Lets see how long this takes. Last time, it was 7 minutes.

This is the car I bought off this board and took to the $2013 Challenge.

The good news- it's a running, driving, complete Cooper S. It has some suspension upgrades, a new windshield, new front brakes, rotors, and calipers, and an underdrive pulley. It's a hoot to drive.

The bad news- it's pushing 200K, and it's beginning to show signs of being an old BMW- it's got some electrical glitches, including the left turn signal won't turn off. I don't think it is a switch- probably a module.

It is also NOT a Southern car. The outer body is excellent- no dents, only 1 or 2 dime sized rust spots. But there is rust underneath. Nothing catastrophic (no frame rot, etc), but every time I am working in the car, I find the fasteners rusted, and have to fight with it.

This would be perfect for a motor swap, a Challenge car, or to repair and use as a daily.

I know you will want more details, I will post them later when I get home.

Just figured I'd get this ball rolling.

Car is in Albany, GA 31721

I don't post pics on this site.

I will send you some, which you can post if you like.

I will post a link to a previous thread with pics shortly.

Here's the original thread when I bought it:

SVreX gets chased across the country

It's an amusing read- looks like there were a half dozen GRMers trying to ambush me as I trailered it from MI!

I thought that thread had pics. It doesn't.

Who wants to host a few pics I can send you?

The previous owner (original owner) was an automotive engineer who designed suspension systems and test drove for a living.

This car was his first car. He learned to drive well on it.

He sold it to me when his family started growing and he needed a back seat.

He was an enthusiast. He drove it hard, but took good care of it.

Me too.

I love it, but it doesn't fit my life right now, and I don't feel like sinking money into it to start chasing BMW electrical gremlins.

In some ways the pics won't help.

The car photographs GREAT! The pics will make you forget it is a $2000 car.

(But it IS a $2000 car, so you have to keep your expectations in check)

Tough call.

I probably wouldn't. It hasn't been driven regularly for a while.

When it started electrical glitching, I parked it. I had other things to work on.

I don't know if the gremlins are the beginning of something more complex that could affect it's reliability.

I'd trailer it, until I had time to trouble shoot it a little better.

Well, I put $2000 in the title.

But if you'd like to offer me a $15 bonus...
