Pick up from Rozelle, NSW
4 Seater. Manual Gearbox.
James is the proud owner of “Otto”. This is what he has to say about his love of the car:
“I’ll admit it, I’m in love with my 1974 BMW 2002 sedan. We first met in 2009 and, whilst not a ‘supermodel’ like a ‘74 Chevrolet Corvette, its compact, cute, boxy shape is an antidote to the curved lines of modern cars. The previous owner had lavished care and attention on it but I saw an opportunity to be faithful to the brilliant original BMW package albeit with a few modern comfort, performance and safety enhancements: a respray and re-trimmed interior complete with wooden Momo steering wheel, Bilstein sport shocks, lowered Eibach springs and 16 inch wheels with modern tyres to improve handling and braking. Air con was a no-no – it was never an original factory option and anyway that’s what the quarter-light windows are for! However, I did feel a decent stereo and smartphone connection was a must, especially for telling the significant other that you’re just ‘popping out to Bondi for a coffee’ or you’re taking them on an exploratory trip out in the country.
It’s lightweight body, upgraded suspension, torquey engine and five speed gearbox makes it great on the freeway as well as on windy country roads. And it certainly gets its fair share of admiring looks when driving around the city. It’s been photographed in the street, complimented at traffic lights and been glanced at admiringly by café patrons. All that’s required now is for its owners to match its allure!”
