I did not forget

I've been driving my W114 few times already but i haven't been posting nor checking this forum mainly because i've been busy with the new to me 1972 BMW 2002.

The car has tons of things done to it and i'm working upgrading the suspension.
This car is on the opposite side of the spectrum from mercedes where the W114 is smooth, comfortable, luxurious, high quality materials machine, the bmw is a cheap, no frills noise making machine. Both give me different kind of pleasure when driving but the merc is definitely my favorite one.
Cheers.

They are fun! My 1st BMW was its big brother, a 1970 2000 4Dr. Pictured in front of our home (at the time) in Portland, OR.

The 2002 is one of my favorites of all time too. Tell you what, though it would be a great personal loss to me, I'll trade a 1980 Triumph TR7 for your BMW, Kav )

I know nothing about triumphs, :-)
Once I upgrade the suspension with h&r sport springs and bilstein HD shocks it will be even harder to let it go.

Thank you for the offer :-)
