You gotta love a car that's paid off, runs great and has never been damaged

BMW

OWNER: Frank Manthou, Tacoma

OCCUPATION: Teacher for 34 years

CAR'S YEAR, MAKE AND MODEL: 1976 BMW 2002

"I LOVE MY CAR BECAUSE... I bought it my second year of teaching and paid it off in three years. It has many memorable experiences for me during my teaching career. It is the original color with new paint, original seats reupholstered, is still stock, runs great thanks to Dan at Import Auto, and has never been damaged."
