Bidding farewell

Hi Folks:

I sold my 911 yesterday, may have seen the Red SC listed here. (that someone scammed the ad.)

Actually got my full ask. Going to a new owner in NH, who I know will enjoy it as much as me.

It was a great, really sorted car and I enjoyed my 6 years of ownership (twice actually).

Anyway I am moving onto something new; looking for a 2002; little more practical for me and my wife.

I know a bunch of you guys own both, so please chime in if you have some suggestions.

I will be moving over to the BMW section.

BTW. looking for a nice driver, prefer carbed, and no rust (I know..).

Something in the $15-$20k range.

Thanks to all of you on the forum, hopefully I contributed something; I know I learned a lot.

Cheers:

Gary Hamilton

All the best.

Stop back and report what you get into.

I did look at your profile just now and it said you were looking at a 320i thread.

Stick with your vision. I like the 2002 a lot.

Ah, I own both. The '02 (a '76) is my pride and joy. For a small car it has alot of room; when I was a kid my family (5 people) took our 1970 from CT to the west coast and back. A huge trunk. Not particularly safe by modern standards though.

You'll miss the 911 power, that's for sure. More than that, you'll miss the galvanized body. In fact that's what inspired me to add an old 911 to the garage: a vintage car with modern rust protection. If you can, get a car from the southwest. Be patient. The mechanicals, as you know, are bulletproof. The rust is the kicker, but it is not hidden so easily like in the E9's.

Good luck!

I will guess you know of Rob Siegel and his intensive search for any 2002's on the East coast. Having lived there once I know how the climate eats cars alive. You would want to spread your search across country, finding a good shell but a sorry interior in AZ, or something in between in the Northwest where moss lives in the trunk but clean water generally keeps the tub decent.

Yes, when I consider any car other than my beloved 911 I am thinking about a 2002 or Guilia coupe or boat tail Alfa (stretch, but...). Good luck and show us what you bought.

Loved the 2002 but the roughly 10 seconds to sixty sorta left me wanting more.

Thanks all.

I miss it already, but everything has time.

I should be able to buy a nice driver and add some go fast goodies and still have some dough left over.

The Bimmer forum on hear is nothing like the 911 forum.

Looks like 2002faq and some others are the place to be.

Haven't browsed the parts forum yet.

Any leads please PM me.

There are several 2002's here in Austin, TX, at Hwy 183 and Oak Knoll.

Not sure if the owner is willing to sell them, but they sit right out front lining the feeder road next to the highway.

I know nothing of them other than they look like nice examples.

No idea of story behind them and why they are sitting outside all the time.

Every time I think I'm going to sell my 911, I read about what I'd replace it with and find most people who own both vastly prefer the 911.

I'd say my Lotus is actually more fun than the 911 but like many Lotii is currently sitting inoperable in my garage waiting for the local Lotus expert to green light a space in his garage to fix it.

The 911 meanwhile is ready to roll whenever I am.

I've had several 2002's including a '74 square taillight 2002tii. And I had a '74 with a 180hp engine and 5 speed trans, but that was more a track car than practical daily driver. Love those cars!!

Had a 320i, 318i then a '88 535i and I REALLY miss the 535i. Would've love to have kept it but traded it in about 20 years ago on my first 911, a '87 Cab that was in perfect condition. Have looked at getting back into a pre '89 535i but no place to put it.

Gary ... tough way to go. either / or choices are hard when one wishes, both!

had Porsches in the family since 68 (a B) & BMWs since 73 (a 1600). many of both, + Alfas, ever since. my pov, upon reflection; the best 2002 ever was the e30 318iS (or any late e30 w/ M42, to save $, or if power-mad, get the 325i). best of luck.

There is a well sorted 2002 (roundie) down the street from me. Not original paint, and looks very clean. Its been sitting there with a For Sale sign asking $29k....
PM if any interest and I can send info - snap a cell phone pic for you.

2002s are fun. I've had about 20 of them since I was 16. Everything from the 1600 to Tiis, at every level of power, trim, racecar spec, etc. I love them to death and will never be without one.

But I can officially say the same about 911s. I don't think I'll ever be without one. I think my Defender 90 will also quickly go into that category. A good, vintage offroad rig is hard to beat.

The theme? "Old School Cool". If I wanted to be safe or fuel efficient, I'd buy a Tesla.

if I was not all wrapped up in 911's id look to the 02 for a sports car to be sure. after I sold my 6tt I saw one on BAT that I almost pulled the trigger on while I was shopping... shopping for a smog exempt 911...
