1973 BMW 2002tii

When the 2002 rolled onto the scene, the 2002tii was relatively expensive. At nearly $4,500, it was 50% more expensive than a Mustang with a 351 V8. Under the hood of the 2002 was not some huge V8 or even BMW’s signature inline-6, of course, but a 2.0-liter inline-4. The revelation was fuel injection, and though it was a complicated system, the results were undeniable. The 2002tii churned out 140 horsepower, while the Mustang’s 5.8-liter V8 made 177 horsepower. Given that the 2002 was also quite a bit lighter than the Mustang, it could also turn and stop pretty well – something the Pony wasn’t really great at. It signaled a way forward while the Mustang clung to the dregs of the past.

Today, tiis that have been gone through are quite valuable, and today’s car is a prime example. It’s got all the stuff you wouldn’t mind having in a classic car – air conditioning, a sunroof, a modern stereo, comfy Recaro seats, a Nardi steering wheel, Coco mats…while it’s not fully original, all the work is done. Of course, this means that it won’t be cheap. How not cheap?

1987 Mercedes-Benz 300SL

You know what, maybe the weather in England isn’t so bad after all. Of course I am saying that solely because of today’s car, a 1987 Mercedes-Benz 300SL up for sale in Southern England. It is finished in the rare Willow Green with a brown soft top over tan MB-Tex. What I would give if this one was left-hand drive.

2001 Mercedes-Benz E55 AMG Estate

Now that the summer is drawing to a close, we inch closer to another year where the clock moves one year ahead on the 25-year import rule for those who live in the United States. For certain cars that were built early in the model year like September and October, this is a big difference marker. What I mean by that is if you are looking to import 1998 model year, that doesn’t mean you have to wait until 2023. If that door sticker says “09/97” but it is a 1998 model year, you are good to go. But remember this could also work against you if it is made several months into that current model year.

Today’s car isn’t that case quite yet, but it is getting there and the hard work of getting it on North American soil is already done. Yes, this is 2001 Mercedes-Benz E55 AMG Estate up for sale in British Columbia at a still somewhat reasonable price. Although, what if I told you there was a way to bring this thing in the US legally right now?

2003 Porsche 911 Carrera Coupe

While prices of the 996 generation have surely risen over the past two years, there are some good deals still out there if you want to make some compromises. Mainly those compromises would equate to accepting higher mileage, but if everything has been taken care of, it really is just a number. Today’s car, a 2003 911 Carrera coupe up for sale in beautiful Pompano Beach, Florida, surely has an attractive price but there are some thing you’ll have to accept if you take it home.

1973 Volkswagen Type 2 Wild Westerner High-Top Project

Although it looks like the perfect late 60s/early 70s representation, the Ravenna Green/Apple Green combination you see here was rare. Quite, quite rare. It’s so rare, in fact, that while there’s an enthusiastic bunch that is trying to document the Wild Westerner package, they still can’t uncover much about its background or purpose. There’s some belief that it was associated with the 1974 Expo in Spokane, Washington – though there doesn’t seem to be any official link. But whatever the case for its creation, for $75 on top of your $3,800 van in 1973, you got the unique two-tone paint scheme with a blue stripe around. It was fetching and pretty, in a way.

Today’s example also has a high-top camper, though admittedly if you want to camp in it right now…well, it won’t be very comfortable. A winter project in the making, perhaps?
