For the Love of Hopeless Causes – 1980 BMW 633CSi and 1977 BMW 630CSi

June 9, 2015

This won’t be the first place you’ll read this, but if you’re looking at E9 BMW coupes, Alfa GTVs, fixed head Jaguar E-types, and more, and thinking “Confound it, man, I’ve missed the boat, and it’s already half-way across the Atlantic!”, perhaps it’s time to accept that the ship has sailed and retrain your focus on the ones that have yet to leave port. And just like with travel, buying your ticket in advance can get you some surprisingly good deals, like on the E24 BMW 6-series, which is clearly in the purgatory between old-used-car and classic. Check out this 1980 BMW 630 CSi for sale for $2900 in Silver Firs, WA.

Final Year – 1984 BMW 633 CSi

September 17, 2014

Every car enthusiast has their favorite iteration of BMW’s E24 6-series, whether it’s one of the European models, a coachbuilt convertible, or the M6. But even the lowliest 628 still has the presence of that gorgeous design, styled by Paul Bracq with input from Bob Lutz. Thankfully, many are at the point of being fully depreciated, so skipping a mortgage payment or two will allow you to put an E24 in your garage. Check out this 1984 BMW 633 CSi, for sale for $2800 in Reno, NV.

Eighties Coupes – 1981 BMW 633 CSi

February 25, 2014

Here we are again, looking at cheaper alternatives to a BMW icon, namely, the E9 coupe of 1968 – 1975. The obvious and nearest choice is the BMW E3 (2500/2800/Bavaria/3.0S), but if you prefer the style of a coupe, the E24 6-series comes pretty close in terms of elegance and performance. You still get a nice open greenhouse, the forward-angled shark nose, and the famous BMW six, along with a reduced (although far from eliminated) propensity to rust and the enhanced reliability and comforts found in a more modern car. Check out this 1981 BMW 633 CSi, for sale for $3000 (negotiable) in Walnut Creek, CA.
