Doug M. has sent in his discoveries before, but this one was found a little closer to home. Many cars were parked in garages or barns when people stopped caring about them. These old cars weren’t “collector items” then. This 1965 BMW 1800 Ti is one of those forgotten classics, but luckily the owner has finally come around…
OK, this one is just a long shot! The BMW “New Klasse” appears to be coming into some significance. I took this picture a few years ago. I had owned this car since the 80′s and it is in my OWN barn!! It had gone unnoticed and unappreciated by me for years.
I have since sold this one (before I knew they were cool) but still have a matching one – 1966, that I am going to restore. The one I am keeping is a one-owner california car and has been in my barn for 25 years. It is the dark colored one. All the removed trim is inside.
Sometimes the best finds are in our own barns. Please keep us updated on your progress Doug. We would love to see more photos as the restoration progresses.
