold to the masses because it wasn’t even affordable in any sense of the concept, but once depreciated it was the first cheap V12 that didn’t blow up on weekdays that end in the word day (I’m looking at you Jaguar XJ12). Thankfully, these […]
