Frazer Spowart told the story of a devoted BMW E30 owner in the first installment of Cars I See. Now for the second episode, the subject is a 1972 BMW 2002 that's lavished with love by Patrick Burns, who's BMW affliction is inherited from his father Wendell. There's forty years of soul in Patrick's car, and it's a driver.

The inevitable blemishes are part of the car's personality, though, and one of the things Patrick enjoys is picking up more stories from the people he encounters when he's out with his distinctive silver 2002. It's a another well-told story where the car, while playing a central role, is but a vehicle for fostering deeper human connections. Scroll down to watch Episode 2 of Cars I See.

      Awesome video. Gotta fix that lip on the front bumper though. That'd get to be quick if it were mine. Other than that, the car is perfect. Simply because it's actually DRIVEN and not trailered to the nearest concourse lawn.

        About the only thing I don't like is the paint color, but yea, I agree that this car is perfect because someone is actually ENJOYING it, and not just locking it up away in some garage.

      Love it. Love, love, love 2002s. I'm not much of a BMW fan, but the ones that I tend to like the most are their older models, and I'd probably put the 2002 as one of my favorites.
