BMW has worked out that roughly one in 10 of all BMW cars and bikes made up to the 1980s is still roadworthy today. And it wants to keep things that way. So the company has opened the BMW Classic Center in Munich where factory parts and expertise can be tapped into to restore lovely old Bimmers, sometimes to a higher level than their original manufacture. The Classic Center opened this past April and has just completed its first full restoration, a 1972 BMW 3.0 CSi. It involved plenty of body work, sorting out some electrical issues, and replacing the old four-speed manual transmission with a model-appropriate slushbox-who are we to judge? The cost hasn't been mentioned, so we can safely assume that the owner had tears in his eyes for more than one reason.
