Cool Great Story of One Man's Lifelong BMW 2002 Love Affair

BIMMERPOST NEWS
Great Story of One Man's Lifelong BMW 2002 Love Affair
40
COMMENTS

Josh Clason produces an excellent series, Depth of Speed, focusing on man's relationship with the automobile. This recent installment captures one man's (Sky Lund) lifelong obsession and love of the iconic BMW 2002. His passion and attachment to his 2002 is something we all wish our cars would allow us to develop.

The cinematography, story telling, and visuals of the beautiful inka orange 2002 is amazing in this piece. And, we dare you to not want a 2002 of your very own after viewing the feature below. Be sure to watch in HD.

Reminds me of my 1969 1600 which I drove for 8 years. Cars were so simple back then. Almost no electronics.

i love the relationship a person can have with an inanimate object like an automobile. gotta love people that hold on to a car, have a story with it, and are able to share that story with other enthusiasts. its why i can't understand people who continually change cars.

It's because there's nothing really special about the cars made today and sadly it's not worth trying to keep something running if there's always going to e a bigger and better car out there. I mean sure, you could take something like a 325 and really make it yours because it did this and that for you but would you really keep putting in money to keep it running (though I'm pretty sure there are a few out there who this)?

I know what your point is but it's not the mindset of today's consumer.

Another touching video or cars...I almost cried too...
I love it when there is a relationship established between the car and the owner.

There is another one I love. Honda NSX by format67.net

Well put... I guess people change cars till they find that perfect fit. Once you know, you know...

Wow. Thanks for posting. This is the car that made me fall in love with BMW as a kid just starting high school back in 1985 in Jamaica. Classmates' (bro and sis) mom had a gray 1974 which she ripped into and out of the school parking lot every morning to drop them off as she was always late for work. I would 'wait' every morning to watch and hear her. I want one.
