One clean example πŸ‘ŒπŸ»
While in California, we were lucky to come upon the 10th Annual SoCal Vintage BMW meet held at Woodley Avenue Park in Van Nuys, California.  So now in to the Bavaria. The Bavaria was BMW's first move into the luxury sedan marketplace. This large 5 passenger had to compete with Mercedes' S-Class and Jaguar's XJ6. Starting out as a 2500cc, then 2800cc, then on to it's largest iteration to date of the m30 engine, the mighty 3.0 liter dual carbs or fuel injected straight six. One of the smoothest and mellifluous engines one could wish for. If memory serves, David E. Davis Jr., creator of Automobile Magazine, said of the BMW straight six, "sounds of raw ripping silk". And I concur. This engine's ability to ascend the rev range with nary a shake or shimmy is uncanny.  I've had several versions of the m30, all were incredible. But to me the sweet spot was the 2800cc version. Its eagerness to rev, 25 mpg highway fuel economy, and great low end torque, made it my favorite m30.  #bmw #bmwcca #bmwclassic #socalvintagebmw #bmwe3  #classiccarshow #classiccarsdaily #carporn #classiccar #classic #car #cars #carsandcoffee #classicoftheday #carlove #carshow #carshows #drivetastefully #youngtimers #youngtimer #carsofinstagram #instacar #instacars #instacarshow #betterinaclassic #carstogram #autoporn #carphotography @cacharitaworld @khamsindreams #jalopnik
While in California, we were lucky to come upon the 10th Annual SoCal Vintage BMW meet held at Woodley Avenue Park in Van Nuys, California.  The e28 shown here, came to California via the SEMA Show in Las Vegas. It was parked in the H&R booth. Or, was it the Motul booth? In any event, doesn't it look so purposefully menacing in it's DTM livery?  #bmw #bmwcca #bmwclassic #socalvintagebmw #e28 #motul #classiccarshow #classiccarsdaily #carporn #classiccar #classic #car #cars #carsandcoffee #classicoftheday #carlove #carshow #carshows #drivetastefully #youngtimers #youngtimer #carsofinstagram #instacar #instacars #instacarshow #betterinaclassic #carstogram #autoporn #carphotography @cacharitaworld @khamsindreams #jalopnik
While in California, we were lucky to come upon the 10th Annual SoCal Vintage BMW meet held at Woodley Avenue Park in Van Nuys, California.  Before I get to the Bavaria's that I list after, let's take a gander at the two e12's in attendance and one lovely e28.  Two e12's at one meet? That must be a first in many a year. It could only happen in California, most have long since given in to the tin worm,  disappearing forever. One was a 530i the other a super rare M535i with a dogleg close ratio 5 speed. These precursors to the e28 make me extremely happy. I fell for the 5 series right from the start. My neighbor had a Alpine Weiss 1977 530i. In the US, these were saddled with thermal reactors instead of catalytic converter. They were notorious for rusting out. His, like most 530i's, acted just an additional resonator, as they no longer scrubbed the exhaust.  Whenever he'd pull it out of the garage I'd drool. That big six makes a lovely noise with those now empty reactors. Its melodic exhaust note bouncing around the Brooklyn multi-car structure before  blasting him out onto the street. Oh man, those were the days my friends.  #bmw #bmwcca #bmwclassic #socalvintagebmw #bmwe12 #e28 #classiccarshow #classiccarsdaily #carporn #classiccar #classic #car #cars #carsandcoffee #classicoftheday #carlove #carshow #carshows #drivetastefully #youngtimers #youngtimer #carsofinstagram #instacar #instacars #instacarshow #betterinaclassic #carstogram #autoporn #carphotography @cacharitaworld @khamsindreams #jalopnik
While in California, we we're lucky to come upon the 10th Annual SoCal Vintage BMW meet held at Woodley Avenue Park in Van Nuys, California. Some beautiful BMW's were in attendance. Including one of my old loves, a 1972 Bavaria, 4 speed, in beautiful Agave over camel leather. We'll get to that one shortly.  How about this 2002tii Touring does it tickle your fancy? The color is great, I think it's Rivera Blue but not sure. But it clearly shows how a hatchback 2002 has a look all it's own.  #bmw #bmwcca #bmw2002 #bmwclassic #socalvintagebmw #classiccarshow #classiccarsdaily #classicsportscar #carporn #classiccar #classic #car #cars #carsandcoffee #classicoftheday #carlove #carshow #carshows #drivetastefully #youngtimers #youngtimer #carsofinstagram #instacar #instacars #instacarshow #betterinaclassic #carstogram #autoporn #carphotography @cacharitaworld @khamsindreams #jalopnik

Including one of my old loves, a 1972 Bavaria, 4 speed, in beautiful Agave over camel leather. We'll get to that one shortly.  In the meantime this 2002 restomod should hold you. It's the exact opposite of the previous 2002tii with the m20, 5-speed swap. The smooth torque rich m20 vs a no torque high rev-er. The 1997ci really cylinder is definitely not the original 2 liter, not by a long shot. The F20C is rated at over twice the horsepower of the original 2 liter.240hp to be exact. The power is put to the ground through a short shifting precise 6-speed manual box. If that engine code doesn't sounds familiar that's because it's not from BMW's stable. It's straight outta Honda S2000. Therefore, this rectilinear box can scoot and handle with the best of em. The dubious front bumper and two toned paint be damned, I want this puppy.  #bmw #bmwcca #bmwclassic #socalvintagebmw #bmw2002 #classiccarshow #classiccarsdaily #classicsportscar #carporn #classiccar #classic #car #cars #carsandcoffee #classicoftheday #carlove #carshow #carshows #drivetastefully #youngtimers #youngtimer #carsofinstagram #instacar #instacars #instacarshow #betterinaclassic #carstogram #autoporn #carphotography @cacharitaworld @khamsindreams #jalopnik

There were some lovely resto mods like this one. A 1974 2002 packed with an m20 engine and 5 speed manual that was painted it's original Granatrot. The m20 backed by a 5 speed make this classic more usable in modern day traffic and highway situations.  #bmw #bmwcca #bmwclassic #socalvintagebmw #classiccarshow #classiccarsdaily #classicsportscar #carporn #classiccar #classic #car #cars #carsandcoffee #classicoftheday #carlove #carshow #carshows #drivetastefully #youngtimers #youngtimer #carsofinstagram #instacar #instacars #instacarshow #betterinaclassic #carstogram #autoporn #carphotography @cacharitaworld @khamsindreams #jalopnik

In the meantime this 2002tii Touring in Colorado Orange is here to hold you over till it's Bavaria time. And you thought the hatchback was a modern convention? You were wrong.  #bmw #bmwcca #bmwclassic #socalvintagebmw #classiccarshow #classiccarsdaily #classicsportscar #carporn #classiccar #classic #car #cars #carsandcoffee #classicoftheday #carlove #carshow #carshows #drivetastefully #youngtimers #youngtimer #carsofinstagram #instacar #instacars #instacarshow #betterinaclassic #carstogram #autoporn #carphotography @cacharitaworld @khamsindreams #jalopnik
I’ve been driving the Wu-Tang Falcon for so damn long that I’d forgotten what it was like to drive an e24 that isn’t a literal dumpster fire. Thank you to @rickymollinedo for letting me borrow this nice ride while I figure out what my next daily driver is going to be.
