No Reserve 1957 BMW Isetta 300 Barn Find

The Isetta was an Italian-designed, egg-shaped microcar that was built under license in several countries. BMW’s version became the world’s first mass-production car to achieve 78 mph in fuel consumption (take that, 2022 hybrids!). This 1957 BMW Isetta is… more»

Junk or Gem? Donated 1992 BMW M5

Desirable 5-Speed: 1973 BMW Bavaria

Secret Garden Find: Porsche 912, Lancia Integrale and More!

2004 BMW M3 In The Barn

Mini Bimmer Project Lot: BMW Isetta Duo

Updated Classic! 1971 BMW 2002

Fed up with modern cars that perform well while numbing the driving experience with technology, sound-deadening, and other distractions? This shiny orange two-door sedan promises to reconnect you (or connect you for the first time) with the visceral thrills… more»

Riviera Blue Project: 1973 BMW 2002

All Original 1958 BMW 600 “Limo”

My apologies for the fuzzy opening photo but the money shot was a tiny thumbnail so once it was enlarged to fit this format it looks more than a little blurry. The next photo of this 1958 BMW 600… more»
