Bob Marley's Bimmer

Almost Everything's Car of the Day is a 1973 BMW Bavaria. Rumor has it that this very car was driven by Mr. Bob Marley years ago, supposedly he didn't care that this was the most luxurious BMW of its day, he bought it because he thought the BMW name stood for "Bob Marley and the Wailers." Years have since gone by and his car came to our shop with a new owner, and lots of bad paint and old rust holes. We repaired and smoothed all of the imperfections that the car's owner wanted gone, sanded down all of the old chipping paint, sealed the car with a primer and finally we repainted the Bavaria in its original blue color! We are not 100% certain that this was actually Bob Marley's BMW, but we like to believe that the rumor is true!

Could it be the same car?

Eeeeehhhh, close enough.

Note: the current owner claims that he purchased the car at Marley's old recording studio in San Francisco and local residents told him that it was the car that Marley used while in San Francisco.
