So that's why he hasn't been sending me a birthday card and 5 bucks every year... he's maintaining a classic!

Great Car, Great Guy, Great video!

It's stupid comments like this that make being a BMW fan so hard sometimes. Some jackass who is completely ignorant to the comments he is making and can't take any enjoyment in the fact that some people actually love their cars instead of constantly trashing every little detail and problem with them. Here is an idea... if you hate your cars so much, sell them and take the bus. Then you can bitch about everything about them as-well, but those of us who like our cars wont have to hear about it.

I think it is great that this guy loves his car. I wish more BMW owners had his view on things. Would make this site a lot more enjoyable to be on.

Exclamation BMW Unscripted. 413,000 miles in a BMW 2800 CS




Quote:
As much as we adore vintage iron, we love the people responsible for keeping them around even more. You'll never find a more dedicated sample of humanity than those prowling local swap meets and cruise-ins, each nearly guaranteed to boast a tale or two of how they came to be infatuated with the make or model of their choice. BMW has recently decided to tap into that wealth of unparalleled brand loyalty with a new video series that the company is calling "BMW Unscripted." The episode after the jump focuses on one very smitten owner and the immaculate 1969 2800 CS he bought new over 40 years ago.

Murray Fowler was 40 years old when he drove his 2800 CS for the first time, and over the years, the guy has racked up a dizzying number of miles on the clock – a total of about 413,000 at the time that the video was recorded. This isn't some garage queen locked away from the temptation of beautiful Southern California roads. Oh, no – this is the real deal. Hit the jump to take a look at the flick for yourself.
Cant get embedding to work.

a friend of mine has a CS just like that, and it's a badass car. it amazes me how smooth the ride is and how buttery smooth the engine and manual trans are. BMWs were far less common 40 years ago than they are now.

I despise the "Bucket List" phenomenon, however, if forced to make one, acquiring a CS is at the top. I've been lusting after one for years. Nardi wheel and shifter, Alpina wheels and lord knows what other period correct items were on that car. I was drooling.

The problem is that there are so few of the CSs left that haven't rusted away. They rust, even in California. A good restoration requires a significant investment.

A friend had gold one back in the '80s with twin turbos. It was awesome. Tore the diff out of it's mounts, though.

In 1974, I bought a 3.0CS new, kept it a year and sold it.

I wish I would have kept that car forever.
