Frenchman Paul Bracq designed many great cars…but few are as affordable for the level of awesomeness as the E24 generation BMW 6-series.

I’m not saying this car is a good deal, no…I’m shouting at the top of my lungs that it is a STEAL! Find this 1981 BMW 633CSi offered for $8900 in Sacramento, CA via craigslist. Tip from FuelTruck.

The shark nose e24 generation BMW is another beautiful classic coupe designed by Paul Bracq. The e24 was a replacement to the aging CS and CSL coupes, and over 86,000 were produced for worldwide consumption from 1976 through 1989.

The E24 generation BMW 6-series is a paradigm of the expression “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it” — because the model lasted from 1976 through 1989 — a 13 year lifespan of mostly unchanged engineering during the malaise era that was almost unmatched. It is, of course, yet another example of a brilliant design […]
