This is what I want: BMW 2002
I am in love with BMW 2002s. I want one in a bad way, and every day I consider putting the Fun Bus up for sale and getting one of these little charming boxy cars. Particularly, I would like an orange one. I rode in one over the summer, a lovely dark blue 1971 round-taillight model, and I loved it. In the few miles I rode, I got the feeling the car was much lighter and tossable than a comparable Volvo. I loved the aircraft-style seatbelt latches. The seats were perfect vintage car simplicity and cuteness. The small details make it really great. I truly wish cars like this were still made.
