He Built Out His 1971 BMW With Parts From a Junkyard and a 3-D Printer – The Wall Street Journal
Ali Javidan, 46 years old, a tech investor living in Sunnyvale, Calif., on his 1971 BMW 2002 restomod, as told to A.J. Baime.
In 1997, I was going to college, studying mechanical engineering. I had a huge passion for cars and almost no money. I had a budget of $800 to buy a car, and the most fun vehicle I could find was this 1971 BMW 2002. It was on sale for $1,000 and I talked the owner down to $550.
