So how does this happen? How does an iconic piece of automotive history get buried in a garage somewhere? It's a story you see from time to time that someone buys a car and puts it into storage forgetting about it and that car decades later becomes very valuable.
As a quick refresher, these are the 1981 BMW M1 specs:
3.5 liter M88/1 I6
Individual throttle bodies
Rear wheel drive
Only 457 examples were built and once this one is cleaned up expect it to find a home in a connoisseur's collection.
Let's hope BMW decides to build an M1 successor before the internal combustion engine is completely phased out.
