96 bmw 740il

I own a 1993 525 i Love the car. I was able to get 96 BMW 740 IL for a very low cost it has been sitting since 2010 it is in cherry condition, it is my favorite car. Now I acquired a 1977 BMW 320 odd that it's been sitting for 25 years in a garage. We have it running but not quite ready for the road can't wait. The photo of the 96 740 IL is sitting on the top of Pike's Peak here in Colorado,

Finally 1977 320i got home

:rofl:This 1977 320 I Been sitting in the garage since 1997. The lady that sold it to me great price. She got a DUI in 97 could not afford the insurance at that time so she drove it into the garage and it's been there till today.. Those are the original miles just to gas smells real bad and the battery's toast. Headliner needs to be reinstalled interior and leather seats are in excellent condition. The mice chewed on three wires believe it or not and they never got inside which is totally amazing. We have a lot of work to do to even think about starting it but I believe it will start up the oil looks great I'm just blown away this was the first ultimate driving machine.
