BMW Outlaws and Hot Rods


Recommended Posts

I've kinda got a thing for some of the Beemers.... Here's a couple to get things started. First we're stanced with an already potent car....

Then we go into full blown race mode....

I'm sure you guys can find some to add...

I've seen people do some crazy stuff to those poor Isettas...

Yeah...decades ago, when I was elsewhere engaged in winning-hearts-and-minds, my significant other (at the time) sold my Isetta, for scrap value...along with a rust-free low-headlight Ghia and a '60 Corvair that had a trunk full of AMP electrical connectors.

That's too bad, man.... What would you have done with those cars?

Hard to say. Most likely I'd have gotten them running well and found them good homes.

I paid $5 (yup... five dollars) for the Corvair because it wouldn't stay running. Several shops had looked at it and put fuel pumps on it to no avail. The owner was frustrated and just wanted out. Turned out the eccentric on the cam that drives the mechanical pump had worn out. Weird, but an electric pump fixed it, and it was a daily driver.

I bought the Isetta cheap after it had been sitting for years, and the owner didn't want to put enough money in it to get it running reliably. Same story with the Ghia.
