As much as we adore vintage iron, we love the people responsible for keeping them around even more. You’ll never find a more dedicated sample of humanity than those prowling local swap meets and cruise-ins, each nearly guaranteed to boast a tale or two of how they came to be infatuated with the make or model of their choice. BMW has recently decided to tap into that wealth of unparalleled brand loyalty with a new video series that the company is calling “BMW Unscripted.” The episode after the jump focuses on one very smitten owner and the immaculate 1969 2800 CS he bought new over 40 years ago.

Murray Fowler was 40 years old when he drove his 2800 CS for the first time, and over the years, the guy has racked up a dizzying number of miles on the clock – a total of about 413,000 at the time that the video was recorded. This isn’t some garage queen locked away from the temptation of beautiful Southern California roads. Oh, no – this is the real deal. Hit the jump to take a look at the flick for yourself.
