Forlorn Luxury – 1978 BMW 733i

November 12, 2015

In between featuring several sporty coupes inspired by last week’s Subaru BR-Z rental, it’s important not to let a couple of other interesting deals slip through our hands. And speaking of general bloat and jack-of-all-trades-but-master-of-none, look at what’s happened to the BMW 7-series since the original E23 version debuted in 1977. And on top of that, the remaining original cars have depreciated quite significantly, such that you can pick up a semi-running car for a 3-digit price.

Woohoo, Cheap Meat Again! – 1983 BMW 733i

March 5, 2014

It’s not often you can pick up a German autobahn bruiser for a mere 3 digit price. As you may know, RustyButTrusty loves it some old BMWs, and the E23 7-series is one of them. Mostly unloved in the used car market, although it’s not as clear why as with the E21 3-series, their perceived complexity might be a deal-killer for many. However, knowing you paid less than 10 Benjamins for a respectable looking car means you might be willing to overlook, say, broken cruise control or air conditioning that just needs a charge. You can find this 1983 BMW 733i for sale for the low, low price of C$999 in Maple Ridge, BC.
