Beach Cruiser: 1995 Land Rover Defender 90 NAS

One Owner Rotary: 1989 Mazda RX-7 Convertible

Very Clean 1969 BMW 2002 Is A Bargain!

There’s a lot of déjà vu in looking at this low-mileage 1969 BMW 2002 for sale on Facebook Marketplace in Anaheim, California. I owned several just like it, back in the late 1970s when $500 bought fairly decent examples…. more»
